Dire Straits - Heavy Fuel album
Heavy Fuel" is a song by British rock band Dire Straits, from its 1991 album On Every Street. The song was also released as a single, and reached number one on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Tracks chart in the United States, after "Money for Nothing," the band's second song to do so. In "Heavy Fuel," Mark Knopfler ironically extols the virtues of such vices as cigarettes, hamburgers, Scotch, lust, money and violence.
