The Police-tour and compilation CD


This sponsored post is written by Jade.

The Police are back with a new Worldwide Tour and a Compilation police cd made of their classic hit songs. One of my personal favorites is "Every Breath You Take." Since I can remember I've heard The Police on my parents radio and they've become a permanent favorite of mine. Even if you don't know who The Police were, I'm sure you've heard of their most famous band member, Sting. Their music has been an influence on many contemporary artists of today.

It's hard to really compare any original artists to The Police's work. I've found their sound to come off as a pop, rock-and-roll, almost "reggae" mix. Their influence has stretched as far out to today's Fall Out Boy, who remade another one of my favorites, "Roxanne." Their rendition is very closely made to the original.

The Police's songs are reused and heard over and over again, their talent and unique quality is unable to be reproduced or replaced, and so, they will always be seen as a favorite of mine and many. The new police cd contains many old favorites and I'm sure you will probably recognize some of them even if you didn't know about The Police.


Every breath you take
And every move you make
Every bond you break, every step you take
I'll be watching you

Every single day
And 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"
Written By Sting
Released 1983 "Synchronicity"

I love the Police, it's one of the reasons why I'm going to Milan cause I heard that they were one of the groups that would be playing for a free concert there on June 23rd, but unfortunately they backed out due to their US tour :-(
Guess I'll have to buys the CD instead...

Love that song. Didn't know it was by the Police but, admittedly, I'm not really familiar with the band but I know Sting because he is famous. Maybe its time to expand my musical collections.

hi sis, that's too bad, Police is not going to be at the concert. I'm sure it will still be a blast though.

Hi bill, I know, there are so many songs on the CD list that I've always listened to and liked, but never realized they were of the Police!
