This was easily the biggest song of 1983 #1 for three weeks in the U.S.
This classic from The Polices is probably one of the most misinterpreted songs of the 80’s , in fact I have personally played it as a request at a number of weddings.
Many think the classic pop chord progression and lyrics about an intense devotion is a very romantic song.
Songwriter Sting feels very differently as he says: “I think it’s a nasty little song, really rather evil. It’s about jealousy and surveillance and ownership.”
