Magic Song by the Police

It was the first song that Sting played to Andy Summers and Stuart Copeland when the Police came together in 1977: Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic.

Sting thought it sounded like a #1 hit - the other two weren't sure, as Copeland recalls;

"I remember Sting for years trying to think of a rhyme for 'magic', as in 'Every Little Things She Does Is Magic.' I think the only word he could come up with, apart from 'tragic', was 'pelagic', which means 'ocean going'. There I was in my leather pants and punk hairdo, pondering the distinction between ocean-going and river-going fish." !

Sting eventually won the battle to record the song his way, and it was released in 1981 to worldwide acclaim.
