This must be Sting

“This must be Sting.”
“But it isn’t.”
“Sure it is!”
“Don’t think so”
“Nobody else has such a voice. Just listen!”

Sitting in the car, listening to the radio and arguing about the artist’s identity … Are we the only couple doing this? We had to wait until the radio dj gave us the final answer:

“That was Two Sisters a song by Fiction Plane with singer Joe Sumner, son of Gordon Sumner, better known as Sting!”

“So I was right! - Sort of.”
“No you weren’t right. - Sort of.”

Listen to this song here and judge for yourself!

But tonight both Sting and his son (pic left) will be very nervous. They will be performing in the Amsterdam Arena and somewhere in the crowd Lydia and I will compare their voices and appearances and I'm sure both of us will have a great time. After the support act (Fiction Plane) we will be arrested by the Police! But we are not nervous at all, because we are playing a home game. And I hope we will also hear this fantastic song:

Joe really does sound like his dad. I had no idea. Thanks Paul.

Brother, I invited you last year to come with me to Bospop (www.bospop.nl) but you didn't come...
Sting was there with the same support act, and just like you I felt that the lead singer of Fiction Plane performed in a shameless imitation of Sting. Until I discoverd the connection...

Jet Fiction Plane has it's own repertoire and their music doesn't sound like The Police or Sting's music at all - it's just this lead singer...
