Sting needs to remember he got famous singing like a girl about a hooker.

He's not the first, and won't be the last.


Also, he's never been one to stand still - not afraid to try different things. Admittedly they don't always come off.


Have to admit to being a fan - I was of The Police (especially live) and have been of Sting since they split. The early stuff is, IMO, outstanding. I've seen him a couple of time live and been more than impressed on both occasions.

My younger brother always kept me close to the Police/Sting U2 fires. And I like both acts alright. This particular Sting tune however, is among my favorites. I find it absolutely eminent. Very well crafted and still rolling easy as a mountain stream. The 'hotel-room version' here lifts it up. Amazing what this little parlour guitar can do in the hands of excellent Dominic Miller – Ian Anderson knew for years.


Sweet Child in Time – A black shining cornerstone in early '70ties rock (which means rock as a whole)*. They stole it from the Californian band It's Beautiful Day, , , did you know that. . .


And did you 'musical ears' out there ever notice the similarity between Child in Time and the Police song Walking on The Moon. Funny coincidence – same notes, different phrasing.






*I admit to be among the 100.000's that sat stoned on the floor in the multi-colored lights of the teenage temples, totally blown away by tracks like this. People became gods and saints in these situations – some flew to Saturn and Mars, a few never came back – others simply went insane.
