It's Sunday evening once again! "Turn on the TV!" Mom shouted as the clock struck seven. Few seconds later, a song played on very high volume begun -- "Every breath you take, Every move you make, Every bond you break, Every step you take, I'll be watching you."

No. It wasn't her favorite local singer on TV. It was her favorite song "Every Breath You Take" by THE POLICE that was sang by a local artist. Mom is a great fan of this three-piece rock band. Whenever she hears a song from this group, she dashes into the room in rubber sandals hoping not to miss anything, that, almost always, we would experience being swallowed up in an indescribable aroma of a burning dish she was preparing for supper. Yes, that is how fanatic she is.

Not only that. My town folks are lovers of THE POLICE too. If a stranger would happen to pass by our town, he'd probably be delighted to hear a variety of The Police songs blaring from every living room windows. "Roxanne", "De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da", "Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic", "Bring on the Night", "Walking on the Moon" -- what more can you ask for?

I grew up in a family of music lovers, learned my first song in 1981 and sang in public in 1984 when I was even barely understanding the lyrics. Do you know what my first song was? Right. It was "Every Breath You Take".

When I heard about the Police Eyewonder banner, a one stop shop to know what is the latest and greatest with one of the all-time most successful bands, I quickly took a peek. Wow! A definitive Police CD Collection - 28 classic tracks on 2 CDs!

On June 5, 2007, The Police released in the US their first double-disc CD 'Best of' collection entitled, The Police, in time for the 30th anniversary celebration of their recording debut. The 28 songs bring together the biggest hits from the band's five original studio albums and includes their very first single, 1977's 'Fall Out'.

The Eyewonder is indeed a one-stop shop and entertainment-filled, all for you and me Police lovers. I love the classic videos of the group. Watch music videos of Roxanne, Don't Stand So Close To Me, Every Breath You Take, Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic, I Can't Stand Losing You, Message In A Bottle, De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da, and Wrapped Around Your Finger -- all in one site.

There is also a jukebox where you see the list of all the 28 classic tracks. If you want to win a trip to New York to see the Police live, worry no more. Participate in the contest. All you need to do is fill up a short form and answer 9 basic questions. That's it. Here are the prizes at stake:

I am sure by now you are eager to grab a copy of the Police CD collection, just as I am. I will get one for Mom. Sure, she'd jump with joy getting this. One more thing, each purchase will include a vintage poster. That's awesome.
