    I don't know what everyone's been smoking, this is by far the better version of this song. The original version makes my ears bleed.

    I always liked this one better than the original. It's much more scenic and haunting. Sacrilege, I know.

    this version was created by Copeland and Sting in 1986,amid some seriously in studio fist fights, for their "The Singles" - the release of which effectively marked the end of The Police as a band. This version is no better or worse than the original, but the history behind it as the LAST song Copeland and Sting were about to put together in the 80s. It is an interesting remix because (1) they fought over every measure and (2) it was the nail in the coffin of Copeland/Sting collaboration.
