Love Over Gold is a hauntingly beatiful song, about the risks in life by following your heart rather than just doing what other people do - at least that's what I get of it.

 Rolling Stone : Love Over Gold : Review   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-01)
Love Over Gold is not just the title of Dire Straits' fourth album, it is a statement of purpose.
Over a discreet synthesizer ring, gurgling marimba and a delicately plucked acoustic guitar, he grumbles into his whiskey glass like Bob Dylan in a trench coat: "You get to meet all sorts in this line of work Treachery and treason There's always an excuse for it," he recites in a raspy nicotine snarl.
"Love Over Gold" is a whispery ballad that plays the jazzy tingle of vibes against an almost classical piano air and the violinlike pluck of a synthesizer to heighten its images of a casual, even cavalier, sex life.

 Love Over Gold
"Love Over Gold", the fourth album by Dire Straits, was released in September, 1982, and was the group's first to top the British chart, holding the Number One position for a month.

In all of its 41+ minutes, and although it does not reflect as wide a range of musical styles as Knopfler's later work, "Love Over Gold" is one of the most complex pieces of recording he ever produced.
One gets the feeling that when Knopfler sings of "Love Over Gold" he's referring not only to the character in the song, but also of his philosophy regarding his music, that the art is far more important than commercial success.
Love Over Gold is my favourite DS album after Brothers in Arms, and On Every Street.

Ulee's Gold is also set in Florida, and it too is a sombre, ambivalent character study that is more concerned with mood and atmosphere than rushing the plot to its conclusion.
Her wholesome sitcom aura adds an unwelcome sense of blandness and superficiality to the closing scenes of family reconciliation, and the script itself begins to verge on sentimentality near the end.
The images of a darkened highway at night, of a sunset over an empty parking lot, of a pickup truck wending its way through fields and swamps -- all are simple, but all are evocative.

 [minstrels] Love Over Gold -- Mark Knopfler
I love the simplicity of their songs - straightforward (but meaningful) lyrics, hummable tunes, and above all the lovely voice and chords of Mark Knopfler.
The distinctive feature of the group was the meaningful songs, excellent guitaring (which seems to be 'singing' along with Knopfler) and the gravelly voice of Knopfler.
They have had many hit songs among which the best loved song is arguably 'Romeo and Juliet'.
