#np “Always On Your Side,” Sting and Sheryl Crow is a song the fabulous Ms Criw wrote during the end of her relationship with “I’m Land F****** Armstrong”[!] This song is one of the sweetest I’ve ever heard in the realm of, “man, I cannot believe I never heard this before!”
At a confident 70 beats per minute, this song sounds like a perfect Christmas I Love You song: to me! I have a feeling that may not have been Ms. Crow’s message but: she’d be happy I BUY all my music. Why? Not just because I’m a lawyer and losing a 26 year license over downloading “If It Makes You Happy”? Is that worth the risk? Heck no.
Second and with more import and truth: as a musician myself and a man who has a brother in law deep in the music industry: nothing comes free! The bad music now is a result of a generation of musicians who never got paid thus no good music was ever made, some say, me being one. Me TT told me when I was 17: “If you ever think about any kind of career in music NEVER steal. NEVER tape someone’s album’s (I’m old – It was 2 years before the 1st CD player) and not pay.
So love to you Sting and Sheryl. I think I bought his song for 4 friends. Apple knows!
Peace on earth, respect all things, treat yourself well
The end started with beauty. But don’t all romances?
