dIRE sTRAITS by JuanOsborne dIRE sTRAITS by JuanOsborne
Time to talk about the best band ever: Dire Straits. Yeah I'm getting old but the true is that I never tire listening this band songs. Sultan of Swing, Telegraph Road, Tunnel of Love... too many incredible songs. What can I say... Hey Knopfler THANKS!!!

My first idea was to count the most used words in his lyrics. I took around 50 songs and counted it. The beginning of the list: got (85),come (78),just (76),get (65),like (65),know (64),say (63),now (61),can (54),twisting (42),love (40),go (39),one (39),time (38),baby (37),take (37),away (35),yeah (34),give (33),see (30),way (30),well (30),make (29),pool (28),long (27),night (27),play (26),think (26),never (25),sometimes (25),man (24),around (23),boys (23),day (23)...

But finally I decided to take the songs names. Remove non significant words and randomly sorted the rest of them. Then I moved "Sultans" to the first position as a tribute to Sultans of Swing :-). Also I found the font used in Alchemy cover and change all the words to inverse case so it looks, more or less, like this mythical album cover. Of course Mark Knopfler is the main subject of this illustration.
