Everybody stares? Not anymore, Stewart



Stewart Copeland's newly completed documentary of The Police back in the late 70s and early 80s will debut at the Sundance Film Festival later this month. The drummer of the legendary Brit rock trio shot " Everybody Stares: The Police Inside Out" largely himself using an 8mm camera. According to early reviews, the movie features about 60 songs (did they even HAVE that many songs?) and shows off the humor and daily life of the band as they were ascending the throne of the pop music world.

But like my cheesy moustache in high school, the band couldn't survive the 80s and broke up in 1985. Isn't it time those three just shake hands, hug it out and tour the world again? How much would you pony up to see them live? I might even have to break my long-standing blockade of concerts.

That being said, I'm still going to offer you the list of...
5) De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da: Doo-Doo is right.
4) Don't Stand So Close To Me: Maybe fun the first thousand times it was played.
3) Invisible Sun: Like wearing a velour shirt -- just a bad idea from the start.
2) Roxanne: In hell, this is performed in Eddie Murphy style during karaoke nightly.
1) Every Breath You Take: As overrated as Bill O'Reilly and Star Jones-Reynolds combined. Nice visual, huh?
