The afternoon has gently passed me by
The evening spreads its sail against the sky
Waiting for tomorrow
Just another day
Zapping this yesterday goodbye

Bring on the night
I couldn't spend another hour of daylight
Bring on the night
I couldn't stand another hour of daylight

The future is but a question mark
Hangs above my head there in the dark
Can't see for the brightness
Is staring me blind
Zapping this yesterday goodbye

Bring on the night
I couldn't spend another hour of daylight
Bring on the night
I couldn't stand another hour of daylight

Synchronicity has an era feel that is not my favorite, but as a whole I totally agree. Every time this or other early stuff on I look at the ratings and thing "man, this is just a little better than most of the other stuff I've rated a 10".

Recently read Stewart Copeland's autobiography ("Strange Things Happen").  It was an easy read, and fun, but completely self-absorbed.  That made me re-evaluate everyone's opinion that Sting is an egotistical asshole.  

If he is, then it's quite likely there were at least two egotistical assholes in the Police.
 I couldn't stand another 60 seconds of Sting singing he couldn't stand another hour of daylight. Wanna buy some lyrics?

He always takes up two spaces when he parks his car at the supermarket and he was notorious for not rewinding his video tapes when returning them to the shop.

So...perhaps not the Most Interesting Man in the World. {#Whipit}
Police music just doesn't "keep" for me. I don't think it's bad just not a sound that moves me.

Does it.. sting?
Thank the Muses for all the new music that descended into the parched wasteland of music that was the 70's. New Wave, Punk... and the world was saved from the 60's.

I've always preferred The Police to Sting's solo stuff. For me, it's edgier, grittier and way cooler!

Sting gets a lot of stick, particularly from the Brits. Can someone explain to me why?  He doesn't seem so obviously up his own posterior like many other big names out there, and he is unquestionably a really talented musician. What's the problem people have with him?

Always love the beginning of this track - so cool and funky.  Classic tune!

I just don't understand why adult men want to sound like Minnie Mouse--and I especially don't understand why so many people respond positively to that.  

 


I couldn't stand another hour of this kind of singing...

...this few minutes is just about enough.

I saw Sting several times in the 1990's with different musician lineups each time. The musicians were all highly talented and obviously having a very good time. Great shows.

"...a few good tunes sprinkled in with mediocrity."

That describes most of the albums ever produced. 

  Ha ha, one hopes.
