Feel its Massive Sting

This week will focus on the ongoing theme with stories on the foundation of love, more specifically pertaining to two great songs with contrasting takes on the subject; Paradise Circus by Massive Attack and A Thousand Years by Sting. One seems to take a very hopeful stance on renewing their bond with another, expressing their immense passion, while the other takes a much more cynical disposition towards the ever-coveted feeling, likening it to a self-destructive force we’re bound to collide with.

As well as displaying the similarities and differences between the two, there will also be a critical look at each song’s lyrics to get a better understanding of these musical artists and their styles.

Until then, think of some of your favorite songs that might deal with the nature of love and comment.
