- Possibly the ultimate site for everything Sting-related: interviews
and reviews taken from publications around the world, regular
news updates, as well as the expected lyrics, bibliographies,
tour history and so on. A fair bit of Police content as well.
etc. - All that Stingchronicity doesn't cover; the FAQ,
more lyrics than any other site, the annual Sting/Police survey
are just the highlights.
101 - Explores the historical, political, literary, and
mythological references that abound in Sting's music. The goal
is not to interpret the meaning of the songs, but instead to
present all the information that may be relevant to understanding
MIDI's - Clean, simple repository of MIDI versions of
Sting songs. Most major tracks from solo and Police albums
Burn For You - Many, many pictures of Sting. Picture quality
isn't always perfect, but pages download appreciably fast
for a graphics site.
Vu Quotes - Fairly long list of common themes and/or wordings
repeated in Sting songs (e.g. "It's a big enough umbrella...")
and The Bible - Lengthy discussion of the influence of
the Bible on Sting's work.
Mercury Rising - Listing of about 60 fan sites for Sting
and The Police.
Shadows in the Rain - Smaller webring of about 10 pages.
site: Compaq - Promoting the new album Brand New Day.
A fair amount of behind the scenes info and interviews; much
improved since the launch. Warning: the site is heavily Flashed,
and may break older machines.
Ugly Sting Page - A site devoted to Sting rarities - B-sides,
tracks on other people's albums, etc. Regularly updated downloads.
Us - The Dutch fan club site. Mainly interesting for its
growing collection of concert photos (some professionally
shot, some by fans) and reviews, although much of the content
can also be found on other sites.
by the numbers - A comprehensive collection of polls about
Sting - best or worst album, best or worst song. It also features
its own polls, and a poll of polls.
-- Sting - Good introduction to Sting, although slightly
inaccurate and out of date in places. Reviews, discography,
biography, and more.
and C's House of Sting - Mainly interesting for the comprehensive
pictures collection. Some sound clips that may be interesting
as an introduction to Sting's music
Reviews of Sting - A comprehensive collection of concert
reviews by Sting fans. Focuses mainly on the later albums
(Ten Summoner's Tales, Mercury Falling); fast and clean.
All Music Guide - Biography, discography, reviews, ratings.
One of the best of the commercial sites.
Sting - Includes album reviews, news, audio downloads,
biography, discography, links, and bulletin board.
of print - Nicely-designed site devoted to cataloguing
rare and promotional items, complete with photos. Mainly covers
Brand New Day, but should expand to the other albums in time.
Times: Sting interview - BBC journalist Andrew Duncan
interviews Sting. Mainly interesting for the Real Audio sound
Sting fan club - Worth checking out for the handful of
video clips; the rest of the site is humdrum, boring and easily
new day - Dedicated to Brand New Day, and more specifically
to Desert Rose, this is at times as much about Cheb Mami as
it is about Sting. Well-written biographies, but the rest
is mainly filler.
- Knowing she can get tickets to the Sting concert in Vancouver,
Felice R. Prager decides it is the perfect place for a family
