Sting gets a lot of stick, particularly from the Brits. Can someone explain to me why?  He doesn't seem so obviously up his own posterior like many other big names out there, and he is unquestionably a really talented musician. What's the problem people have with him?

I usually don't like mixes, but the one of this song mixed with Peter Gabriel's "In Your Eyes" is really incredible.  (I guess it helps a lot that I like both songs on their own.)  Check it out on YouTube.

The grammar discussion on the BoDeans song is a never-ending source of amusement.

 dwhayslett wrote:

Um, that's only a 'fix' if you don't mind changing the meaning of the lyrics, however subtly.  In that case, you could substitute anything that satisfies a desire for grammatical purity.  "Don't pass my bee."  "Here in the sea."  "Geese in a v."  "Free free free free."

The lyrics are just fine as they are, IMO.
 




But this comment about the song itself is pretty awesome.

This song means a lot to me.

I met an Aussie girl in Tahoe when we were both working at a ski resort. When she went home I drove her down to SFO to catch her flight home. KFOG played this song when I was pulling out of the parking garage. I just lost it. We really liked each other and I didn't think I'd ever see her again - she was on a plane to Sydney and I was 23 years-old. What were the chances? This song just totally captured how I felt about her - it struck every nerve.

We've been married now for 10 years and have a little girl.

I'm 16 years old, it's 1982. I'm working the midnight shift at Shell Gas in North Vancouver. The quirky guy on shift before me leaves a tape in the grubby player. Tells me I'm welcome to listen. I press play and hear the Nebraska album all in one go. Just me and the urban nightscape.... I felt like I'd been hit by a ghost by the time I'd listened to both sides. I give this song a 10 when it's played in the context of the entire album.
