Quotations and trivia

Sting hated this song. He even took the tape and buried it in a garden. Andy Summers was forced to play bass and guitar on the song.

In 1982-09 Guitar Player Andy remembers how he composed the song:

"I worked out the melody on an organ. It might have come out of my playing to a drum box: I got this machine that was set to bossa nova plus rock one and tango rhythms. I wrote that tune in Ireland about three months before we recorded the album."
