Every Breath You Take

Music by Sting

Originally Performed by The Police

"Every Breath You Take" was the biggest hit single of 1983, topping the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart for eight weeks (the band's only number-one hit on that chart), and the UK Singles Chart for four weeks. It also topped the Billboard Top Tracks chart for nine weeks. At the 26th Annual Grammy Awards the song 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 song ranked 84th on Rolling Stone's list of "The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time", the highest position of any new wave rock song. It also ranked number 25 on Billboard's Hot 100 All-Time Top Songs. The song is considered to be both The Police's and Sting's signature song, and in 2010 was estimated to generate between a quarter and a third of Sting's music publishing income. In the 1983 Rolling Stone critics and readers poll, it was voted "Song of the Year". In the US, it was the best-selling single of 1983 and fifth-best-selling single of the decade. Billboard ranked it as the number-one song for 1983. In 2015, the song was voted by the British public as the nation's favourite 1980s number one in a poll for ITV.
