The Trifecta: Synchronicity Side 2

The Police Synchronicity

IMHO, the first three songs on Side 2 of Synchronicity by The Police may very well be the best three pop/rock songs presented in sequence on one piece of grooved vinyl in the history of popular music. Perhaps it’s my age, the nostalgia around the fall of 1983 when I received Synchronicity as a gift for my…
