Next up is Sultans of Swing by Dire Straits, with Eric Clapton appearing as a guest. I swear there was no deliberate reference here to the fate of Saddam Hussein the night before last. This is a nice jammy live performance of the tune that made Mark Knopfler's band an overnight sensation in 1978.
I've tried to concentrate mainly on live performances where available. I just linked to the rest of the videos so that the page wouldn't load too slowly. If the videos were featured in a previous Les Enragés post, clicking the title will take you there. Otherwise it will take you to YouTube.

The Eagles - Hotel California
Steve Winwood - I'm A Man
Paul McCartney and Friends - Rock Medley

Got any links to good rock vids you don't see here? Just put them in comments so we can listen to them too. Think of this as like an old-time party in a friend's basement rec room - everybody brings their favourite 'stacks of wax', kicks off their shoes, and dances in their socks. -SBT-
I'm adding this one for local flavor:
Michelle Shocked - Come a Long Way
Happy New Year! ~Jump
