Moon Over Bourbon Street/Sting

Something creepy's going on in this song from Sting’s first solo album The Dream of the Blue Turtles (1985), and it all seems familiar somehow: the New Orleans setting; the narrator who "was trapped in this life like an innocent lamb" and can only come out at night; his conflicted feelings about the young girl he has his eye on. . . The clincher is in the CD's liner notes: "'Moon over Bourbon Street' was inspired by Interview With the Vampire by Anne Rice."
