Today on ‘Tickets @ 2′ it’s the biggest hit of 1983 “Every Breath You Take” by The Police. It was # 1 for 8 weeks.

It’s one of the most misinterpreted songs ever. It’s about an obsessive stalker, but it sounds like a love song. Some people even used it as their wedding song. Police frontman Sting wrote it after separating from his first wife, Frances. Sting called it a “nasty little song, really rather evil.”

The song won a Grammy in 1984 for Song Of The Year and Best Pop Performance By Duo Or Group.

When you hear it play between two and three we’ll take lucky caller 13 at 1-800-232-KRTH (5784) to win a pair of tickets to see Styx  at the Pacific Amphitheatre.
