Bourbon Street is a reference to the main drag in the French Quarter of New Orleans, Louisiana. While it's also a major tourist attraction, that attraction is due mainly to the street being tiled solid with bars, strip clubs, and general seedy business. The area was one of the few parts of New Orleans unscathed by Hurricane Katrina. This is one of six singles released from the album The Dream of the Blue Turtles. With this new ensemble, Sting was able to create songs he couldn't do with The Police, which was a three-piece. Moon over Bourbon Street" is a great example of how he put these seasoned jazz musicians to work. Sting played the double bass on this track. The album name comes from a dream Sting had.
Looking back over my shoulder I can see that look in your eye Turning my heart over and over I never wanted to say goodbye. I don't mind everybody laughing But it's enough to make a grown man cry Cos I can feel you slipping through my fingers I don't even know the reason why. Every day it's a losing battle Just to smile and hold my head up high Could it be that we belong together Baby won't you give me one more try One more try. Looking back over my shoulder I can see that look in your eye I never dreamed it could be over I never wanted to say goodbye . It’s a sort of foolish song really, but it seems to connect with the crowd. What made them decide to do that whistling section? Mike Rutherford revealed that this wasn’t planned
There's a New Moon Over My Shoulder" is a 1944 song written by Jimmie Davis, Ekko Whelan, and Lee Blastic and made popular by Tex Ritter. The song was the B-side to Tex Ritter's, "I'm Wastin' My Tears on You". There's a New Moon Over My Shoulder" peaked at number two on the Folk Juke Box charts. In 1945 Jimmie Davis recorded his version which made it to number one for one week on the Folk Juke Box charts and spent a total of eighteen weeks on the chart.
There's a moon over bourbon street tonight I see faces as they pass beneath the pale lamplight I've no choice but to follow that call The bright lights the people and the moon and all I pray everyday to be strong For I know what I do must be wrong Oh you'll never see my shade or hear the sound. of my feet While there's a moon over bourbon street. I use this song in my class with "I am Aquainted with the Night" by Robert Frost, which has a line in it "I have stood still and stopped the sound of feet" and has a very eerie sound to it if you have just listened to "Moon over Bourbon Street". Sting was an English teacher and I'd like to think he may have had this poem in mind as well, when he wrote the song, as the images are very similiar, and the poem is standard fair for English classes.
