I just finished reading Broken Music by Sting and I’ll share my review later for that. I’ve been a Police fan since I was a young child and Sting is still a favorite artist today. Here are two favorites that go way back to my childhood, back to when sitting in front of MTV was all I wanted to do. Not only are these favorite songs, but favorite music videos as well.

The Police

“Wrapped Around Your Finger”

Lyrics:

You consider me the young apprentice
Caught between the Scylla and Charybdis
Hypnotized by you if I should linger
Staring at the ring around your finger

I have only come here seeking knowledge
Things they would not teach me of in college
I can see the destiny you sold
Turned into a shining band of gold

I’ll be wrapped around your finger
I’ll be wrapped around your finger

Mephistopheles is not your name
I know what you’re up to just the same
I will listen hard to your tuition
And you will see it come to its fruition

I’ll be wrapped around your finger
I’ll be wrapped around your finger

Devil and the deep blue sea behind me
Vanish in the air, you’ll never find me
I will turn your face to alabaster
Then you’ll find your servant is your master

You’ll be wrapped around my finger
You’ll be wrapped around my finger
You’ll be wrapped around my finger
Yo Ohhh…


“Every Breath You Take”

Lyrics:

Every breath you take
Every move you make
Every bond you break
Every step you take
I’ll be watching you

Every single day
Every word you say
Every game you play
Every night you stay
I’ll be watching you

Oh, can’t you see
You belong to me
How my poor heart aches with every step you take

Every move you make
Every vow you break
Every smile you fake
Every claim you stake
I’ll be watching you

Since you’ve gone I’ve been lost without a trace
I dream at night I can only see your face
I look around but it’s you I can’t replace
I feel so cold and I long for your embrace
I keep crying baby, baby please

Oh, can’t you see
You belong to me
How my poor heart aches with every step you take

Every move you make
Every vow you break
Every smile you fake
Every claim you stake
I’ll be watching you

Every move you make
Every step you take
I’ll be watching you

I’ll be watching you

(Every breath you take
Every move you make
Every bond you break)

I’ll be watching you

(Every single day
Every word you say
Every game you play)

I’ll be watching you

(Every move you make
Every vow you break
Every smile you fake)

I’ll be watching you

(Every single day
Every word you say) Ooh
(Every claim you stake)

I’ll be watching you

    Even though “Everything She Does is Magic” and “Don’t Stand So Close to Me” are my favorite Police songs, Synchronicity’s an album I respect. Ah, the craze over it.

    So much talent in one place. I especially love when the singer carries the song with the instrumental backup as in the second video. If that makes sense. Great post!

    I saw them at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit in 1987. Wow, what a concert. I thought I still had the tank top I bought, but I can’t find it. 😦
