Lesser-Known Sting

Two of the more lesser-known singles from former Police chief Sting are "Mad About You" and "Why Should I Cry for You", both taken off his mortality and aquatic-themed 1991 album "The Soul Cages". The arabesque atmospherics of "Mad About You" provide an appropriate musical backdrop to the song's take on the David and Bethseba parable, while the lost-love lamentation "Why Should I Cry for You" is presented in an evocative, windswept sea-shanty form.

Watch the "Casablanca"-influenced video clip for "Mad About You" here, and the nautical-influenced promo for "Why Should I Cry for You" is here.
