I didn't want to derail the Scotch Sampler thread but no talk about Money for Nothing can be complete without this weird al video/excerpt from the movie UHF. The video is very close to original Dire Straits video in it sequence (with obvious changes) done expertly by weird al.

Today a top 10: Tom Petty

10. Learning to Fly
9. Out in the Cold
8. King's Highway
7. Zombie Zoo
6. I Won't Back Down
5. Jammin' Me
4. Free Fallin'
This is my wife's and my song. Its not a typical romantic song. As a matter of fact the guy in the song is a bit of a jerk. But the chorus was on the radio when I was in an ICQ chat with my then girlfriend now wife and when the chorus came on it described my feelings exactly. (And I'm free / Free fallin', fallin') I shared that with her and it became our song.
3. Runnin' Down a Dream
2. Refugee
1. Don't Do Me Like That

In posting on facebook (from my phone) about my lack of internet, phone and tv today I was looking for the exact lyrics of "no phone, no lights, no motorcars". And I came across this from Bowling For Soup a couple years before their more known songs.
