Mike From Greenville, Sc from Greenville, ScLook for a video of Robert Downey Jr. singing Driven To Tears live with Sting. RD Jr. does a commendable rendition.
Barbara from U.s.a.I consider this song to be one of Sting's best. I love the beat and the lyrics are timeless. I was living in a country that had crushing poverty and I always listened to this song and think of the things I saw while living in this country. Riveting is the best word I can use.
Dave from Lawrenceville, NjI've been listening to Zenyatta Mondatta alot recently, and it strikes me how relevant many of the songs have remained. Sure, Driven To Tears in in your face - it's not exactly like Sting is obscuring his lyrics - but as media coverage becomes more and more pervasive more and more atrocities are made public. Considering my comfortable existence, I'm as much a hypocrite as Sting was (and is). It's a paradox that you can make a difference on a small scale, but you can't really change anything.
John from Wilmington, NcThat bonehead Mark Goodman of MTV said the same thing about adding the line "too many cameras..."
Tommy from Flanders, NjIn an interview during Live Aid in 1985, Ben Orr from the Cars incorrectly stated that Sting added the line "Too many cameras and not enough food" just for Live Aid. The fact is it was recorded that way on the album.
Pepper from Virginia Beach, Vafantastic drumming by Copeland!!!
Paulo from New York, NyPearl Jam plays this one live occassionally. It can be found on a couple of their Bootleg CDs.
It really was so easy for Linda Ronstadt to score a hit with her Buddy Holly cover of "It's So Easy." She would sometimes change the lyric to: "It's so easy to have a hit, all you have to do is recycle it."
