“Brothers in Arms” is a 1985 song by Dire Straits, appearing as the last track on the album of the same name. It is in G# minor. There are actually two studio recorded versions of this song: the album version which is 6:58 seconds, and the shorter version which is 6:05 seconds and features slightly different (and shorter) solos at the beginning and end of the song. The version that appears on Dire Straits’ greatest hits album, , is 4:55. Mark Knopfler usually played the song on a Gibson Les Paul guitar, rather than his usual Schecter “Stratocaster”, and a Les Paul appears in the distinctive promo video, which is in the style of a charcoal drawing, interspersing scenes of the band playing with scenes of war.
