Dire Straits – Money For Nothing (1985)

This song, Money For Nothing, by Dire Straits, is from the album, “Brothers In Arms”.

It reached number 1, on the Billboard Hot 100, in 1985, but only made number 4, on the chart, in the UK.

This groundbreaking video was the first to be aired on MTV Europe when the network launched on 1 August 1987.

Gerry & The Pacemakers – You’ll Never Walk Alone (1964)

I recently managed to find a copy of this song, on vinyl, “You’ll Never Walk Alone”, by British band, Gerry & The Pacemakers.

It reached number 1, in the UK, in 1964, but never charted on the Billboard Hot 100.

This song is a huge football (soccer) anthem, in the UK, particularly in Liverpool, where the band are from.
