The Police: Every Breath You Take

Thirty years ago this summer, in 1983, we travelled from Arborfield, Saskatchewan to England to spend a few weeks with my family there. When we left Canada, ‘Every Breath You Take’ was at Number One in the Billboard charts. When we returned, it was still at Number One. It spent eight weeks in all at Number One, and was one of the most instantly recognizable songs on the radio that summer. It is probably still the best known song the Police ever recorded.
