This Cowboy Song

Sting

02 If You Love Somebody Set Them Free (Brothers In Rhythm Edit)
03 If You Love Somebody Set Them Free (Brothers In Rhythm Mix)
04 Demolition Man (Soulpower Edit)

“This Cowboy Song” was penned by Sting for inclusion on his 1994 best of collection, “Fields Of Gold.” The original version is hardly an essential addition to Mr. Sumner’s discography; however, the reggae remix (featuring Pato Banton) on the single release is downright embarrassing. But let’s be honest—the single’s selling point is an epic rework of “If You Love Somebody Set Them Free” by Steve Anderson & Dave Seaman.
