Stewart Copeland - Don't Box Me In

A&M -1983

This is some funky ass 80's rock, taken from the soundtrack to one of my top 10 80's movies, Rumble Fish*. The film was based on an S.E. Hinton novel and directed by Francis Ford Coppola, just like The Outsiders was, except Rumble Fish was way artier. The whole thing thing is in black and white, save for the titular Fish, and has amazing performances from some really great actors (Matt Dillon, Mickey Rourke, Dennis Hopper, Nicolas Cage, Diane Lane and even Tom Waits!) One of the coolest things about the movie is a full soundtrack by Stewart Copeland (in the tail end of The Police era.) This track is the only one that has vocals on it. The awesome thing about that, is that the vocals, and harmonica parts, are by Stanard Ridgeway of Wall Of Voodoo fame. Feel the vibe.

*sorry, the only trailer I could find was the Spanish one.
