My All Time Favourite International Songs (10): “Desert Rose” by Sting & Cheb Mami (English/Arabic)

Desert Rose is very beautiful song for me. I just can’t stop listening to this song. The song is unique, because it is English and Arabic mix.

Desert Rose is a single by Sting from his album Brand New Day (1999). The song peaked at #3 in Switzerland, #4 Italy, #15 in the UK Sinles Chart and #17 in the US Billboard Hot 100.

The song is noted for Sting’s duet performance with Algerian rai singer Cheb Mami, creating a distinct world music feel to the song. It also has a popular music video featuring Sting taking a trip through the Mojave Desert in a Jaguar S-Type and then going to a nightclub in las Vegas, Nevada to perform the song with Cheb Mami.

The lyrics of the song are inspired by the Frank Herbert novel, Dune, of which Sting is a fan. Sting also played the villainous Feyd Rautha in the 1984 film adaptation. Both the book and the song feature the Arabic language, as well as imagery involving moisture and desert plantlife.
