Love sting....... . . . !
this man can write lyrics! One of the truly great artists of our time.
oh yeah great to hear on a Friday morning
It's Sting's version of Led Zeppelin'sKa s h m i r ! Cheb Mami sounds otherworldly on this track, it's exhilarating . Also, this song made me buy Frank Herbert's widely lauded science fiction novel, Dune simply because Sting is a fan of the book (and series), and the book partly inspired this song.
Love sting akways...... . . .
.....sting is.....a talented and. Amazing musician.... . . . .
oh wow this sounds so good on a Tuesday afternoon, U rock Sting!!!!
I love sting .....
In a way, this reminds me of "in you eyes" with Peter Gabriel & Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. I have 6 or 6 Ali Khan Cds.

Intoxicating ! It's hard to ever get tired of listening to this song.
I laughed like he'll when they did this song as a skit on SNL... but then I saw the video and I was a changed man. Sting is a genius on so many levels
oh yeah sounds good on a Friday afternoon!!! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
Lets go some where Rich!

Saw the live special he was the middle recording when 9-11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon occurred.... . y e t he persisted on continuing on honor or those who lost their lives. AWESOME
I love this song.. It's so exhilarating !

Agreed with rdm750
I decided to Google Cheb Mami and was distrubed by what I found out about him: "Cheb Mami, an Algerian singer, has been sentenced by a French court to five years in prison for abducting his former girlfriend and attempting to force her to have an abortion."
perfect voice
Love this song!
Great song!
Great song.
Sounds like it could have been on The Lion King.
I know of a video game mod that uses parts of this for a religion involving octipi...
Make of that what you will.
I LOVE THIS SONG!!!! It transports you to a completely different world. Amazing how Sting is able to do that in his music.
You know, I think I like Sting better than I thought.
I've never heard the full version, just the radio edit. Interesting.

I hated this song when it first came out, but somewhere along the line, I wound up loving it. I don't know how that happened.

This is one of my favorite songs from Sting.
It's a very sensual sexy ryhtmic song. Perfect

moment.

i love this song!!!! we have a belly dance routine to this. the performance is always awesome!!
I think Sting was a high priest in a past life!
This took me back to Dubai, where I had the most wonderful experiences with the people, the music and the culture. Sting has always brought it home for me.
Beautiful and dreamy. Melds the internationa l and pop--so Sting!
