Stars Uncharted prides itself on mostly featuring incredible artists hardly anyone has heard of. But sometimes you gotta take off your virtual hat when legendary artists release incredible new songs/albums. Today’s feature is about three of the best artists of all time: David Bowie, Paul Mccartney and Sting. After all of these years they’re still releasing songs that put to shame all the wannabes and the imitators. Check out these mind-blowing songs from their new albums:

Valentine’s Day / David Bowie

Lyrics

Valentine told me who’s to go
Feelings he treasured most of all
The teachers and the football stars
It’s in his tiny face
It’s in his scrawny hands
Valentine sold his soul
He’s got something to say
It’s Valentine’s day
The rhythm of the crowd
Benny and Judy down
Valentine sees it all
He’s got something to say
It’s Valentine’s day

Valentine told me how he feels
If all the world were under his heels
Or stumbling through the mall
It’s in his tiny face
It’s in his scrawny hands
Valentine Knows it all
He’s got something to say
It’s Valentine’s day

Valentine, Valentine
Valentine, Valentine
It’s in his scrawny hands
It’s in his icy heart
It’s happening today
Valentine, Valentine
It’s in his scrawny hands
It’s in his icy heart
It’s happening today
Valentine, Valentine

Lyrics
(OK)

I want someone to come home to, I need somewhere I can sleep.
I need a place where I can rest my weary bones and have a conversation not too deep.

Everybody else busy doin’ better than me.
But I can see why it is, they got someone settin’ them free.
Someone breakin’ the chains, someone letting them be.

I want someone who can save me
when I come home from the zoo.
I need somebody who’s a sweet communicator,
(who) I can give my alligator to.

Everybody seems to know what they are talking about.
And I can see why it is,
they got someone breakin’ ‘em out.
Someone findin’ the key.
Someone settin’ them free.

Could you be that person for me?
Would you feel right settin’ me free?
Could you dare to find my key?

I want someone who can bail me
when I get up to my tricks.
I need somebody used to dealing with a sinner,
whenever I get in a fix.

Everybody else busy doin’ better than me.
And I can see why it is, they got someone settin’ them free.
Someone breakin’ the chains, someone lettin’ them be.

Could you be that person for me?
Would you feel right settin’ me free?
Could you dare to find my key?

Practical Arrangement / Sting
