Best Sting Songs

Gordon Matthew Thomas Sumner, he was lead singer and bassist of The Police.
The Top Ten
1 Fields of Gold

Why is this song not number one? This is the most beautiful song that has ever been sung by anyone. I absolutely love it.

I 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.

2 Desert Rose

Amazing oriental mix with a vivacious western voice. Desert Rose is one of the most epic songs for all generations. It will stay through history as one of the finest.

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

Love it so much. It has such a catchy beat. The world genre feel to it makes it a must-listen.

3 If You Love Somebody Set Them Free

This is his best song ever written, by far!

4 Shape of My Heart

Oh, come on, why isn't this first? I've listened to the two mentioned above, but Shape of My Heart is among the best songs in the world.

I have a lot of memories with this song from the movie Leon: The Professional. It's great. Every time I listen to it, it makes me so sad but in a good way.

That's what's so mysterious about this track. It should be on top.

One of my personal favorites overall. Excellent song! I could hear it all day long and never get tired of it.

5 Englishman in New York

Without any reason, this song makes me feel so different. I'm not English, but I feel like I am. I'm not in New York, but I feel like I am in New York.

Gratitude to Sting for this song. It will keep its place inside me, always.

The song that always makes me feel better after hearing it.

6 Russians

Haunting and whole. Great piece.

7 Fortress Around Your Heart

Trying to take down a woman's 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.

8 Moon over Bourbon Street

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 and Anne Rice, this song gave me chills.

9 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 song 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 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").

10 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 and don't want to lose faith in, all beautifully accompanied by equally lovely music!

This song is excellent and deserves a spot in the top five.

This is the best song in his entire career, both solo and with The Police.

The Contenders
11 Fragile

I always listen to this every time I get in a bad mood, and miraculously all the anger is gone.

Simply the best song he has ever written. Haunting and beautiful.

Fantastic guitar sound. This song makes me feel like I'm in the heart of nature. I would love for Sting to perform this song with Alicia Keys.

12 We Work the Black Seam

Simply a 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 losing their jobs. It's pretty messed up to be dependent on money.

13 Love is the Seventh Wave
14 All for Love
15 All This Time

It's jazz, it's pop, it's soulful, and it has great lyrics. What's not to like?

16 We'll Be Together

Love the backup singers in this song. Beautifully done. Totally makes the song better.

17 Seven Days

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

One of my favorites. Should get up to the top 10.

18 When We Dance

Absolutely my most favorite of all Sting songs! I dream every time I hear this song. It stops me in my tracks.

A fantasy song! I dream of Sting singing this to me!

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

19 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!

20 It's Probably Me
21 Every Little Thing She Does is Magic
22 A Thousand Years

In my opinion, it's one of Sting's best songs. This song has a magical atmosphere. It's so amazing because of the excellent music, nice voice, and 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!
