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]Please. This is far better than Desert Rose.

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.
A very powerful song

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!
[Newest]Divine song, my favourite sting song

19Brand 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.
Such an uplifting and poetic song!

20I Hung My Head
Strong, pensive lyrics that are sung with power when needed. Fun time signature and repeating themes.

21When We Dance

22Mad About You
That's one of the best! So passionate like the true love is..


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.

Such a beautiful waltz about meeting the true love. I adore it!


25Stolen Car (Take Me Dancing)

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

27We'll Be Together

28My One and Only Love

29The Book of My Life

30Hounds of Winter

31My Funny Friend and Me
Soundtrack to my favorite animated film. Such great lyrics and meaning!


A very underrated song

32Demolition Man

33Taking the Inside Rail

34All for Love

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.
