Sting wrote this classic and co-produced it with the other member of The Police. “Roxanne” can be found on the band’s “Outlandos d’Amour” album. In April of 1978, “Roxanne” became the first of three singles the album spawned.
This working girl inspired song went down history as one of the greatest songs ever created. For example, on Rolling Stone‘s 2010 updated list of the “500 Greatest Songs of All Time”, it was placed at the 388th position.
“Roxanne” gave The Police a top-40 hit in more than six countries. Among the aforementioned countries include U.K., New Zealand and the U.S.A. In UK, it peaked at position 12 on their official singles charts. In New Zealand, it reached 8 whereas in the United States, it reached a modest positon of 32.

On their return, The Lounge Society are trying to break free of any pre-prescribed post punk band tags. ‘Burn The Heather’ has a rhythm that runs along on light percussion and understated bass lines. Cultivating atmosphere aplenty, the song injects sudden moments of momentum to create frustration-shaking, danceable sequences.
