Brothers in Arms... none closer.
Great tune off of one of the greatest albums of the mid-80's, and an essential part of my desert-island collection. Not a single bad track.
I don't think Mark served in the military, but he captured the feeling with his song. I have the feeling close friends did and they were close enough for him to know how much their time in service bonded them to who were once total strangers.
That's a great song
Yes it is. Mark Knopfler is one of my favorites. A little Youtube perusing finds he's played with many musicians and some of the music was far from rock.
