Music Project - Album #2: ...All This Time by Sting @ 17:28

  ....All this Time by Sting

   I think this must have been one of Clair's. You'll notice as this project goes on, that I have a lot of unusual unconnected music tastes. This is one of them. Personally I can't abide the bloke. Some of the Police songs are ok. But I've never liked Sting as an artist. If you were to ask me to delete some of my MP3s, I would probably delete this. But then sometimes there are moods where all you want is some Stingesque sounds.

If I lived in New York in an apartment overlooking the city in a re-purposed warehouse and it had been a sweltering hot day that had ended with a bit of rain.  I would probably swing open the massive windows, pop this on the old MP3 player of choice and listen to it. Perhaps with a nice glass of red wine and some cheese with them nice little crackers with the pepper sprinkles.


I'd probably then invite some dark female media type round. We would listen to it together over some rent-a-pasta dinner and chat shit about media and wankery before she either calls me a boring twat or takes me to the bedroom for some Olympic sports.

The album is a bit of a live affair. One of those live affairs where the artist takes over some gentleman's club (no billzy not the sort you frequent) and performs to the diners who hoot and coo in approval in an attempt to appear well cultured when in reality they are as cultured as three week old yogurt. It takes you through some of Sting's caterwaling before dipping into some Police classics and spitting you out the other side wanting to tipsily head off to bed with a dark sultry media type with big knockers.

Like I say, one for the fans. Or those in lofty rain soaked New York apartments.

I know I've heard the single All This Time by Sting, possibly many times. All I can ever remember though, is this whenever I hear the name.

Which is probably for the best, really.

I know exactly what you mean! (Incidentally, I performed that at the annual St Mary's Blackheath carol service about two or three years back). However I don't think the carol would go down well in a lofty New York apartment....

No, definitely not for the rainy NY night. I'm buggered if I'm going to go and listen to Sting to decide whether that's suitable, though.

I didn't rate that performance of that carol much, either - notes were fine, but the diction was awfully twee!

Ask FJ about the time she ruined my image of him for life, I can't look at the bloke in the same way again!

People who like Sting aren't scary. People in their late thirties who like Justin Bieber are scary. Especially when they're male.

Most of the albums I will listen to during this project are downloaded, I can't remember the last time I actually bought a CD.

I've heard this 'cos you've played this, but I like some of his stuff very very occasionally

So you don't want to hear any more of him until 2016?

I think I own the interestingly ethnic sounding Desert Rose single, but that is about as far as my knowledge of him goes.
However, if it is guaranteed to land me a dark sultry media type with big knockers, then perhaps I should bone up on his back catalogue!

I'm not a fan. I'm concerned that actually having a Sting album might do severe damage to my web and street cred. Though saying that, I know I do have his weird lute album.

Listening to Sting almost certainly guarantees the landing of dark sultry media types. But only if you live in New York. In a loft apartment. After it has been raining.
