Sting and The Roots re-imagine 'Don't Stand So Close To Me' on the Tonight Show...

April 09, 2020

Sting made an appearance on Thursday's Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, where together with Fallon and house band the Roots he performed 'Don't Stand So Close To Me' with the band using whatever instruments thay had to hand. The subsequent version that included guitars and bass accompanied by melodica, forks, shoes, scissors and a connect 4 board may be one of the more unlikely versions you'll ever hear. Watch the performance here.

Close To Me
Loved it! You have been my #1 singer for close to 40 years now. I never miss your St. Louis concerts. Your music always makes me feel better, especially during times like now. Never stop! Love, Tina
