The Top Ten

1
Desert Rose
Nice song, it has a real good feeling to it. Listening to it makes me feel all tingly inside
Amazing oriental mix with a vivacious western voice... Desert Rose is one of the most Epic/for all generations song, that will stay through history as one of the finest.
Featuring Algerian ra´ singer Cheb Mami, creating a distinct world music feel to the song

2Fields of Gold
The fact that Desert Rose is voted as the number 1 song here clearly means that most voters haven't heard much else
If someone asked me what my favourite song is I would answer Fields of Gold as soon as he or she finished asking the question
Best song ever! Beautiful melody

4Englishman in New York
Magical and brave. I absolutely love it. However, I would have voted for the haunting, stalkerish Every Breath You Take - one of the most sinister pop songs ever written - but presumably it's not there as he wrote it as part of The Police.
Without any reason, this song makes me feel so different. I'm not English, but I feel like English. I'm not in New York, but I feel like I am in New York. Gratit─▒de to Sting for this song. It will keep it's place inside me, always.
The song that always make me feel better after hear that.

22I Hung My Head
Strong, pensive lyrics that are sung with power when needed. Fun time signature and repeating themes.

23Why Should I Cry for You?
Sting wrote this about his father. Mystical sound. Love this and "I'm so happy that I can't stop crying". His best 2 songs. I also like the little known "This Cowboy Song". Great song. Nobody is like Sting, totally unique.

35Another Day
It talks about poverty and all the problems in the world, and days keep going by with nothing changing, truly brilliant lyrics and it should be a lot more famous than it actually is. I was on the Bring On The Night live album but the recording did not make it on an album. totally underestimated brilliance. Not to mention the amazing Blue Turtles Band behind him.
