Message in a Bottle by The Police.

Catchy music and lyrics you can visualize. Can you see a hundred billion bottles washed up on a shore? As long as I can remember, I’ve always pictured Sting walking out on the beach one morning and seeing bottles everywhere. I’ve never actually found a message in a bottle before or sent one. Have you?

Message in a Bottle was released in 1979 from their second album, Reggatta De Blanc. The lyrics are self explanatory – it’s about a guy who sends out a message in a bottle hoping to find love. After a year of no response, he starts to believe that he’s destined to be alone. But then one day he finds the beach covered in bottles and realizes there are several other people who feel alone like he does.

It was the band’s first #1 hit in the UK but it only made #74 in the United States.
