When The World Is Running Down

I’m not the biggest Police or Sting connoisseur but of all of their songs that I do know & love this is by far my favorite. Second place goes to “Voices Inside My Head” (although I prefer the deeper dub disco version by Common Sense). Anyway, this song really speaks loud as much now as it did 30 years ago. Excellent songwriting, arrangement, and production. If I knew how to make music I’d attempt to cover this, and probably fail! hahaha…seriously though, there are certain songs that always sound better by the original artist. Maybe that’s why you haven’t heard a successful cover of this? I think The Roots could pull it off in a way that makes sense. Perhaps U2 and possibly even Prince & NPG but it would be really tough to top the Police.
