One World Not Three is a fantastic study in pushing and pulling the beat. I think the main weapon here is playing the snare ahead to create what he once described as a teenaged anksty urgency. The way he leads into the "up" sections with tom phrases gives it a cool over-the-barline feel. It's a great song to study to wrap your head around the Stewart Copeland world.

For textbook Copeland, I reach for Miss Gradenko and Man In A Suitcase, which has a beat that seems to convey a lot of humor for some reason.

I've always loved how in "Miss Gradenko" the bass drum always accenuates "the one", even when it isn't playing "the one"... kind of a Copeland thing imo, framing the one without always playing it with the bass.
