The Police

Such a special song, those opening Gm F6 Gm Dm7 chords, the bass line, a little laugh and then that unearthly high vocal.  The Police took the UK and then the world by storm.

Outlandos d’Amour the debut album by the police was released in 1978 and it was brand new when I heard it, I was right up to date by the age of 12 and not playing catch up with what was to become known as New Wave.  The first two albums by the Police were rock classics and we used to listen to them until the tape was so fucked and got all jammed up in the recorder.  Then it was the big issue of winding it all back in with a pencil and hoping that the song wasn’t too graunched and still listenable.
