But for those of you who prefer earlier Sting and are sick of “Roxanne” and “Message In A Bottle,” here are some oddball clips. Enjoy:
“Fallout,” The Police. The single that started it all.
“I Burn For You.” From Bring On the Night. Hang in until the end for Omar Hakim’s thunderous drumming.
“When the World is Running Down, You Make the Best of What’s Still Around,” The Police. From The Police Around the World. I could do without the banana hammock, but I love the live footage.
“Shadows in the Rain,” The Police. Another one from The Police Around the World.
“Tutti Frutti/Need Your Love So Bad,” from the Party Party soundtrack.
Sting Battles Jake “The Snake” Roberts. Get him, Sting! Hit him with your lute! Go tantric on his ass!
Do you have a favorite Sting deep cut? I’m listening.
