Top 10 Songs From The Police
The Contenders: Page 3
One of the most haunting and melancholic songs Police have ever made. Feels like waking up from a dream and having to face the cruel cold world. Nice simple minimalist composition.
Saxophones ended up a bit of a curse for the Police and unfortunately got them wrong sided with fans. O My God is one of these songs that belong to the Ghost of the Machine pop type. However, it ended up being overlooked. While this is later Police, it's a definitely powerful track and underrated as there s a lot going on here. Stings vocals are astounding reaching as high as he did on early punk days. Cope land as always kick you in the balls with his beats and Andy is stellar at doing therhythm section. Definitely a highlight on Synchronicity that uses world music influences to outstanding results with a lot more power than on Ghost. A misunderstood classic that went amiss in the later Police directory, due to 3 overbearing singles.
While in the veins of the punkish tones of Truth Hits Everybody from Outlandos, It's alright for you is a more subdued affair, but it still has a catchy chorus and showcases interesting use of guitars as atmosphere rather than raunchy energy, a trademark of Police's newfound sound in Regatta de Blanc.
With an instant synth hook, the catchiest song of Ghost remains the most brilliant song Police has ever made. Who would have thought guitar could have been replaced with synths to create an even better reggae sound, this time with a sophisticated neo classical feel. The instrumental section is gorgeous and eloquent. Lyrics are quite intellectual as well so all this makes it a very worthwhile piece to listen to. Why this is at 24 beats me though. Maybe it's too subdued for some. Acquired taste perhaps but anyone who knows music will feast on this gem.
How is this not higher?! For sure should be in the top 10!
