    I love the Police too (and Billy Joel has some good songs). It's hard to say because they're kinda new wave and classic rock at the same time. Some other 80s bands that remind me of them:

    the Cars


    Billy Idol

    Tom Petty


    U2 (certain songs)


    Hall & Oates

    "Let's Dance" by Billy Joel (my fave song he does, also kinda new wave rock)

    Also Maroon 5's last cd (It wont be soon before long) reminds me ALOT of the Police, especially the song "Not Falling Apart".

    - She's Always A Woman

    - Piano Man

    - You May Be Right

    - A Matter Of Trust

    - The Downeaster 'Alexa'

    - The River Of Dreams

    - All About Soul

    - She's Got A Way

    - Just The Way You Are

    - Say Goodbye To Hollywood

    - An Innocent Man

    - Keeping The Faith

    The Police:

    - Wrapped Around Your Finger

    - Fields Of Gold

    - Roxanne

    - If I Ever Lose My Faith In You
