Roxanne - Arizona Zervas

The ExperienceAll she wanna do is party all night... Never gonna love me but it's alright... She's out of control but he doesn't care. He got what he wants.
The Vibe: Content.
The Topic: Party life.
The Value: Pleasure.
The Tension: All she wanna do is party (No depth and no love) VS. It's alright... (But he doesn't want love, just fun).

Music video: Still waiting.

The Meaning of Roxanne: The title echoes the 1978 hit of the same name by The Police. In turn, The Police's song references the 1897 play Cyrano de Bergerac by the French playwright Edmund Rostand. In the play, Roxanne is the beautiful and intelligent object of Cyrano's love. But Cyrano doesn't believe himself worthy. In the 1978 song written by Sting, Roxanne is a prostitute he falls in love with and wants to save from her profession. But in Arizona Zervas' version, Roxanne is a party girl he doesn't bother trying to change. He just rolls with it. An ideal becomes redemption becomes... an accessory. It's the unfortunate third installment of Roxanne in art and music.

Ask yourself: Do you see the people in your life as people to be cherished and protected or as accessories to be used?
