The Postal Service have added 17 more dates to their headlining reunion tour, extending their spring outing into summer after quickly selling out a slew of dates in the U.S. and Europe, including Brooklyn's Barclays Center. A second Barclays show has been added for June 15th, and the band will also hit venues including Red Rocks in Morrison, Colorado; Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Maryland; and the Greek Theater in Berkeley.

“Money For Nothing”

Dire Straits | 1984

Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
