How do we know it's not money for nothing? Oh, and I didn't know Ms Kardashian was into Oracle databases - live and learn. ;-)

I didn't like the album "Brothers in Arms" too much (especially the infamous "Walk of Life" - shudder) but "Sultans of Swing" from their first album is a really great song. And Mark definitively knows how to play the guitar. They did a few other great pieces - "Telegraph Road" comes to mind.
