I have invented a new game.
As I am sure you know, I reject Gordon Sumner "and all his works and all his empty promises."
I am sure we all have our least favourite stanza from his oeuvre, but what really pushed me over the edge was:
Don't think me unkind
Words are hard to find
They're only cheques I've left unsigned
From the banks of chaos in my mind
With the best will in the world, what the friggin' hell is that supposed to mean? "Sting, where is thy death?" forces its way irresistibly to mind.
Here is the challenge. Name a song you genuinely love, but you would hate if he had written it.
I will open the betting with George and Ira Gershwin's 1920's classic:
You should care for me
'S awfully nice
'S what I love to see
You've made my life so glamorous
You can't blame me for feeling amorous
Genius, yet if written by Sting ...... RUBBISH!
