This one is dedicated to my Dad, who blasted this album out of his study on Saturday mornings. Love ya Po!

From the same album as “Money for Nuthin”, the album titled track was written solely for Knopfler to demonstrate his superb guitar work. The whispered vocals, soft strings all set up riff after riff after riff. And at 2:49, the axe is wielded – a slow burner solo with bluesy emotional power.

Brothers in Arms 2:49 – 3:15
