Back in 1985, the world was involved in a Cold War with Russia. We were all afraid of them dropping the bomb. That year, Sting released a song called Russians as a plea that we would never get the thing that would end all wars.

That was then, and the Cold War finally ended. However, in the last week, Russia attacked Ukraine and is bringing us closer to that reality.

So, today he took the spider webs off of the tune he never thought would be relevant again and is singing it because, unfortunately, it is.

Sting is not only singing it because it is relevant again as he implores that Russia ends its unprovoked attack. He also wants to get the word out about a charity that is assisting displaced Ukrainians.

The singer is asking you to donate to Help Ukraine. He says, “The supplies shipped to this warehouse in Poland are delivered in coordination with the Armed Forces of Ukraine and are guaranteed to go to people most in need.”

Watch Sting exercise
November 22nd, 2021 under The Police. [ Comments: none ]

Sting shared a video of himself doing crunches. I am sorry, I meant doing a crunch.

Watching him do that is as exciting as one of his concerts. Yes, I have said and I meant it. I have seen him live three times, once with The Police, and each one was a bore.

See, I can be nice. I didn’t say that this video was as riveting as his latest album. Did I?

Alright, I will say something nice. Doing that crunch is helping the 70-year-old look younger than his years. He looks 69! Something I am sure he has done with his wife more than 69 times.

What is, Sting presented his own category on Jeopardy?

Sting is so special that he not only got his own category on Jeopardy, he also got to present it.

Too bad they didn’t give him tougher answers to give because I got all of those right. Do you know how rare that is?

How did you do?

We all know the melody to the Jeopardy Think Music. Now we can learn the lyrics that Sting wrote for the song.

Tonight the game show is going to debut his take on the catchy tune that gets stuck in your head. The lyrics are, “Of all the things in my CV, everything in life from A to Z, but how I wish my ma could see, here I am on Jeopardy!”

Are you singing along with him, or are you like can we have another star do it?

Reelz gets real about what got The Police to say I can stand losing you
May 3rd, 2020 under Reelz, The Police. [ Comments: none ]


The Police were one of the biggest bands of the early ’80s, but they never saw the ’90s as one. Tonight at 8p, Reelz follows their career from their start in 1977, the unbelievable rise to fame and what ultimately led to Breaking The Band.

Stewart Copeland was an established musician thanks to his brother Miles, who was one of the biggest managers of the time. The drummer was touring England when he met a school teacher named Sting. The two exchanged phone numbers and eventually formed the band with a third member.

That third member was not Andy Summers. He joined the band later on and The Police was born.

At first, they were worked well together, but then their egos got in the way. It got so bad they could not all be in the studio to record together. In fact, at one point Sting, buried one of Summers’ demos.

By the time their final album Synchronicity came out, the writing was on the primary color wall. Playing Shea Stadium should have been a happy time for the trio. Instead, it was the realization it was over. After a few more dates, they parted ways for 20 years.

Then they reunited for one more world tour, but the friction was still there.

Now, they each have their own careers, but nothing they will ever do will top what they did as The Police.

I thought I knew a lot about the band, but I learned a lot about them I didn’t know. It is amazing that three guys who made such beautiful music together did not have a beautiful relationship.
