Locked Out of Heaven by Bruno Mars
You can call me an old man, but I do recognize The Police when I hear it. This song (Locked Out of Heaven) by Bruno Mars has a number of chords that sound pretty much like “Don’t Stand So Close To Me” by The Police. I didn’t know who sang it or what the name was, but Dr. Matthew Hayday told me the name via Twitter (thanks, Matt!). For your listening pleasure (and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do).
And yes, as indicated on the Wikipedia entry, it does have the vibe of The Romantics’ Talking in Your Sleep. I can’t find anything Roxanne-ish (as the entry says) but I definitely can see Talking In Your Sleep, and The Police’s Don’t Stand So Close To Me. Awesome song nonetheless.
