Quotations and trivia

from L'Historia Bandido: Stewart Copeland mentioned that this Sting song was called Love Is In My Heart earlier. But Stewart changed it to Three O'Clock Shit for the sake of the setlist. The Police didn't have any credibility anyway...

The track listing on the CD Strontium 90: Police Academy lists this as Three O'Clock Shot.

Alternate and cover versions

  • A studio version of this song recorded during the Outlandos d'Amour sessions was erased on Miles Copeland's request.
