The Police are my second favorite band !

Going back to the topic of how bad some of their videos are, has anyone ever seen Syncronicity II? Holy crap, that video is hilariously bad!

For the most part I don't care for Sting's solowork though there are a few songs that I absolutely love such as Fields of Gold and Fortress Around Your Heart.

Here are my top 10 in no particular order, though they might be different on some other day:
Wrapped Around Your Finger
Syncronicity II
Does Everyone Stare
Spirits in the Material World
Darkness (written by stewart copeland, so no knocking his song writing abililites !!)
Can't Stand Losing You
King of Pain
OmegaMan (written by Andy )
When the World is Running Down You blah blah.....

Holy crap, I thought you were dead ILLM. I'm so disappointed.
Take that. TAKE THAT!1!




Yeah, Police were good. These days I wish Sting would play more bass and keep his mouth shut.

Well well well........


The police were my first band that I really liked, I think. Back when I didn't know what the radio was, or anything. I just heard music when I was little.


Favorite Police Song......


Hmm............


always liked Syncronicity II

Dee Doo Doo Doo ... was always nice, different.
Everylittle thing she does is magic was sort of nice, too.


But I will always think of Roxanne when I think of the Police.
Great drums, everything.

"ROOOOOOOOOOOOXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXANNE.... you don't have to wear that dress tonight...."

Where's "Murder By Numbers"? That wasn't too much of a hit was it? It's got a solid pop chorus structure going on, but I don't remember it being a hit. Probably due to its real snazzy, almost jazzy feel.

It was a B-Side on the Every Breath You Take Single ... that is why I didn't include it in my list ... but, definitely another GREAT song !!
