The Police - Every breath you take
Yes this song is massive but has anyone really listened to the words of this song? I really like this song but i am amused when i hear people refer to it as a love song. It isnt. This song is dark and frankly a little scary. It has a stalker vibe - "every step you take, every move you make, i'll be watching you".....Not romantic at all.
Sting wrote this song and has confirmed that it was written in the wake of his divorce so it reflects the murderous thoughts he had at the time....LOL
This song is monumental in 2 ways. I know that Rolling Stone magazine recognises this song as one of the top 500 songs of all time but then Biggy got killed, Diddy got sad and took the hook of this song to make a tribute single (I'll be missing you) that was a commercial success and still gets us moving today.
Diddy's version was so sweet with all the members of the Bad Boy label doing their thing on it. Then the video with the meadow and Biggy's son and then Diddy falling off the bike and his dance move with him all in black leather and swinging around. I can still do that move and yes i love Diddy (in fact i dated a guy that looked just like Diddy....subject of a post for another day).
Then during a memorable MTV Video Awards ceremony, Diddy and the gang all in white performed this song and suprise, suprise Sting is there doing his thing....Amazing...Still get goose pimples thinking about it.
Anyway, this song is simply amazing and of course Sting is one of my favorite artists and emm after watching the Oprah Show when he and his wife over-shared and let us know about their love for tantric sex - let's just say i think Sting rocks even more now...LOL
