Zenyatta Mondatta (spelled as Zenyattà Mondatta on the album cover artwork) is the third album by The Police, released in 1980. It features the two mega hit singles: “Don’t Stand So Close to Me” and “De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da”. It was their third and final album to bear a Foreign language title. The album won The Police two Grammy Awards including Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal for “Don’t Stand So Close to Me” and The Police’s second consecutive win for Best Rock Instrumental Performance for “Behind My Camel”. Although the album was well received, it is the only Police album not listed on Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. Read on...
