Hello Nigel!

NR> Personally, I don't hear it. I should listen to Down the
NR> Road... a bit more though. I didn't like it as much as
NR> Tracker. Should give it another shake.

When I first heard Knopfler's song my first reaction was "gee,
that sounds familiar". Took several plays to finally retrieve
the Shock The Monkey lyric from the dark recesses of my brain
and realize THAT's IT! ..albiet a slower and rather cool
version too.

You don't hear the similarity? It's the main, constant melody
that's the same.
