Song 294: Walk of Life by Dire Straits

Not sure what to make of today... still processing the tragic events in our city. I thought I would record an upbeat and cheerful sounding tune with a good vibe, looking for a bit of relief from the unfortunate and cruel act of violence that took place in Ottawa today.

Whenever I hear this song by Dire Straits, I remember where I first heard it. My aunt Nancy use to play it on a cassette tape out at her cottage in the summer. I haven't seen Nancy in a while and today I ran into her at my parent's place so I thought of this song again.

I thought this song would sound neat if I gave it a bit of a Cajun vibe, so I added some accordion to the acoustic guitar. From the album "Brothers in Arms" here is my take on "Walk of Life."
