American Top 40 Flashback - "Every Breath You Take"
I can remember exactly where I was the first time I heard this song. I had borrowed my aunt's car, and was just pulling into her driveway when it came on. I couldn't quite place the artist, but I was mesmerized. I sat there listening until the song was over, chills running down my spine.
27 years later, the song can still do that to me. There's no doubt in my mind that it is one of the greatest songs in the history of rock and roll. Simple, but brilliant.
"Every Breath You Take," The Police. The #1 Song this week in 1983.
