As any self respecting Hitchhiker fan should be aware, and no doubt IS aware, Dire Straits had a very important role to play in Arthur Dent's life when he returned to Earth after his 8 year absence.
The romance between Arthur and Fenchurch had a bit of help from the band. If you don't believe me - read it for yourself in that wholey remarkable, and increasingly inaccurately named, trilogy that is "The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy".
However, the vital role Dire Straits played in the lives of Arthur and Fenchurch may not have the recognition that it deserves.
