Writing Music Challenge: Cal - Mark Knopfler

in Musiclast month (edited)

It says that 2 Carinthians are enough for a choir, but I'm half Tyrolean, so I have absolutely no idea of music nor can I sing 😂


@detlev challenged me to take part in the Writing Music Challenge: Writing Music Challenge: Grobschnitt.


I like to listen to music, although I really do not have any special preferences. Usually it is only background music, but sometimes I have to put my earphones in and listen to music that suits to my mood, which is sometimes angry 😠 and sometimes sad or melancholic 😥 when I need my earphones. That can be Rammstein or Lindsay Sterling as well as Elvis Presley or The Who, but never ever I listen to Austrian Country Music 😉


Mark Knopfler - Cal

But today I want to share one of my favorite Music Albums for situations when I just want to relax and sail away with my thoughts after a long working day. It is Music by Mark Knopfler from the film Cal which came out in 1984 when I was 19, a few months after I left the army after 8 months of military service.
By this time I moved in my first own tiny apartment in a town rather far away from home and I felt much alone because I knew nobody there. Such music helped me a lot till the times got better a while later ;)

Mark Knopfler - Cal

There's no hidden gem in this album, because the songs are all gems for me, but if you'd ask me which song I like best I'd say "Father and Son". I still get goosebumps from the song like the first time I heard it.

Father and Son

The rules of the challenge are:

  • Tell me about an album you love and tell me about the standout album track on it.
  • Don't tell me about any singles on your album. I want to hear about that hidden gem that is tucked away and not played on the radio.
  • Give me a story about the album, how you learned about it, and most importantly highlight that special album track
  • Challenge THREE more people to do the same. It's good to write, especially about music. It’s a passion.
  • Make sure you add these rules to your post and feel free to use the format I use below.
  • Post your Music Challenge article in the MUSIC Community #hive-193816
  • If you want to write a post and have not been challenged, then do so.
  • Prefix your post "Writing Music Challenge" so it's easy to spot.

Mark Knopfler - Cal

See the Album on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=OLAK5uy_mkwkXk8YEBzGiOILvkJjIgap9qd-Xudis. It starts with a quite famous song I believe: Irish Boy

Almost forgotten: one rule says I have to challenge three more people, what sounds easy, but isn't somehow. So I'm asking

@qwerrie, @joanstewart and @bigsambucca

to participate in this challenge and hope no one is offended because I didn't ask him or her 😊

Well, that was it - a quite unusual post for me, but at least I could take photos of the CD version of the album and play a bi twith them in PhotoShop ;)


If you like my work I would appreciate an upvote, nice comment or maybe you want to share my post on your blog 😊 ... and maybe you would like to follow me, so that you never miss a post from me.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog,
have a nice evening,

Congrats Hannes in picking up the gauntlet and posting some of the music you enjoy.

Music is another thing I would like to know more about. I only know if I like it or not.

I listened to the first album and liked the sweet sad sound but also uplifting. It reminded me of the hymn ‘Amazing Grace.” I’ll listen to the other songs later.

Thanks for sharing your music dear Hannes.🎼 🤗

Have a wonderful Wednesday!😊

Hi Jo,

I was challenged, otherwise I wouldn't have had the idea of making a post about music. I'm the same as you, I either like it or I don't 😉
As mentioned in the post I like almost every kind of music when I'm in the right mood, even the guttural singing of the Mongols sounds nice 😉

Thanks a lot for your nice comment, dear Jo, and for the Goodies and for the rehive 😀

It's cold, but the sun is shining and so I think I'll end my working day a little bit earlier and go for a ride.
Hope you have a nice day too 🔆🤗

Most welcome Hannes, 😊 It’s my pleasure.

Raining hard here today but next couple days are predicted to be sunny.

I was working on my botany curation this morning for Amazing Nature Community and got it posted - probably need to work out some kinks yet.

Have a lovely ride dear Hannes and hopefully the sun keeps shining.🤗

Good morning Jo,

it's raining here today too, but they say the weekend is going to be nice again. But is has become quite cold and it was windy yesterday in the afternoon.

I have just seen your Amazing Nature post and you have done a very good job 👍

Hopefully the weather forecast is right for both of us and we have a sunny weekend, dear Jo 🤗🔆

Afternoon Hannes, 😊

The rain finally eased up and the sun is showing his face the morning.

Thanks for kind remark on the curation post. I was thinking you might post a botanical themed post into Amazing Nature Community. 😉.

I’m going to review my Alphabet Hunt W draft and post it this morning.

Hopefully the rain stops and the sun shines for you today dear Hannes. 🤗

Good afternoon Jo 😊

It is still raining here and I don't think it will stop today, but I hope the weekend will be nice and autumnal 😁

I have made a botanical post for qurator a couple of days ago.
Maybe I should have a look at the AN community too. Haven't posted there for quite a while 😉

I have seen your W post at work and it's great 😀
Mine is scheduled for 7pm our time, what is 2pm your time I believe.

Just let it rain today, but from tomorrow on the sun should shine 🌞

Wish you a wonderful sunny day, dear Jo 🌞🤗

I dont thiink I have ever heard that album, but will dig out my headphones and listen to it now as I edit some photos

I to cannot sing at all, and really listen to music more as background than anything else so we are similar in that regards

!tip

I love such music when I'm in the right mood - there's not much modern music nowadays which I really like. So I prefer the "oldies" and sometimes I even sing in the shower when I'm alone and the windows are closed, that nobody on the street can hear me 🤣 lol

Thank you mate 🤗

I listen to what is now the golden oldies channel make some feel old, but very few of modern music do I really consider as music sound more like annoying noise to me lOL

See I am worse I do not even sing in the shower or an empty house lOL

but never ever I listen to Austrian Country Music 😉

Why? Johan.. You made me eager to listen to Austrian Country musics haha!

Very true.. Music is a healer and can be a man's best company too. The two instrumental tracks that you've shared are so amazing. They are enchanting and so peaceful 😊

I love this kind of music and especially this album is one of my favourite 🙂

Our Austrian folk music (Volksmusik) is not what I like to hear, I never did - it's just not my music 😂 lol

Thanks a lot for your kind comment, @razeiv 🙂

Never heard that kind of music from Mark Knopfler.
Thanks for following that fun and a beery greetz from Belgium

Sure, I add a !BEER as well

Yeah, it's not quite the sound we are used to think of when we hear the name Mark Knopfler or Dire Straits.
I'm always happy to have some fun, thanks a lot for the !BEER 😊
