"Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic" is a song by The Police which was originally an acoustic ballad Sting wrote while The Police were known as Strontium 90 (and included bassist Mike Howlett). You can hear the first recording of this song if you find their rare CD, Police Academy, released in 1997 and produced by Mike Howlett.

Sting used a lyric from this, "Do I have to tell the story of a thousand rainy days since we first met? It's a big enough umbrella but it's always me that ends up getting wet," on some other songs he wrote, including The Police's "O My God" from Synchronicity and "Seven Days" from his solo album Ten Summoner's Tales. (thanks, Jeff - Kendall Park, NJ, for above 2)

True to their Punk roots, The Police have some colorful and dysfunctional characters in their early songs. While this song seems very endearing, the guy clearly has some issues, as he pursues a girl who does not return his affections. He might be crossing over into stalker territory as he resolves to call her up "1000 times a day."

This was the only track on Ghost In The Machine not recorded in Montserrat, an island in the Caribbean (it was recorded in Canada). However the promo video was shot at George Martin's Montserrat studio - we can see people of the island with the members of the band. The police were deeply influenced by the music of the Caribbean (Reggae music). (thanks, Mylene - Guadeloupe French West Indies, France)

This appeared on the soundtrack of the Adam Sandler movie The Wedding Singer and the 2005 film Bewitched. (thanks, Jazzz - Frankfurt, Germany)

In 1982 this won the Best Pop Song at the annual Ivor Novello Awards. (thanks, Edward Pearce - Ashford, Kent, England)

The intro to this song was used by German R&B singer Sebastian Hamer for "Immer Noch." His song's meaning is just about the opposite of the original. (thanks, Thomas - Saarbrucken, Germany)
