The Top Ten

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.
His most beautiful song - interestingly, fearing a video would not get airplay they decided to make it a car commercial.
[Newest]This is a great song. Even my Dad loved the song when we lived in South Africa.

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
[Newest]My favourite song of Sting! Why is it no.2? -_-

3Shape of My Heart
Its beauty is beyond words... Never tire listening to this song... The most played song on my ipod. )).. Simply has to be number 1
Included on the "Leon"(1994) blockbuster


One of my personal favorites overall. Excellent song! Could hear it all day long, never get tired of it.
[Newest]The best song I've ever heard...

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. Gratitıde 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.

Fantastic Guitar Sound, this songs make feel to be in the Heart of the nature, I would like when Sting would perform this Song with Alicia Keys
Simply the best Song he has ever written, haunting and beautiful.
I always listening this evferytime get bad mood and miracely all anger gone...


7It's Probably Me

8Fortress Around Your Heart
/a wonderful song which isn't often heard. I especially liked the video of it!
Yummy yummy man great song!

9Moon over Bourbon Street

10Children's Crusade

The Contenders

11If You Love Somebody Set Them Free
It is poppy and very sexy for the 80's

12If I Ever Lose My Faith In You

13Mad About You

14Brand New Day
A brilliant, jazzy, uplifting ode to having hope. Definitely my favorite Sting song! If you're having trouble getting through a tough day, or even just getting out of bed, this song will put a spring in your step.

15We Work the Black Seam

16Love Is the Seventh Wave

17All This Time

18When We Dance

19Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic

20A Thousand Years
In my opinion it's one of the best songs of sting. This song have a magical atmosphere, it's so amazing song because of excellent music, nice voice, fantastic lyrics...
Oh what lyrics, what melody, what voice. This can't be a song it is a magic spell.
I have listened to this song 1,000 times at least and can listen 1,000 more!

21Love Is Stronger Than Justice

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.


25Stolen Car (Take Me Dancing)

26After the Rain Has Fallen
This song has such a catchy chours.

27The Book of My Life

28Demolition Man

29Taking the Inside Rail

30All for Love

31We'll Be Together

32My One and Only Love

33My Funny Friend and Me

34Hounds of Winter

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.
