Ok, the music thing seems popular, and coincidentally it’s come up again, this time with a completely different friend. I mentioned in passing that I was going through some Police music, and just didn’t find it that interesting to my taste. Conjures up memories of hanging out at the pizza place in the mall during high school, but nothing really special about it. “I’m a bit surprised to hear you say that,” he says. “Some of his [Sting’s] Police stuff has good lyrics for a literary snob like yourself.” We both agreed that Sting’s solo work is full of such things (such as an entire album entitled “Nothing Like The Sun”, from Sonnet 130). But the Police as a group were also sneaking in literature references? Somebody enlighten me. What have I missed? UPDATE: Janefan found this article that pretty much tackles this very topic. Sting’s apparently just a bit too smart for some of us. Thanks Jane!
