    Song MeaningSting wrote this song for his second child, Fuchsia Katherine, called Fuchsia Kate and Kate. The instrumental appeared on the original CD single for “All This Time”, released in 1991. It was also performed live by Sting on Chicago Session 1991

    Fuchsia is a vivid reddish or pinkish purple color named after the flower of the fuchsia plant, itself named after the German scientist Leonhart Fuchs. Fuchsia is a synonym for magenta. Fuchsia is often misspelled as Fuschia. Sting and his first wife Frances named Fuchsia after the fictional character Fuchsia Groan, the daughter of Sepulchrave, in Mervyn Peake's novels Titus Groan (1946) and Gormenghast (1950); novels favored by Sting. Fuchsia is a dreamer and a romantic, who escapes the dull pace of life in Gormenghast by reading fantasy tales. Over the course of the novels, Fuchsia falls in love with Steerpike. She is attracted by his swashbuckling persona and by the fact that he is different from anyone else she has ever met.

    General CommentSuch a lovely little instrumental, it would be nice to showcase I Miss You Kate on a CD. Just a little creative daydreaming. These might be cool songs in the lineup, recorded again for a fresh sound but not so changed that they lose their original excitement. Critics would probably grumble and say, no new material, huh? As they usually do, but who cares?


    I Miss You Kate
    Little Wing
    Synchronicity I
    Seven Days
    Walking On the Moon
    Tea in the Sahara
    Voices inside My Head
    Sister Moon
    Spirits in the Material World
    Mad About You
    Saint Augustine in Hell
    Fortress around Your Heart
    Driven to Tears
    St. Agnes and the Burning Train
    When the World is Falling Down (You Make the Best of What’s Still Around)
    Heavy Cloud No Rain
    La Belle Dame sans Regrets
    Lithium Sunset
    If You There
    A Thousand Years
    If I Ever Lose My Faith in You

    General CommentA little trivia: At around 1:30, that bit was used as an interlude in Saint Augustine In Hell; also by Sting.
