The Top TenXW
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.
Love it so damn much. So catchy a beat. The world genre feel to it makes it a must listen.V11 Comments
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
I couldn't believe Desert Rose was in the #1 position either. It wouldn't even make my top ten. This is his best solo song.V12 Comments
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 - MatrixGuy
One of my personal favorites overall. Excellent song! Could hear it all day long, never get tired of it.
The shape of his heart...V18 Comments
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.
The song that always make me feel better after hear that.
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.
Genius, sting! That's all.V2 Comments

Haunting and whole. Great piece-V2 Comments
Simply beautiful and peaceful Song! It reminds me of documentaries about people in poor countries working their hands off to get through life. Also in rich European Countries People fear to lose their Jobs. Pretty messed up to be dependent to money.
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...V2 Comments
It is poppy and very sexy for the 80's
Here "you" may refer to anyone ranging from god, mother, father to your lover
Anyone you believe in & don't wanna lose faith in, all beautifully accompanying with equally lovely music... !
This song is excellent and deserves a spot in the top 5.
This is the best song in his entire career, both solo AND with the police
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.V1 Comment
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!
Divine song, my favourite sting songV3 Comments
I love the song it is the best thing ever
Strong, pensive lyrics that are sung with power when needed. Fun time signature and repeating themes.
