Rock n Roll bloopers - Roxanne

“Roxanne” is unique for a different reason. The mysterious piano chord heard at 0:04 is an unusual, atonal cluster that has nothing to do with the rest of the song.

It turns out that Sting slunk back to relax on a nearby piano but didn’t realize the lid was up, so he unwittingly played that gloriously dissonant chord with his ass. This is the reason for his laugh at the 0:06 mark.
