The Police: Every Breath You Take

Square

I know everyone calls this the stalker’s anthem, but I think it is a good tune and performance.

It was written by Gordon Sumner, aka Sting, for the 1983 Police album Synchronicity. It reached No 1 in the States and the UK. It is No 84 on Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

Sumner himself saw it as a song about obsession. There is an interesting Wikipedia entry here. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Every_Breath_You_Take#Weekly_charts
