Pumped About the Police

Sting. Stewart. Andy. They are touring together again. The Police are back. And I am really pumped.

I have loved the band for about as long as I've loved any group. I can't believe they are back together again and touring the world. The tour and the new Police CD are both very exciting to me. It feels like I am twelve again, holding a brand new copy of Synchronicity in my hands... but of course, it will be a CD instead of an album this time round.

Speaking of that new Police CD, take a look at this cover graphic

Sweeeeet! There they are, back together again. I can't wait to see them on stage, just like that, all 3 of them.

And the graphic is just the beginning. The titles are some of the best ever.
It really doesn't get much better than this. Just look at these track titles:

Disc: 1
1. Fallout
2. Can't Stand Losing You
3. Next to You
4. Roxanne
5. Truth Hits Everybody
6. Hole in My Life
7. So Lonely
8. Message in a Bottle
9. Reggatta de Blanc
10. Bring on the Night
11. Walking on the Moon
12. Don't Stand So Close to Me
13. Driven to Tears
14. Canary in a Coalmine

Disc: 2
1. Do Do Do de da da Da
2. Voices Inside My Head
3. Invisible Sun
4. Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic
5. Spirits in the Material World
6. Demolition Man
7. Every Breath You Take
8. Synchronicity I
9. Wrapped Around Your Finger
10. Walking in Your Footsteps
11. Synchronicity II
12. King of Pain
13. Murder by Numbers
14. Tea in the Sahara

Those 28 songs include some of the best ever. I have been a long, long time fan of The Police, and I am really pumped about their tour and new CD. I am going to feel like I've been rocketed back to my youth with the release of this CD, and I would so love to have a copy of it in my hands right now. If the tour includes either Shanghai or Singapore, I will make sure and be at the show -- maybe I'll even see it twice if they stop in both cities. It would be really fun to watch them in both cities, with a different set of friends each time. I would really love that.

I can't help but smile thinking back to my memories of those songs when they were new. It makes me smile and makes the heart ache with nostalgia all at the same time, remembering. It's not that I don't listen to the songs all the time -- because, to be honest, I still do. But it is just that having them together again, and hopefully performing in my city (or cities) is just too much.

I'll keep you posted on whether I get to go. And I will keep my fingers crossed. I am hoping, too, to get a package with the new CD in it very soon...!!! (*ahem*)
