"Money for Nothing" is a known song by British rock band Dire Straits, the second track on their fifth studio album.

The song's lyrics are written from the point of view of two working-class men watching music videos and commenting on what they see.

The song features a guest appearance by Sting singing background vocals, providing both the signature falsetto introduction and backing chorus of "I want my MTV." The groundbreaking video was the first to be aired on MTV Europe when the network launched on 1 August 1987.

Well phrased; it could be noted as nothing new...

This may be sung into a sadden tune within blues.

I'd reckon all songs and rock tunes.... 

But "MONEY for NOTHING" is the best among loons.
