I’m a fan of Sting. I’m not his biggest fan, I’ll admit, but I’m a pretty big fan. Some people, when it comes to Sting, get their nickers all up in a twist whenever he departs from his usual musical ways and attempts something new. This, on the other hand, is exactly why I’m a fan of Sting.
A couple of years back, Sting made a “winter” album. Some songs have to do with Christmas; others have simply to do with the season. It’s a wonderful album, and one I highly recommend you add to your collection.
For this edition of “I’m a fan Fridays” I thought I’d share one of my favorite songs from this album called, “Soul Cake.” If you listen closely, you can hear a wonderful weaving in of a another favorite Christmas melody. This piece is a lot of fun. I dare you not to dance while listening to it!
Here’s a live version with Sting and a brilliant group of musicians absolutely killing it! Enjoy!
