I'm not sure I would call this Knopfler's most famous composition.

What about "Sultans of Swing" or "Walk of Life" or "Romeo and Juliet" or "Brothers in Arms" or "Money for Nothing" or even "Sailing to Philadelphia"? Or in terms of scores, even "Local Hero"?

Mark Knopfler is a wonderful songwriter. His scores are essentially instrumental versions of his song style.

I believe Christian was prolly referring to most famouse FILM composition, not pop song, and Princess Bride is definitely better known than Local Hero. For film or film score aficionados, Local Hero may be well known, but the majority of people have never even heard of Local Hero.
