Friday fanfare: "Skateaway"

Dire Straits has always been a favorite band of mine, and for years, my favorite song of theirs was "Skateaway." It had a cheerfully low-budget music video that I always loved watching (there's also no doubt that it was made in the 1980s as you watch it), and I recently listened to it for the first time in ages when we were driving to MystiCon, and loved it all over again....

Added bonus: Here's a live performance from when the Making Movies album came out in 1980 from Fridays Live:
