Message in a Bottle wasn't easy to arrange. The original recording by The Police is so pure and simple that it felt wrong to add anything. As a result this arrangement starts out as a loungy bossa nova and works it's way all the way up to a pulsing rock groove only to end in a juicy salsa groove.
This arrangement requires a female vocalist and features an electric guitar solo and tenor sax on the out-vamp.
