The Everly Brothers

Why Worry

Composed by Mark Knopfler

Song Review by

One of the highlights of the Everly Brothers' comeback album, Born Yesterday, "Why Worry" was written by Dire Straits' guiding light, Mark Knopfler. A bittersweet ballad, it's a song that consoles and provides comfort to a wounded person. There is an almost hymn, gospel feeling to the song, and it remains another example of the timeless impact of the group.
