Chuck’s Classics, featuring Dire Straits

Money For Nothing
Dire Straits a British rock group formed by Mark Knopler along with his brother and a couple of others. If you’re going to listen to this hit from 1985, I have picked the long( 8 minutes) version, which really shows their talent. Listen to Money For Nothing. Enjoy.
