Don't box me in - Stewart Copeland and Stanard Ridgway

While the world was waiting for a new album by The Police, the members of the group went their own way to do solo projects. Sting recorded a solo single, and drummer Stewart Copeland recorded the soundtrack for the movie 'Rumblefish', which was directed, produced and co-written by Francis Ford Coppola.

As Coppola started to work on the soundtrack of the movie, he envisioned a mainly percussive soundtrack to symbolize the idea of time running out. He asked Copeland to improvise a rhythm track. Coppola soon realized that Copeland was a far superior composer and let him take over. The song 'Don't Box Me In' was a collaboration between Copeland and singer/songwriter Stan Ridgway, leader and frontman of the band Wall of Voodoo.
