This song is pure nostalgia for me. Growing up in the eighties, this is one song that never seems to grow old on me. Morten Harket’s vocal range is just phenomenal, and there’s not many who can hit those notes in the chorus of the original song.
This particular version of the song is one I first heard used in the movie, Deadpool 2. I later found out it was recorded as part of an MTV unplugged concert. If you’re an A-HA fan and haven’t checked out that album, go find it on any of the streaming platforms. Amazing.
I’ve enjoying picking up my guitar again and playing songs I’ve not played in the past. I had a lot of fun learning this Sting song. It’s always resonated with me in a way, being a recent immigrant to the States myself.
Thanks to Dillon Partin for reaching out with the opportunity to collaborate! I hope we don’t wait as long again before we play another song together.
This song was part of series from Harmonic Music Studios in Washington, DC. They were collaborating with different musicians to publish a song each day. I think Dillon and Marshall played on almost every video!

This is one of my favorite Jon Foreman songs, and it’s based on words spoken by Amos, an old testament prophet. They are so applicable to today in many ways. You only have to skim over some “discussions” on social media platforms to see how distracted we have become with ourselves while ignoring the world’s injustices.
