Giant steps are what you take Walking on the moon I hope my legs don't break Walking on the moon We could walk forever Walking on the moon We could live together Walking on, walking on the moon
Walking back from your house Walking on the moon Walking back from your house Walking on the moon Feet they hardly touch the ground Walking on the moon My feet don't hardly make no sound Walking on, walking on the moon
Some may say I'm wishing my days away No way And if it's the price I pay Some say Tomorrow's another day You stay I may as well play
Giant steps are what you take Walking on the moon I hope my legs don't break Walking on the moon We could walk forever Walking on the moon We could be together Walking on, walking on the moon
Some may say I'm wishing my days away No way And if it's the price I pay Some say Tomorrow's another day You stay I may as well play Keep it up, keep it up
Seventhmist from 7th HeavenSting wrote numerous great songs over the decades. This wasn't one of them.
Chase Holden from Costa Mesa, Ca UsaMy friend pointed out how this song bears a striking resemblance to Gil Scott-Heron's jazz poem "Whitey on the Moon." Reference: http://www.theatlantic.com/technology/archive/2011/05/gil-scott-herons-poem-whitey-on-the-moon/239622/
Esskayess from Dallas, TxWorst Police song of all. I always skip it on my Police collection.
Jahbra from 19126, PaSting and Jerry Garcia performed a medley of songs Sting wrote during the 93' Dead tour. Sting was the opener. I believe that this was the only time it ever happened. Beautiful! Jerry rocked and still does!
Steve from Great Wakering, United Kingdomwhen Andy summers was in zoot money's band they had a pschedelic anthem with 'Madman running through the fields'.He said it featured a ringing 11th chord over the hi hat in the middle, & it was to rise again to great triumph as the intro to 'walking on the moon'.In his excellent book 'One Train Later' he describes it as a big shining d minor 11th chord that acts as a fanfare to the 'get under your skin melody'. He also speaks about being at cape Canaveral to film the video for the single. In 'The police',a visual documentary by Miles, Andy's Nasa pass is stamped as expiring on October 23rd,1979. He remembers looking at the rockets & spaceships from the 1960s and how it reminded him of Dan Dare and the mekon, and journey into space. On march 25th,26th 1980 The police were playing in Bombay. Andy recalls the band being in the tearom at the Taj Mahal continental & playing sitar,tamboura & tablas 'coming up with a warped version of walking on the moon' ! Steve, Great Wakering
Thegripester from Wellington, New ZealandIn an interview, Sting said that there came a moment when he knew that the Police had made it as band. He was awoken in his hotel room by the window-washer who was whistling "Walking On The Moon" outside as he did his work, completely unaware that Sting was inside listening.
Mark from London, EnglandAs the song began its inevtiable descent down the UK charts from number one, the record company, A&M, tried to halt its decline by reissuing it as a 12" disc, one of the earliest, with no extras. It didn't work...
The third verse of "Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm" by Crash Test Dummies ("they shook and lurched all over the church floor...") was inspired by girl whose parents would speak in tongues at their Pentecostal service.
