Title: Desert Rose by Sting
Genre: Sting.. he's a genre unto himself
Comments: I might talk on and on about this song if you get me started. For the main reason that this song was a song I listened to extensively when I was deployed to Qatar after 9/11. (That and the Final Fantasy LWG songs). This song just fit my mind set at the time, and the exotic location helped quite a bit.. I could see it everywhere that I moved. The shifting sands underneath a scorching sky, the smell of incense. It was surreal. Also this is a song that I associate with Sigurd Harcourt and Citan Uzuki. Because Sigurd is a desert rose, and Citan is a calm meadow.. they constantly dream of each other.. even if they can never -truly- meet. (/sentimental sap). Also, it's just a kickass song, full of arabian imagery, bells, music.. it's very atmospheric.
Notable Lyrics: | This desert flower.. no sweet perfume ever tortured me more then this. / See Desert rose, this memory of Eden haunts us all.. / This desert flower.. this rare perfume.. it's the sweet intoxication of the fall |
