“Fields of Gold” is a song written and recorded by Sting.
It first appeared on his 1993 album Ten Summoner’s Tales. The song was released as a single but only made it to number 16 on the UK Singles Chart and to number 23 in the United States Billboard Hot 100.
However, it became one of Sting’s most famous songs, with many renowned artists covering the song.
In Lyrics By Sting, the singer described the view from his 16th-century Wiltshire manor house:
“In England, our house is surrounded by barley fields, and in the summer it’s fascinating to watch the wind moving over the shimmering surface, like waves on an ocean of gold.
There’s something inherently sexy about the sight, something primal, as if the wind were making love to the barley. Lovers have made promises here, I’m sure, their bonds strengthened by the comforting cycle of the seasons.”
“If someone is assaulted or experiences trauma, there is science and scientific proof, it’s biology, that people change.
The brain changes. And literally what it does is it takes the trauma and it puts it in a box, and it files it away and shuts it so that we can survive the pain,” Gaga said emphatically.
“It also does a lot of other things, it can cause body pains, baseline elevations in anxiety, it can cause complete avoidance of wanting to even remember or think about what happened to you,” she continued.
‘Til It Happens to You” is a song produced and performed by American singer Lady Gaga. She co-wrote the song with Diane Warren for the 2015 documentary film The Hunting Ground, which deals with campus rape in the United States.
A portion of the proceeds from retail sales was donated to organizations supporting victims of sexual assault.

Janet needs no introduction. She’s known worldwide of the Jacksons’ family fame.
Daddy Yankee needs no intro in the world of reggaeton.
Ramón Luis Ayala Rodríguez (born February 3, 1977), known by his stage name Daddy Yankee, is a Puerto Rican singer, songwriter, rapper, actor, and record producer. Ayala was born in Río Piedras, Puerto Rico, and was raised in the neighborhood of Villa Kennedy Housing Projects.
Daddy Yankee is the artist who coined the word Reggaeton in 1994 to describe the new music genre that was emerging from Puerto Rico.
Janet Jackson and Daddy Yankee performed “Made for Now,” their new collaboration, for the very first time on television Friday night (Aug. 18). The pair took their own advice and moved their bodies with the upbeat song on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

Never in a million years could we have dreamed up a collab between Janet Jackson and Daddy Yankee, but alas, it’s 2018 and anything is possible in a post-Despacito universe. After they were spotted filming the video last month in New York, the reggaeton icon and pop titan have finally unleashed “Made for Now,” which finds the pair floating through the streets of Brooklyn with a troupe of international dancers from Ghana, Nigeria, Grenada, and Trinidad.
As we previously reported, the production of “Made for Now” harnesses Afrobeats’ global pop explosion, and dancers are dressed in bold, colorful prints. The Big Boss hops in towards the end of the track to drop off some posi vibes and underscore the song’s message of celebrating the present moment.
Jackson and Yankee worked on the music video with famed director Dave Meyers, who has collaborated with Missy Elliott, Britney Spears, Kendrick Lamar, and more. The two legends are set to perform the new song together on The Tonight Show on Friday.
