Song 292 (The Police--"Message In A Bottle")
This is one of my favorite songs from Sting and the Police; it deals with the subject of alienation.
The dynamics of the song are excellent, I love the way that the song drags a bit in the verses but picks up in the chorus. The rhythm section of this song is the most powerful aspect in my opinion; this is apparent in the interlude at the end of the chorus.
Here is the studio version on YouTube.
