Songs from The Police - They don’t make songs like these anymore…

I don’t know why I stopped, after being so fanatical about THE POLICE in my teen years … perhaps I was attracted by the glossy “New Romantics”, or the mysterious sounds of “synths”, over the magical reggae rock and woking class glam of the trio … funny though, as I’d remember my “last tune” was “Every Breath You Take” - which I adored, but when Puff Daddy “adopted it”, I lost all sense of pride and sentimental worth for it hahaha … aaahhhh late-youth angst, I suppose…

Decades later, I am grateful for youtube, for me to be able to pull this list (where my “Best Of” CD has since lost amidst the sea of compact discs at home…
