I love this song and I always return to it. It’s a beautiful piece of music with a soothing melody, even a dreamlike quality that goes so well with Sting’s voice. It could be said that it is kind of melancholic, as goodbye messages ultimately are, but the melody makes it a positive song. It is a declaration of love, of wonderful times in the height of summer, but also a reminder that she remember him. In its essence it is a song about the eternal quality of life and love, of cycles coming and going, and of the way nothing can diminish these experiences, not even death.
Song of the week is:
Sting – Fields of Gold
