You knew I meant the last Maxwell, right?

Hey, it's her birthday month. And this is for y'all's birthdays. All of them. (Thanks to Mr. Sumner for this song.)

Well, these last two were great. The matrimony one was an eh? But i loved this one. Not sure I see the connection to birthdays, but i was feeling no pain.

Teresa: Ms Cassandra pretty much owns any song she decides to sing, whether she wrote it or not. Sting's beautiful version of his own song begins to fade...

"Matrimony" was just pure fun groove, my kind of fun, but "Everwanting" blew open the same way Urban Hang blew open twelve years ago. I was like, where was I to have missed this?

You know Sting wrote this after John Lennon was murdered. I listened to this song for years without knowing that bit of info. Changes how I hear it now.

Anon: I did not know that either. Thank you for putting its spin into the song.

Oh! When the song started I thought: man, I hope it's the Sting song. And it was. Cassandra and her amazing voice. :)

DM: Right on both counts: beautiful song, amazing voice. Have you heard Sting's duet of the song with Julio Iglesias from years back? I've never been a fan of JI, but there's a fragility in his voice that was perfect for the song. I'm sure it's YouTube-able.

Feliz Natal, minha amiga.
