Sting has successfully established himself as one of the most important singer-songwriters in Western popular music over the past twenty years. After analyzing Sting's musical output album by album and song by song, author Christopher Gable sums up Sting's accomplishments and places him on the continuum of influential singer-songwriters, showing how he differs and relates to other artists of the same period. Aside from his commercial success, Sting is also interesting for the use of recurring themes in his lyrics (such as family relationships, love, war, spirituality, and work) and for his use of jazz and world music to illustrate or work against the meaning of a song.

Because of the nature of the Praeger Singer-Songwriter Collection, I have focused on Wonder compositions that he. .Motown and Tamla have not been consistent with these listings for one reason or another.

Because of the nature of the Praeger Singer-Songwriter Collection, I have focused on Wonder compositions that he himself has recorded, and on particularly notable songs from each of his albums. Wonder began acting as his own lyricist more frequently from 1971 on; therefore, I will deal more extensively with the songs on the post-1970 albums than those on the Stevie Wonder recordings of the 1960s.

Sting has successfully established himself as one of the most important singer-songwriters in Western popular music over the past twenty years. His affinity for collaborative work and disparate musical styles has pushed his music into an astonishing array of contexts, but no matter what the style or who the collaborator, Sting's voice always remains distinct, and this fact has earned him success amongst a correspondingly broad audience. The Words and Music of Sting subdivides Sting's life and works into rough periods of creative activity and offers a fantastic opportunity to view Sting's many stylistic changes within a coherent general framework. After analyzing Sting's musical output album by album and song by song, author Christopher Gable sums up Sting's accomplishments and places him on the continuum of influential singer-songwriters, showing how he differs and relates to other artists of the same period.

Aside from his commercial success, Sting is also interesting for the use of recurring themes in his lyrics (such as family relationships, love, war, spirituality, and work) and for his use of jazz and world music to illustrate or work against the meaning of a song. Sting's life also sheds light on his music, as his working-class roots in Newcastle, England are never far removed from his international superstardom. Throughout his life, he has been musically open-minded and inquisitive, always seeking out new styles and often incorporating them into his compositions.

Reviews:
  • Rude
This book is an absolute must for anyone interested in the art and craft of songwriting.

The structure of the book is interesting and effective. The Introduction explains Sting's inclusion in the Praeger Singer-Songwriter Collection and describes Sting's recent CD of lute music as the logical musical evolution of a restless artist, risk-taker, and seeker. Each chapter covers an album, starting with the Police, on through Sting's solo career. The final chapter comes full-circle again with Sting's lute CD.

The pacing is brisk throughout. Dr. Gable does not get bogged down by analyzing every song, but wherever he lands he goes deep. The songs he chooses represent recurring song-writing motifs which can be easily identified in other songs. The explanations are not overly technical, but speak in terms of mood changes and chord modulations as they relate to the lyrics.

Dr. Gable's contribution to the literature on this fascinating and complex, dare I say, musical genius called Sting is essential reading, a book for the lay reader, with scholarly bona fides.
  • Quamar
This fine work will illuminate phrases (both lyrical and musical) within Sting's large body of work that you never noticed, or that you loved but couldn't figure out why. Dr. Gable traces the themes of family, love, dreams, and exploration and shows how Sting uses twists of phrase as well as harmonic, melodic and rythmic patterns to draw the listener into his state of mind. The book covers everything from early Police recordings through his latest works with orchestras and chant and will make you immediately put on your headphones and listen with newly enlightened ears, hearing things you never noticed or understood before.
