Sting is the MAN when it comes to obsessed stalker songs

Another Sting penned song about serious stuff, paired with an Oddly boppy and happy tune... The remake they did in '87 was much darker and moodier sounding. This one is still a classic though...

The music video is AMAZING!
Sting says it's not a real school teaching experience. It may be, because, ''YOUNG TEACHER'' and ''THE SUBJECT OF SCHOOL GIRL FANTASY''. It's my fantasy! ❤️

This is great. Lolita themed as Lolita does.

Okay I really hate this type of comment but I'm only doing this to prove it fake: This freaked me out this isn't fake. Apparently if you copy and paste this on ten comments you will have the best day of your life tommorow. You will either get kissed or asked out.If you break the chain you will see a dead girl in your room tonight. In the next 53 minutes someone will say I love you or I'm sorry

Nabokov wrote Lolita.Crack a book instead of a beer every once in awhile crunch.

The only Nabokov I am familiar with is former Sharks goaltender Evgeni Nabokov.
