* "Invisible Sun", a song about UsefulNotes/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 meaningful for anyone who's ever gone through a bad break-up.
* "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.
* "King of Pain". The title says it all.
