§ I Am Music and I Pick the Songs: Every Breath You Take

{Song #37 « Song #38 » Song #39}

§ ≡ One of an ongoing series of posts in which I pick, in my not-so-humble opinion, the best songs of the second millennium. Feel free to offer constructive dissenting opinions; preferably set to music.

Song #38 is Every Breath You Take, sung by The Police.

On his 15th birthday, my older son and his band were playing this song at their high school's pep rally on the school's football field. He didn't know I was there in the crowd listening. A couple of young girls standing near me were giggling about how cute he was. They didn't know I was his father, and I resisted the urge to tell them. That was 26 years ago.

  1. One of my sisters (who shall remain nameless, though I reckon you can guess which one) used to sing the chorus of this song to me whenever I gave her a "fake smile".
