Best Sting Songs

Gordon Matthew Thomas Sumner, he was lead singer and bassist of The Police.

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.

His most beautiful song - interestingly, fearing a video would not get airplay they decided to make it a car commercial.

Its nothing to comment here... This os number 1

2 Fields 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

Beautiful song with an equally beautiful melody.

3 Shape 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 - MatrixGuy

One of my personal favorites overall. Excellent song! Could hear it all day long, never get tired of it.

I think this is the best song of Sting!

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.

Genius, sting! That's all.

5 Fortress Around Your Heart

Trying to take down a womans wall around her heart...may he indeed build a bridge to her heart again

/a wonderful song which isn't often heard. I especially liked the video of it!

Always loved the slow progression and climax of this song...dramatic

Yummy yummy man great song!

6 Moon over Bourbon Street
7 Children's Crusade

"Children's Crusade" has a way of putting me in a philosophical mood. Sting begins the song singing about those who lost their lives during World War One. Each verse reflects upon different periods in recent history in which many young people have unfortunately died. "Poppies for young men, death's bitter trade, all of those young lives betrayed..."
The songs ends with a comment about the tragedy at the time of this song's release; AIDS.
It is scary to think about how many people in their prime are no longer with us due to this horrible disease. I always get the chills listening to this song, and I believe it is truly a masterpiece. It is certainly the second best song off of "Dream of the Blue Turtles" (the best being "Russians."

8 Russians

Haunting and whole. Great piece-

Terrific sting awesome voice

Dark and wonderful!


9 We Work the Black Seam

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.

10 Fragile

Simply the best Song he has ever written, haunting and beautiful.

11 If I Ever Lose My Faith in You

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

12 If You Love Somebody Set Them Free

It is poppy and very sexy for the 80's

13 Love is the Seventh Wave
14 All This Time
15 Seven Days

Seriously? Guys! Please listen to his songs before voting!

One of my favorites, should get up to the top 10. - lordlouis

16 Brand 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!

17 Love is Stronger Than Justice
18 A 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...

I have listened to this song 1,000 times at least and can listen 1,000 more!

Oh what lyrics, what melody, what voice. This can't be a song it is a magic spell.

Absolutly mysterious...
The croon which comes from history...
The singing of our ancestors...

19 It's Probably Me
20 I Hung My Head

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