* The story of the production of the ''Music/{{Synchronicity}}'' album can be a tear jerker itself. Sting, Summers, and Copeland pretty much hated each other at that point and didn't want to be even in the same room with each other. Copeland had to record his parts in the studio's ''dining room'', Sting in the control room, and Summers recorded his parts in the actual studio. Plus, overdubs had to be done with only one member in the studio at a time. But the biggest tear jerker in the story is the recording of "Every Breath You Take". Fights between Copeland and Sting were becoming increasingly common. It culminated when Sting and Copeland got into a full-on ''fist fight'' during the recording of this song. Hugh Padgham, the producer of the album, nearly walked out and cancelled the recording sessions completely, but a meeting with the band's manager Miles Copeland (Stewart's brother) helped the band [[EarnYourHappyEnding continue recording the album]], but it showed how quickly the band was falling apart.

* "Message in a Bottle" is [[LyricalDissonance a catchy song]] about a castaway on an island, who hopes to find love. A year later, after no response, he despairs - thinking that he's destined to be alone. He then sees "a hundred billion bottles" on the shore, and realizes that there are more people like him.

* "Don't Stand So Close To Me '86" is already quite melancholy because of the subdued arrangement, but [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wh9Axol_cX4 the music video]] makes things even worse. On top of numerous flashes back to their GloryDays as a live band, the band never appears in the same shot, representing how much their relationship had deteriorated.

* "Invisible Sun", a song about TheTroubles, is arguably their most potent politically-minded song.

* "Every Breath You Take." Fittingly for a song about a stalker, it has an incredibly haunting tune, and is especially potent for anyone who's ever gone through a bad break-up.
