While idling in Tanaris, dusting off Southseas Pirates; I have justified mayhem, called it XP. I ninjaed that dungeon boss, with my two crooked friends in LFR. I've run off with the epics and sold it on AH, invented reasoning. I did put you on Ignore. Now the sun comes on the GM chat, and many a harsh words will be said. GM forgive me, for I am a worm; but them nubs needed their learning, and I need their shinies. The war must go on. Light be with us, in your judgement. Remember the Sunwell! :3

"The Man's Too Strong" I'm just and ageing drummer boy And in the wars I used to play And I've called the tune To many a torture session Now they say I am a war criminal And I'm fading away Father please hear my confession I have legalised robbery Called it a belief I have run with the money And hid like a theif I have re-written history With my armies and my crooks Invented memories I did burn all the books And I can still hear his laughter And I can still hear his song The man's too big The man's too strong Well I have tried to be meek And I have tried to be mild But I spat like a woman And sulked like a child I have lived behind walls That have made me alone Striven for peace Which I have never known And I can still hear his laughter And I can still hear his song The man's too big The man's too strong Well the sun rose on the courtyard And they all did hear him say 'You always were a Judas But I got you anyway You may have got your silver But I swear upon my life Your sister gave me diamonds And I gave them to your wife' Oh father please help me For I have done wrong The man's too big The man's too strong

Ken Swanston You need to try listening to the words before you post them. "Your sister gave me diamonds, and I lay down with your wife".

Drummer Terry Wiiliams is on Fire. Brilliant Performance from the Straits

In an interview he said the lyrics were inspired by someone like Albert Speer sitting in Spandau, a war criminal surviving but maybe hiding he wished he not had. Weird.

I dont know how but i forgot about how great this song is and havent listend to it for few years

The guitar playing skills of this song is so good its mental, but in combination w the lyrics it's one of the strongest modern songs ever made. A person not moved by this song is not really alive.

Did he use a pick in this song? I'm not quite sure tbh.
Elias Bagley (2 years ago)
Yeah actually the first few seconds of the song definitely looks like he is strumming with a pick
Oueax (2 years ago)
I know that very well but look at 3:16 he uses either a pick or his index finger nail. That's not the usual Knopfler fingerstyle he does there. And throughout the song he uses either his index finger for the strumming or a pick.
Elias Bagley (2 years ago)
Probably not - Mark Knopfler is known for not using picks.

Oh my, hadn't seen this one.  One of the things I most respect about Mr. Knopfler is the amount of "air time" his band members receive.  Then and now.  His respect for "it takes a village", is remarkable.  I love this man.

LOVE! LOVE! LOVE! This version absolutely ROCKS!!! I like it better than off the Brothers In Arms album recording. But my all time fave will always be "Telegraph Road", the ALCHEMY Live Performance. Epic!! Mark Knopfler is the BEST guitarist around; always was, always will be!!

Knopfler is no stranger to pick. He used it all the time back in the early seventies when he was still a low paid musican playing in local English pubs.

Funny. The comment got so many negative votes it was hidden. Wasn't trying to offend anyone but when you think of the conquistadors burning books and rewriting history, torturing infidels etc etc...it makes you think of religion.

This is written at a very high educational level for a layman. To understand this properly, you should have a law degree and a military history degree.

Somebody, maybe Eastwood, needs to do a series of movies based of some of Knopfler's songs. Truly amazing stuff. Wish I had that ability to produce such lyrics.
g00nther (6 years ago)
The clashing guitars signify the attempt by the confessor to rid his thoughts of the guilt and remorse from killing "The Man" I can see him clutching his temple, teeth gritted, rocking forward and back, and shaking his head, so he could forget. He killed "The Man" but he is still haunted by his laughter and his song. He's too big, he's too strong. Even in death. Even stronger in death. Now he faces justice, and lashes out verbally at a former comrade who commands the firing squad.
g00nther (6 years ago)
Mark Knopfler is a genius lyricist. My interpretation: It's the confessions of a killer who's haunted, particularly by one killing, that of "The Man". The Man was a leader of a non-violent movement, with the serene presence of Gandhi, or Mandela, who sang his haunting songs in captivity. When the confessor came to execute him, he just looked at him without fear, and laughed serenely, with the knowledge that his death will inspire, and eventually overthrow the regime of the confessor.
John Doe (1 year ago)
He's said in an interview that his main inspiration was Rudoph Hess/Speer, sitting in the Spandau prison. The part of "burned all those books", "diamonds"(stolen from Jews etc), "fled with my armies and my crooks", "the sun rose on the courtyard"...but he also said It's was just loosely based on this, "on a Hess-like, Spandau character" in general. Whichever, it's brilliant, moving lyrics.
