The Police – The Artist
The Police were an English rock band formed in London in 1977. For most of their history the line-up consisted of primary songwriter Sting (lead vocals, bass guitar), Andy Summers (guitar), and Stewart Copeland (drums, percussion). The Police became globally popular in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Emerging in the British new wave scene, they played a style of rock influenced by punk, reggae, and jazz. The Police disbanded in 1986 upon which they embarked on solo careers. The band have sold over 75 million records, making them one of the world’s best-selling artists of all time.
Don’t Stand So Close To Me – The Song
‘Don’t Stand So Close To Me’ is a hit song by the British rock band the Police, released in September 1980 as the lead single from their third album Zenyatta Mondatta. It was written by the lead singer of the Police, Sting. Lyrically the song concerns a schoolgirl’s crush on her teacher which leads to an affair, which in turn is discovered. Before joining The Police, Sting had previously worked as an English teacher. This song has a new meaning as the world practices ‘Social Distancing’ in a bid to halt the spread of the Coronavirus (Covid-19). Social distancing, or physical distancing, is a set of non-pharmaceutical interventions or measures taken to prevent the spread of a contagious disease by maintaining a physical distance between people and reducing the number of times people come into close contact with each other. It involves keeping a distance of six feet or two meters from others and avoiding gathering together in large groups.
