Song: Lithium Sunset
Favorite Lyric: I’ve been scattered, I’ve been shattered
I’ve been knocked out of the race but I’ll get better.
Significance: When I was in college preparing to write my senior thesis on Paul Simon, I found out that my theory teacher was writing her master’s thesis on Sting. I thought that was…like…really weird. I understand though, there’s a lot of quality there. I’m not a big enough fan for even a term paper, but I like a handful of The Police standards. I came across this song watching a Sting concert on PBS. Just happened to be listening and happened to love it.
