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.

Sting, The Roots and Jimmy Fallon sing Don’t Stand So Close To Me with at home instruments
April 10th, 2020 under Jimmy Fallon, The Police. [ Comments: none ]


Yesterday on The Tonight Show, Sting sang one of The Police’s biggest hits with Jimmy Fallon and The Roots. Instead of using regular instruments, they all used ones you can find at home to perform Don’t Stand So Close to Me.

I am sure their intention was to get the message out about not standing so close to other people. There is only one problem; the song is about a teacher trying to avoid an affair with one of his underage students. That is why the tune starts off with, “Young teacher, the subject of schoolgirl fantasy. She wants him so badly…”

That also explains why they used instruments found at home and not classroom ones like they usually do. That would be wrong on so many levels.

Now, let’s talk about the instruments; my favorite one was Connect Four. To see what else they used, then click here!

Sting reveals if there is a real Roxanne
December 6th, 2019 under The Police. [ Comments: none ]


Sting released an album with reimagined versions of his greatest hits with The Police and solo work called My Songs, and he talked about the meaning behind some of them.

We probably would not be talking about Sting nor The Police had it not been for their first hit Roxanne about a prostitute working the red light district in Paris. The singer revealed he wrote the tune in 1977 while staying in a “very cheap hotel” in the City of Love.

He describes Roxanne as “a romantic song in a not very romantic setting.” Was there a real romance behind those lyrics? He reveals, “I am very grateful for Roxanne. Who I invented.” Then he added, “She changed my life.”

If he was staying in a “very cheap hotel”, then he probably could not have afforded Roxanne. Now, he could afford several Roxannes thanks to Roxanne.
