Backgrounder


This considered collection trawls the movie soundtracks of the past twenty years and gathers together, in one place, some outstanding tracks. Ignore the fact the album is billed as "Sting At The Movies", and the album contains four Police songs - at least one of which was co-written with Andy Summers ('Murder By Numbers'). Instead, let's look at the songs themselves. Hits such as 'De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da' and 'Englishman In New York' sit very comfortably alongside the smoky, atmospheric songs from Leaving Las Vegas', 'Angel Eyes' and 'My One And Only Love', and Sabrina's' 'Moonlight' Sting's voice is made for such tracks, and it's a shame that 'It's A Lonesome Old Town' couldn't make it through to the final tracklist, perhaps at the expense of the rather syrupy, but number one hit 'All For Love'. The stand out cut - like it is on any album it graces - is 'I Burn For You.' This song, which pre-dates the Police, positively drips with passion and remember, this is a song that was tucked away on the "Brimstone & Treacle" soundtrack ostensibly because Stewart & Andy thought it too sentimental and "night-clubby" for a Police album!
