I'm So Happy I Can't Stop Crying

Either truly revelatory or downright cringeworthy, depending on your viewpoint, Sting's 1996 country and western experiment "I'm So Happy I Can't Stop Crying" is nonetheless a solid pop song with a hummable melody. Even though it might lack the formidable qualities of earlier standards like "Fortress Around Your Heart" or "Englishman in New York", it still possesses a certain curious cachet that sets it apart from the identikit corporate-rock numbers that were all the rage back in that era. Check out the loopy video clip here, complete with translucent cattle, alien cowboys and a most peculiar Sting haircut.
