I bet he made more money on that song than you will make in the sum of you life time. You "Idiot Moron"

James Sel: Apparently you are quite the fan of Sting. Thanks for proving my point.

jarhead: I don't think much of the song, but I'm not going to insult his fans are all idiots just because I'm not impressed by the song. It's not a horrible song, just mediocre. It probably wouldn't have been a hit except for it was done by someone who was already famous and it was promoted by a big company. A lot of songs are like that, but that doesn't make the people who like the songs idiots... well at least not most of the time! LOL

DESERT ROSE by STING: The song isn't all that great and I think CactusHugger is correct about why the song was fairly successful. James Sel seems to be suggesting that just because a song makes a lot of money that it must be pretty good. I can think of a lot of songs that were really popular and that most likely made lots of money that were pretty crumby songs. I wouldn't go so far as to suggest that fans of songs like that are all idiots and morons, but I think sometimes people like whatever gets popular and don't really think enough for themselves. At least jarhead has enough integrity and self-respect to decide for himself what he likes and dislikes.

The Desert
What I like about this song is that it rings authentic. A few minutes ago I posted under the "Most Annoying Celebrities" in the "Recreation and Entertainment" section of this board a video rant called "The Truth About Popular Music." I much prefer a short, amateur song to something fake and over-produced, but that's just me...
Great hike through a section of the Argus Range Wilderness (Inyo County, California). It's a nice little eight mile loop beginning at the north end of Searles Valley and dropping down into Water Canyon which drains into Panamint Valley. I saw a couple donkeys along the way, lots of wildflowers, and plenty of relaxing solitude. The Argus Range Wilderness is administered by the BLM (Bureau of Land Management).

shadylady: That's the way I feel too. I don't like over-produced pop music all that much. There's something much more authentic about songs written by amateurs. They're less contrived. They flow from the interests of the amateur writer rather than from an intentional desire on the part of someone under contract to manipulate the audience.

This is different from the previous video by the same name. It must have been put together using clips left out of the first one.
