    Sting doesn't come to mind for me as a favorite performer, but I really respect the versatility of his music and how he has grown over time. What's your favorite Police/Sting song?

    I always liked the Police song "Every Breath You Take" -- even when it was pointed out to me it is about stalking!! The guitar hook just gets me!


    Now my favorite song by Sting is "Ghost Story" (which I call "I Must Have Loved You" -- very haunting).

      You know I wish I knew all the lyrics and meanings of many songs.........
      And I LOVE Sting!

      One I really like is "Don't stand so close to me"

      I know the story but I'm too tired to type tongue

    Hi SGFR. I like your new avatar! Tres styling!
    That's a good song (Police, before Sting went solo).
    It is the story of a teacher having strong feelings for a student.
    Based on the book "Lolita" by Nabakov.

    "It's Probably Me", from Ten Summoner's Tales..is also very haunting and atmospheric.  It's a song about being there for someone, at all costs.

    Roxanne is very melodic and always reminds me of the 80's.

    I love sting's take on folk songs. "Roxanne' and "fields of barley" come to mind but my favorite has to be "Mo ghile Mear" it was written 300 years ago as atribute to Bonnie Charlie" Here he is singing it with the Chieftains.
    The movie clips are from a TV series about Robin Hood.
