The Police

Is there any other 80’s group that compares. There music is phenominal!

Frank Zappa and Rush.

That’s about it. Although Frank wasn’t really an “80’s band”, per se.

I’m old enough to have been a VERY big fan back when The Police were on top. Three guys where the chemistry made 1 + 1 +1 = about 5.

Saw them in Memphis in Feb '84.

I saw them in New Orleans last year on their Reunion tour. Phenomenal.

They’ll always be one of my all time favourites.

I always did love their music. It’s one of the bands I grew up listening to.

I thought this was a thread about the cops. lol

JB - So did I!

I’m glad it’s not though - The Police are awesome.

I always make sure I have a good selection of their tracks on my car MP3 player.

The 80’s, if you were there, you’d never want to go back.
The Police were good though.

This isn’t the Police, it is just Sting, but this is one of my favorite live performances.

I sincerely hope the poster’s sake it was a joke.

And I agree with LUEshi, Rush owns the Police in every way possible.

Metallica

There are few rock bands that can say their music makes them unique, they are one that can!

Roxanne, was an instant classic!

I think the Eurythmics were also one of those bands but from the eighties!

I love them beyong words

Sting is an amazing lyricist

I can listen to them all day, day after day after day

for 80’s I am also a huge Boingo fan
Elfman is a god

I like English Man in New York and Murder by Numbers.

It’s Probably Me

If the night turned cold
And the stars looked down
And you hug yourself
On the cold cold ground
You wake the morning
In a strangers coat
No-one would you see
You ask yourself, whod watch for me?
My only friend, who could it be?
Its hard to say it
I hate to say it
But its probably me

When your bellys empty
And the hungers so real
And youre too proud to beg
And too dumb to steal
You search the city
For your only friend
No-one would you see
You ask yourself, who could it be?
A solitary voice to speak out and set me free
I hate to say it
I hate to say it
But its probably me

Youre not the easiest person I ever got to know
And its hard for us both to let our feelings show
Some would say
I should let you go your way
Youll only make me cry
If theres one guy, just one guy
Whod lay down his life for you and die
Its hard to say it
I hate to say it
But its probably me

When the worlds gone crazy, and it makes no sense
And theres only one voice that comes to your defence
And the jurys out
And your eyes search the room
And one friendly face is all you need to see
If theres one guy, just one guy
Whod lay down his life for you and die
Its hard to say it
I hate to say it
But its probably me

I hate to say it
I hate to say
But its probably me
I hate to say it
I hate to say
But its probably me
I hate to say it
I hate to say
But its probably me

Watch the documentary of the Dream of the Blue turtles tour; there is an incredable version of “I burn for you” on it; it made Omar Hakim one of my favorite drummers.
