Sultans of Swing è un singolo del gruppo musicale rock Dire Straits, estratto nel 1978 dal loro omonimo album. È stato ri-pubblicato nel 1979 in Brasile. Fu il singolo di debutto dei Dire Straits ed è anche una fra le loro canzoni più note, grazie agli ingegnosi fill e agli assoli di Mark Knopfler che mescolano virtuosismo e tecnica.
