Music: Roxanne

The history of the Police could be the script of a typical rock-and-roll drama: talented musicians get together, they rise to stardom with a hit song, the lead singer gets more famous than his fellows, the band members' ambitions and goals clash, and finally they break apart. Decades later, with all the members older and wiser, they reunite for one last tour. What song do they play? The one that brought them to prominence in the first place. In the Police's case, that's "Roxanne."

My sister said she was forced to listen to this song almost every time she went to work (it played over the in-store loudspeakers). As such, it's a perennial favorite whenever we play "Rock Band" (for me, not her):
