I don't think I even need to mention whom this copies.

I don't think he's even trying to hide it. I got nine seconds in.

This could have been a b-side on a record by The Police.

I don't either. I think the song's marketability was predicted because of the immediacy of its source-artist-conjuring. Basically I'm just in a cynical mood and wanted to make a thread.

Or an a-side.

It came on the radio while I was in the car with my dad a few days ago and right away he was like "Who is this ripping off The Police?"

But you weren't supposed to tell people whom this copies. We were all supposed to nod smugly to ourselves.

I thought it was them until I realized I was on a top-40 channel. Mars should be arrested, amirite?

I mean, at the same time, I'm impressed. He nailed it. Haha.

What could he have called this song that would be a not-very-sly nod to that band. "I Unironically Like David Lynch's Dune"?

It's true. Even the tuning of the cod-reggae guitar lines.

For all we know that could actually be a bass line from a Police song. Besides the guitar, the bass line was a dead giveaway.
