An Accidental Start to the Song Roxanne

At the beginning of the song Roxanne by The Police, one can hear an atonal piano chord and laughter (reportedly that of the singer Sting). These sounds were totally accidental - during the recording session Sting thought the keyboard cover was closed and sat down on it, resulting in that dissonant chord and ensuing laughter.

Afterwards, the group integrated these sounds into the track as the piano chord meshed with that of the guitar.
