Best Sting Songs


The Contenders: Page 2

21 I Hung My Head I Hung My Head

Strong, pensive lyrics that are sung with power when needed. Fun time signature and repeating themes.

22 When We Dance When We Dance

A man painfully begging a woman to be his through a song woven with choices she will have to make...heart wrenching

If he loved you
Like I love you
I would walk away in shame
I'd move town
I'd change my name

These lyrics are amazing

23 They Dance Alone They Dance Alone
24 Mad About You Mad About You

That's one of the best! So passionate like the true love is.. - AlexaVi

25 Why Should I Cry for You? Why 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.

26 Until... Until...

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

27 My One and Only Love
28 Hounds of Winter
29 Stolen Car (Take Me Dancing) Stolen Car (Take Me Dancing)
30 After the Rain Has Fallen After the Rain Has Fallen

Word poetry made into an uplifting song

34 Demolition Man Demolition Man
35 Taking the Inside Rail Taking the Inside Rail
36 All for Love All for Love
37 Another Day Another 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.

38 Walking On the Moon Walking On the Moon

You can't neglect this song! Can't believe this one is not even mentioned.
