The Police
On this day:
At 17th September of 1983, The Police started a nine week run at No.1 on the US album chart with 'Synchronicity'. The band's most popular release, the album includes the hit singles "Every Breath You Take," "King of Pain,", "Wrapped Around Your Finger," and "Synchronicity II." Much of the album's material was inspired by Arthur Koestler's 'The Roots of Coincidence', which inspired the title and concept of the album. At the 1984 Grammy Awards the album was nominated for a total of five awards including Album of the Year and won three. At the time of its release and following its immensely popular tour The Police were hailed as the "Biggest Band in the World".

For those who grown up in suburban towns, reared on pop radio and were too young to have been effected by punk’s brief seismic flash, The Police were one of the key singles bands of the late 1970s and early 1980s.

With the advent of post-punk, new pop, the nascent hip-hop scene and any number of bands bringing electronic music into the charts and mainstream consciousness, the first few years of the decade that came to be defined by strife, civil unrest and unfettered deregulation proved to be some of the most exciting times in music since the pop explosion of the 1960s.

In retrospect this was also a time of teenage exuberance, that period of time where the world revolves around the idealism and anxieties of youth but what was true was that the best music of the day was intent on moving things forward.

By 1983, The Police were one of, if not the biggest band on the planet. With the exception of their debut, 'Outlandos d’Amour', all of their albums: 'Regatta De Blanc', 'Zenyatta Mondatta' and 'Ghost In The Machine' had reached pole position in the album charts on the back of singles that frequently ram-raided radio playlists, the top 20 and any of the teenage parties that were thrown when the parents went away for the weekend.

Simultaneously more pop-oriented and experimental than either 'Ghost in the Machine' or 'Zenyatta Mondatta', 'Synchronicity' made the Police superstars, generating no less than four hit singles: "Every Breath You Take", "King of Pain", "Wrapped Around Your Finger", and "Synchronicity II".

The making of the album was a rough process, with drummer Stewart Copeland and guitarist Andy Summers playing session musicians to main songwriter Sting’s compositions, and the turmoil caused by this change in band dynamics would ultimately cause them to go on an indefinite hiatus after touring for the album. While the hits are among Sting's best, they also illustrate that he was ready to leave the Police behind for a solo career, which is exactly what he did.
