Today, we are thrilled to introduce you to yet another acoustic gem by Jurgen. So, this time it features the timeless classic “Where Do You Think You’re Going,” also originally by Dire Straits.
This captivating cover is a recent addition to Jurgen’s repertoire, officially released on September 7, 2023. In discussing his inspiration for this rendition, Jurgen shared:
“This song has always fascinated me. I’m just thrilled by the interaction of the guitars, the harmonies, and the melodies. It’s simply fantastic. The constant major-minor change is also a real listening experience.”
“Where Do You Think You’re Going” is the title of a song by Dire Straits, originally released in 1979 as the B-side of the single “Lady Writer.” This poignant composition revolves around a monologue by the narrator who grapples with the impending departure of the woman he loves. Rather than accepting her departure, he clings to his pride.
The song stands out as one of the most prominent tracks from the “Communiqué” album, characterized by its remarkable instrumental coda featuring an increasingly incisive rhythm and the enthralling phrasing of two guitars.
