2Message In a Bottle
I'm not a "The Police" fan, but this song is very, very good. And I'm not talking about lyrics (But lyrics are good, too). It's music. It's great. I heard this song in the "Guitar Hero", a game on PSP. Also, one of my favourite movies is "Castaway". I think you know what I'm talking about.
my favourite police song, it's so awesome


This is a no brainer for me as this is my favourite song of all time, from the very first time I heard it on the radio as a teenager catchy with deep lyrics. LOVE CAN MEND YOUR LIFE BUT LOVE CAN BREAK YOUR HEART!

I think that "Every Breath You Take" is number one, but I am voting for "Roxanne" because it has to be higher than this! It is such a The Police type of song. When you think of The Police, you think of "Roxanne. "
Such a wonderful song, full of soul in it, way better than every little thing she does is magic... Should be number 2 next to every breath you take


Roxanne is a great song and has a lot of meaning to it. In my opinion Roxanne is better than Every breath you take because everyone recognises Every breath you take. I think that is the reason Roxanne is 3rd below Message in a bottle is the fact is is less recognisable than the two above.

4Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic
One of the few songs around which can mix cheerful tunes with some meaningful lyrics... The end part of the song is just awesome but come to think about it the whole song is fantastic
This is one of these songs that perfectly explains your situation and the music is so awesome
Best written of the Police songs...

6So Lonely
This is the song you'd probably hear in Jamaica or Mauritius or Goa... Its like those beach-side songs...
I love this song cause I was brought up in a coastal region and so this song naturally becomes your #1! Do listen to it once...
And try not to mind the lead singers pitch :P
This is there best song then message in a bottle and roxxane
This song should be rated higher


The first police song I heard nad probably my favourite

7King of Pain
This is one of best songs from The Police, love the lyrics and the melody. Great song!
Extremely good song by a great band! In my opinion this is the police at their best. Amazing, dynamic, and relatable song. "That's my soul up there" love!
Personal favourite. Unbelievably catchy. The Police are excellent!

8Can't Stand Losing You
One of their best songs for sure, it must be in the top 3. And for those who don't now Sting wrote it in just 5 minutes!
The lyrics are so accurate, you can tell that its a great song, probably one of the greatest one ever written at least on "that" topic.
And your brother's gonna kill me and he's six feet ten.

9Walking on the Moon
Its so smooth, makes you relax, the soft notes goes with the beat and makes everything more quiet: 'i'm wishing my days away'
By far their best song. So quiet. It makes me feel like I really was on the moon. Stewart Copeland is just incredible!
Even though I had to "struggle" while deciding, I think this song deserves to be on top!

10Do Do Do Do, De Da De Da

You can heare the guitar is awesome

The Contenders

11Synchronicity 2
Why is this song down below at 19? This song is gold!

It pretty much sums up life as it is in the 80's, and really, it's probably the best song of the 80's
Awesome melody and guitar riff
This song deserve to be the first one

16Invisible Sun
This is my favourite Police Song by far, probably the only person in the world who thinks it, moody, atmospheric. I just love the synth line, the tom-tom, guitar all sound fantastic. Great video too. Quite eerie though, not surprising the subject matter, but that aside will always be favourite, you can keep your Every Breath You Take laugh out loud.
Reminds me of the Beatles' "Rain". Thick, dense music that successfully colors the lyrics.


Such a good song the opening start to this song is really good. the video for this song was banned by the BBC (UK) becuase the video was about the troubles

Great reggae song... Great sentiment... I've quoted it a couple of times, sometimes sincerely.

26Reggatta De Blanc
This song is way too good to be this low people. Listen to it. It's incredible. Especially the drums. This song proves better than probably any other song by the police just how instrumentally talented the members of the band were.

27I Burn for You
A forgotten one from "Brimstone and treacle" OST. Excellent Sting writing and band alchemy: Andy's guitar synths and textures, Stewart's African rythms, Sting's electric double-bass and haunting voice. The Police at its very best.
