Stewart Copeland and Stan Ridgway - Don't Box Me In

When Francis Ford Coppola turned S. E. Hinton's novel Rumble Fish into a movie in 1983, he needed help with the soundtrack that he initially tried to make himself. He enlisted Stewart Copeland, the brilliant Police drummer, and soon enough realized his own limitations and left the work to what he rightly considered a superior composer and musician. Copeland went on to score the film, but collaborated with former Wall Of Voodoo singer Stan Ridgway on the song "Don't Box Me In" that became a minor hit. It's a great song and a meeting of two highly original, adventerous and exciting musicians, a song filled with an eerie atmosphere that complements Coppola's beautiful black and white images.
