Question Can't Stand Losing You

B-side "Dead End Job"..
Two music videos exist for the song.. One features the group playing the song on a stage with Sting wearing huge glasses..The original single was banned by the BBC because of the controversial cover..As Sting described: "The reason they [the BBC] had a problem with "Can't Stand Losing You" was because the photo on the cover of the single had Stewart standing on a block of ice with a noose around his neck, waiting for the ice to melt" Released 14 August 1978..
