Watching ‘Leon: The Professional’ for the second time last night, the film ends on a stunning high with Sting’s Shape Of My Heart, a hauntingly powerful ballad that has a dark and beautiful soul. Firstly, the film is excellent so do watch it. Secondly the song is like a dream, with Sting’s soft vocals gently lulling you romantically into its tale of love and despair. The songs acoustic guitar is a brilliant testament to true musical prowess as it holds the song in its delicate grasp from the very first beat to its last. I remember this song primarily from car journeys with my family as a child when I was probably a bit too young and naive to actually understand this songs brilliance, however, I’m glad to say at the tender age of 20, I truly get it now.
