Jimmy Fallon knows that when he gets a great singer as a guest on "The Tonight Show," he needs to use them to their full potential. So when Sting sat down Thursday night, Fallon had him sing — a ring tone.
Always game, Sting was completely up to the task. The pair warmed up a bit first by getting Sting to do falsetto scat versions of classic instrumental ringtones (re-dubbed "Stingtones").
And then came the big finale! A young man was picked randomly from the audience to have Sting record a personal voice mail message on his phone. Using the Police's 1979 hit "Message in a Bottle" for a tune, he reworked the lyrics on the spot: "Sorry I'm away / Looks like you missed me, yo! / You just leave your name when you hear the beep, oh! / I hope that you will leave a / I hope that you will leave a message on my voice mail, yeah."
