This week marks the last video of the month, and since this is the month of love songs, I figured I'd end on a psychotic note - hee hee. "Every Breath You Take" was penned by Sting in less than an hour, and the rest of The Police then added their own unique touches to […]

Every Hero Needs A Theme Song - Part Five
