Britse band die eind jaren 70 en begin jaren 80 enorm populair is. Met Sting (bijnaam van Gordon Sumner) als leadzanger, gitarist Andy Summers en drummer Stewart Copeland hebben de 3 mannen in 1979 hun eerste twee hitjes: So Lonely (dat tot nummer 31 reikt) en Roxanne (dat tien plaatsen hoger eindigt). In datzelfde jaar breken ze goed door met Can't Stand Losing You (dat nummer 9 bereikt), gevolgd door Message In A Bottle (dat zelfs piekt op nummer 2). De vijfde Police-hit, Walking On The Moon, inmiddels aan het eind van dat jaar verschenen, haalt vervolgens begin 1980 de top 10 door twee weken op 9 te verblijven.

1980 is een rustig Police-jaar met de nummer 3-hit Don't Stand So Close To Me. Ook verschijnt De Do Do Do De Da Da Da aan het eind van dat jaar. Dat nummer blijft vlak na de jaarwisseling steken op nummer 11 in de Top 40.

In 1981 scoort de band de langverwachte nummer 1-hit met Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic. Ook de singles Spirits In The Material World (1982) en Every Breath You Take (1983) worden top 10-hits: beide behalen de zesde plaats. In dat laatste jaar bereikt Wrapped Around Your Finger de 17e plaats.



In 1985 gaat Sting solo en een jaar later heeft The Police hun laatste hit. In 2007 komt de band eenmalig bij elkaar voor een reünie.

Songtekst

I've called you so many times today
And I guess it's all true what your girlfriends say
That you don't ever want to see me again
And your brother's going to kill me, and he's six feet ten
I guess you'd call it cowardice but I'm not prepared to go on like this

I can't, I can't, I can't stand losing, I can't, I can't, I can't stand losing
I can't, I can't, I can't, I can't stand losing you, I can't stand losing you
I can't stand losing you, I can't stand losing you

I see you've sent my letters back
And my LP records, and they're all scratched
I can't see the point in another day when nobody listens to a word I say
You can call it lack of confidence
But to carry on living doesn't make no sense

I can't, I can't, I can't stand losing, I can't, I can't, I can't stand losing
I can't, I can't, I can't stand losing, I can't, I can't, I can't stand losing
I can't, I can't, I can't stand losing, I can't, I can't, I can't stand losing

I guess this is our last goodbye and you don't care, so I won't cry
But you'll be sorry when I'm dead and all this guilt will be on your head
I guess you'd call it suicide but I'm too full to swallow my pride

I can't, I can't, I can't stand losing, I can't, I can't, I can't stand losing
I can't, I can't, I can't stand losing, I can't, I can't, I can't stand losing
I can't, I can't, I can't stand losing, I can't, I can't, I can't stand losing
I can't, I can't, I can't stand losing, I can't, I can't, I can't stand losing
I can't, I can't, I can't stand losing, I can't, I can't, I can't stand losing
I can't, I can't, I can't stand losing, I can't, I can't, I can't stand losing
I can't, I can't, I can't stand, can't stand losing you
