  • Singles

  • Note that the Police's first 4 UK singles, issued in 1977 and 1978, all charted very low on the UK Singles Chart, or failed to chart at all. The North American release (and chart success) of "Roxanne" in early 1979 prompted re-issues of these 4 singles in 1979 and 1980. All 4 singles made the charts upon re-issue helped in no small part by a wealth of coloured vinyl discs. Can't Stand Losing You was released in no less than four different colours, yellow white blue and red, with a green vinyl release of Message In A Bottle. Even their first single Fall Out was released in different coloured sleeves, and in 1980 the Six Pack of singles were on blue vinyl. This expensive set even made the higher reaches of the UK singles chart.
  • Dates refer to month of UK issue, except "Bring on the Night" and "Secret Journey", which were not released in the U.K. but were issued in America.(Missing entry from the table below): Roxanne was reissued in the UK in 1986 but failed to chart. It was coupled with Synchronicity II on the b side. Apparently, most copies have the word Synchronicity misspelt on the label, and a correctly spelt one is rarer. Also, due to listing the singles by their U.K. release, the U.S. order of release is altered. For instance, "King of Pain" is listed as the fourth single from the "Synchronicity" album to be released, though in the U.S. it was released as the second U.S. single from that album in 1983 as the follow-up to "Every Breath You Take."
