2. This is my favorite song by The Police

In the summer of 1985, I was soon going to start my senior year of high school and my older brother, Rich, had just finished his first year of college. Neither of us had a summer job so we spent a lot of time going to the movies--it was actually an inexpensive thing to do back then, especially since we could go to the local USO and buy discounted movie passes for $1.35(!) each.

Rich was a huge fan of The Police and their music was the soundtrack to that summer. He was killed in a car accident in January, 1989, and this song is the one I think of when I think of him and that summer when we just hung out together, goofing off and having fun.

Thanks for posting this, MrScorpio.

3. Supposedly that song was about Gary Gilmore wanting to be executed...? Something like that...

Anyway, here's another Police tune:


'Reggatta de Blanc' is a great fucking record. Probably their best along with 'Ghost in the Machine.'
