I have mentioned in various forums that this song was a big influence on me on my “Unnatural” album. That was mainly because the drums are amazingly well done–and for a long time I couldn’t even figure out how they were being played. Anyhow, there is a moment of metaphorical, poetical genius in this song that makes me wish I could one time reach such a profound level of connectivity with my words, without leaving the metaphor as when Sting says:
“Woke up this morning // Can’t believe what I saw // Hundred billion bottles // Washed up on the shore”
This line is perfect, simply put. It just amazes me how that particular line tells me so many things without telling me any of them.
(This was written a long time ago, but I thought I would port it to this blog)
