This is disambiguated only from Desert rose, which is not capitalized. Melchoir 08:38, 2 April 2006 (UTC)

Oppose - I'd suggest that Desert Rose remain a redirect to desert rose, but that desert rose be made into a disambig page with the current desert rose page moved to desert rose (mineral) or similar. People may very likely come to either capitalisation looking for any of the uses. - MPF 08:50, 2 April 2006 (UTC)
Eh, that's fine too. Melchoir 09:49, 2 April 2006 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Sting Desert Rose.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Sting Desert Rose.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Bad link?[edit]

English translation of Cheb Mami's Arabic lyrics - does not work properly, page opens, but error is shown. To check in future. Robert Kowalczyk (talk) 15:16, 8 June 2011 (UTC)

Dune "fan"[edit]

Sting a Dune fan? That sure could use a citation, but Sting definitely played a somewhat major role in one of the Dune feature films (which was probably made before that author was born) — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:28, 17 March 2014 (UTC)

"pre 9/11 interest"[edit]

What does that mean? That interest vanished post 9/11? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 09:08, 21 October 2016 (UTC)

Yes. See [1]. Michaelmalak (talk) 11:43, 21 October 2016 (UTC)

No information about song[edit]

This article contains virtually no information about the song itself (its music, lyrics, structure, composition, etc.) other than its duration and the fact that it has a "world music feel". AJD (talk) 03:26, 5 January 2017 (UTC)
