Were you looking for the greatest guitar riff of all time? Here you go. Did you think my music posts were gone? Think again, amigo.

If there’s a guitar riff that gives me the chills, it’s the one in Money for Nothing, the legendary 1985 hit from Dire Straits. It’s up there on my list of favorite songs.

I’m not sure how to explain it, but Mark Knopfler plays the guitar extremely well in a way that I’ve never heard anyone play before.

Also, the 8 minute version is the best one.

I love blasting this song when I’m in the car with my friends. We all sing along passionately.


I want my MTV, my money for nothing, and my chicks for free.
