Why Worry

Brothers in Arms is the fifth studio album by British rock band Dire Straits, released on 13 May 1985. Brothers in Arms charted at number one worldwide, spending ten weeks at number one on the UK Album Chart (between 18 January and 22 March 1986), nine weeks at number one on the Billboard 200 in the United States, and thirty-four weeks at number one on the Australian Album Chart.

Why Worry appears as the final track on the first side of the LP. The song was never released as a single. The main riff of the song is a quiet melody played on the electric guitar.

Why Worry is without doubt one of Mark Knopfler’s greatest songs. The Everly Brothers recorded the song for their album from 1986 titled Born Yesterday. Knopfler had recorded it with Dire Straits the previous year, but apparently had written it with the Everly Brothers in mind.

Twenty years after the Everlys’ performance above, Mark Knopfler and Emmylou Harris released a collaborative album called All the Roadrunning. They didn’t record “Why Worry” on that, but when they went out on tour, the song became part of their regular set list.

The most celebrated British guitar hero to emerge in the 1970s and ‘80s, Mark Knopfler rose to fame as the leader of Dire Straits, and his songwriting and incisive guitar work played a decisive role in making them an international success story. At a time when punk and new wave were making technique for its own sake seem irrelevant, and metal was taking the guitar solo in noisier and unpredictable directions, Knopfler's clean but dexterous picking proved there was still room for traditionalism and chops in mainstream rock & roll.

The Brothers In Arms tour saw Dire Straits play 234 shows in twelve months to combined audiences of about 2.5 million. In 1986, Brothers in Arms won two Grammy Awards at the 28th Grammy Awards, and also won Best British Album at the 1987 Brit Awards. In 2000, Q magazine placed the album at number 51 in its list of the 100 Greatest British Albums Ever. In 2003, the album ranked number 351 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the "500 Greatest Albums of All Time".

Why Worry lyrics


Baby I see this world has made you sad
Some people can be bad
The things they do, the things they say
But baby I'll wipe away those bitter tears
I'll chase away those restless fears
That turn your blue skies into grey

Why worry, there should be laughter after the pain
There should be sunshine after rain
These things have always been the same
So why worry now

Baby when I get down I turn to you
And you make sense of what I do
I know it isn't hard to say
But baby just when this world seems mean and cold
Our love comes shining red and gold
And all the rest is by the way

Why worry, there should be laughter after pain
There should be sunshine after rain
These things have always been the same
So why worry now
