This song is an all timer for me. Smart, beautiful, touching. Worthy of any and all parallels to the Shakespearea n title and the timeless topic of star crossed lovers. Spectacular

I think MK developed his songwriting skills long before he met Dylan.
Report as inappropriate
One of my favorites! For those who thought it sounded like Dylan, I thought so too when I first heard it. Turns out MK played guitar for Dylan so probably was influenced in terms of lyrics writing, and their voices are pretty similar.

Cliff Eberhardt's cover was the first version of this song I ever heard. He does a beautiful job with it - check it out. Love this one too, especially the guitar.

I notice that the songs I like most are the ones from my late teens and early 20's; my formative growing up period. Funny how nobody writes songs like that anymore.

This song really touches my heart. When my husband and I first met it wasn't our time (our time was wrong). Love won in the end. One of my favorite memories is dancing to this song at the Mark Knopfler concert under the stars. Such a beautiful song and memory.

RE: ROMEO AND JULIET / DIRE STRAITS
Hope that Dire Straits' live CD, "On the Night" will be added to the Pandora site. The studio version can not in any fairness be compared to the song as captured on the live album. The performances of Knopfler, the band, and the importance of the fans to the recording are remarkable. Everyone's inside the song.
