Everly Brothers: Why Worry


My favourite Everly Brothers track although it is later than my usual era. It was written by Mark Knopfler and released on the May 1985 Dire Straits album Brothers in Arms.

The Everlys covered it on their brilliant Born Yesterday album produced by Dave Edmunds and released later the same year.

Here they perform it with Knopfler and Chet Atkins.
