The song by UK rock band ‘The Police’ came from their 1983 album Synchronicity. Written by Sting it was the biggest US and UK hit of 1983 and topped the UK Singles Chart for four weeks. It was nominated for three Grammy Awards, including Song of the Year, Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals, and Record of the Year, winning in the first two categories. For the song, Sting received the 1983 British Academy's Ivor Novello award for Best Song Musically and Lyrically.
The lyrics are the words of a possessive lover who is watching "every breath you take; every move you make". Sting has said he was disconcerted by how many people think the song is more positive than it is. He insists it is about the obsession with a lost lover and the jealousy and surveillance that follow. When asked why he appears angry in the music video Sting told BBC Radio 2, "I think the song is very, very sinister and ugly and people have actually misinterpreted it as being a gentle little love song, when it's quite the opposite".

Subject to the chords you play on your instrument this style can be used for many numbers of which Every Breath You Take is just one).
