Fields of Gold

Sting – “Fields Of Gold” from Ten Summoner’s Tales (1993)

On Sunday evening, I was driving through west Michigan and scanning through radio stations when this song came on. I had spent a wonderful weekend with old friends; the sun was setting over rolling soybean and corn fields (no barley, far as I could tell); the gentle lilt of this tune bowled me over. It’s a great melody.

Give it a listen if you haven’t ever. It’s a tasteful, non-pompous song. This guy is way better than those other adult contemporary bozos.

My next post will be way cooler, promise, okay?

You know, Sting used to be kind of cool once

Buy it here, if you’re so inclined

    In the spirit of songs I’m not supposed to like, I really like two Jakob Dylan vehicles right now from the first Wallflowers. I get these songs stuck in my head a lot–these two songs and the song “this kiss” which is the worst song I can think of.
