“August Winds” – The Last Ship

Music and Lyrics: Sting

The Last Ship did not last long on Broadway, but one should not discount it for that fact.  Take this lovely song, for example.  Apparently theatregoers were not swayed by this musical about the diminishing shipbuilding industry in a small town in England, even though it was written by Sting.  Just as the august winds offer a respite from the summer heat and a hint at what’s to come, if this beautiful song is a hint at what’s to come from the distinguished musician, then we ought to be on the lookout.
