The Police “Zenyatta Mondatta”
How great is this piece of music? It’s really hard to pick a favorite from that early Police period, but I’m going with this one.
Highlights, we got a few. ‘Don’t Stand So Close to Me, When the World Is Running Down, You Make the Best of What’s Still Around, Canary in a Coalmine, Man in a Suitcase’ and my fave mainly because of Andy Summers scorching guitar solo, ‘Driven To Tears.’
This 1980 release peeked at #5 in 1981. It hit the charts again in 1983 and had a cup of coffee at #129.
It won two Grammy Awards.
Here’s a great live version of ‘Driven To Tears’ from the great movie, ‘Urgh, A Musical War.’
