Best Sting SongsGordon Matthew Thomas Sumner, he was lead singer and bassist of The Police.
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.
Why is this song not number 1. This is the most beautiful song that has ever been sung by anyone. I absolutely love it.
Heard a guy on The Voice cover this song. I just loved it! Sting is amazing!
Best Sting song by far. Great lyrics providing unbelievable emotion. A masterpiece
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.
Nice song, it has a real good feeling to it. Listening to it makes me feel all tingly inside
This is His best song ever written. By far!
Oh come on why isn't this first. I've listened all the two mentioned above but shape of my heart is among best songs of world.
Have a lot of memories with it with leon professional movie
It's great..every time I listen to it makes me so sad but ina good way...that's what so mysterious bout this track..should be on top
One of my personal favorites overall. Excellent song! Could hear it all day long, never get tired of it.
Its one of the most charismatic song that I have listened! I affirm sting about this song!
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.
I'm an alien I'm a legal alien!
Genius, sting! That's all.
Trying to take down a womans wall around her heart...may he indeed build a bridge to her heart again
Always loved the slow progression and climax of this song...dramatic
Yummy yummy man great song!
I was lucky enough to hear him sing this for the very first time for an audience at The Ritz in NYC.. As a huge fan of Sting & Anne Rice, this song gave my chills.
"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."
Haunting and whole. Great piece-
Dark and wonderful!
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.
I always listening this every time get bad mood and miraculously all anger gone...
Simply the best Song he has ever written, haunting and beautiful.
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
A very powerful song
Seriously? Guys! Please listen to his songs before voting!
One of my favorites, should get up to the top 10.
Love the back up singers in this song...beautifully done totally makes the song better
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
It's jazz, it's pop, it's soulful and it has great lyrics: what's not to like?
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!
Love this song
A man painfully begging a woman to be his through a song woven with choices she will have to make...heart wrenching
Such an emotional 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!
The croon which comes from history...
The singing of our ancestors...
Strong, pensive lyrics that are sung with power when needed. Fun time signature and repeating themes.
