1983 The Police Synchronicity II

1983 The Police Synchronicity II 

The final studio album from the Police was easily their most successful. The group had already released top ten hits from the album with Every Breath You Take and Wrapped Around Your Finger, and the third single from the album became Synchronicity II

The lyrics are a challenge. The song is seemingly named for Carl Jung’s theory of synchronicity. The main character in the song is struggling with a home life that is so difficult that it appears to awaken the Loch Ness Monster. 

The group’s album contained a song entitled Synchronicity I, but that song was only released as a single in Japan. The single Synchronicity II peaked at only #16 on the Hot 100 in 1983. 

The group’s last single from the album was King Of Pain, which reached #3 on the Hot 100 and became the group’s final hit single in the US. The group intended to record another album in 1986, but drummer Stewart Copeland fell off a horse and broke his collarbone and the album was scraped. Sting began work on his first solo album and, except for some concert appearances, the Police essentially disbanded.
