The song “Walk of Life” by Dire Straights in their 1985 album, Brothers in Arms is a very upbeat song that talks about a street musician that is happy with his life despite his seemingly poor circumstances. This song teaches us a lot about being content with our lives and just to be happy. Some lines related to these themes are:
"And after all the violence and double talk There's just a song in all the trouble and the strife" "Dedication, devotion Turning all the night time into the day" "And after all the violence and double talk There's just a song in all the trouble and the strife"
To me these lines convey a sense of happiness and joy surrounding Johnny even though he is struggling to “make it pay.” I think the overall message that this song is trying to show us is to be happy with what we have and enjoy life more.
