Sting told us that the process of songwriting today means far more than it did during his '80s hitmaking heyday: ["When I was younger and writing music, everything I did seemed to be commercial. I seemed to have my finger on the pulse and so it was easy. As I get older, I, I feel I don't have my finger on that commercial pulse — but, at the same time, I think the music means more to my soul. I make music because it's its own reward. So, it's nice to have a hit record. It's nice to get royalties and all of that stuff, but music feeds my soul and it does so increasingly."] SOUNDCUE (:27 OC: . . . does so increasingly)

Sting kicks off his eight show "My Songs" Las Vegas residency on October 29th.
