Music video by The Police performing Message In A Bottle. (C) 1979 A&M Records Ltd.
"Message in a Bottle" is a 1979 song by The Police, from their second album, Reggatta de Blanc.
The song is ostensibly about a castaway on an imagined island, who sends out a message in a bottle to seek love. A year later, he feels that there is no need for love. Later on, he sees "a hundred billion bottles" on the shore, finding out that there are more people like him out there. The Police debuted the song on live television.
The single was The Police's first number one hit in the United Kingdom, but only reached #74 in the United States. An alternate "Classic Rock" mix is available on Every Breath You Take: The Classics. This is Sting's favorite song as confessed to Jools Holland of BBC fame.
