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

Though I've tried before to tell her
Of the feelings I have for her in my heart
Every time that I come near her
I just lose my nerve as I've done from the start

Every little thing she does is magic
Everything she doe just turns me on
Even though my life before was tragic
Now I know my love for her goes on

Do I have to tell the story
Of a thousand rainy days since we first met?
It's a big enough umbrella
But it's always me that ends up getting wet

Every little thing she does is magic
Everything she do just turns me on
Even though my life before was tragic
Now I know my love for her goes on

I resolved to call her up
A thousand times a day
Ask her if she'll marry me
In some old fashioned way

But my silent fears have gripped me
Long before I reach the phone
Long before my tongue has tripped me
Must I always be alone

Every little thing she does is magic
Everything she do just turns me on
Even though my life before was tragic
Now I know my love for her goes on

Every little thing she does is magic
Everything she do just turns me on
Even though my life before was tragic
Now I know my love for her goes on

Every little thing, every little thing
Every little thing, every little thing
Every little, every little, every little
Every little thing she does

Every little thing she does
Every little thing she does
Every little thing she does
Thing she does is magic

Every little thing, every little thing
Every little thing she do is magic
Magic, magic, magic, magic, magic

Do I have to tell the story
Of a thousand rainy days since we first met?
It's a big enough umbrella
But it's always me that ends up getting wet
