THE POLICE – Released Their Massive Hit Single ‘MESSAGE IN A BOTTLE’ 40 Years Ago Today…

Knockouts from the past

21 September 2019


Band: The Police
Song: Message In A Bottle / B-side: Landlord
Released: 21 September 1979 / 40 years ago today
Album: Regatta De Blanc – the band’s 20nd album
Note: Written by Sting, obviously about a castaway on an island, who sends out a message in a bottle to seek love. A year later, he sees ‘a hundred billion bottles‘ (quite a lot if you ask me) on the shore, finding out that he’s not the only one who’s alone
