Abstract

This paper will provide an overview of Sting’s interface with protest song from the perspective of his live performance and recorded output. It considers the relationship between what actually defines his protest songs, the creative strategies he employs when framing them, and the resonances they have with specific parts of the world. The paper will also consider the inherent tensions between protest song and factors such as the entertainment industry, star presence, and the criticisms that come with being in the public eye.
