The Sun: Invisible Sun

The Police: Invisible Sun


Time for a metaphorical Sun song - Invisible Sun was the first single to be released from the 1981 album Ghost in the Machine, it reached #2 in the UK charts. The ominous sounding number, quite a departure from The Police's typically upbeat Pop, is about the violence in Northern Ireland during the 80s. The BBC banned the video for including footage referring to the conflict.

"Life is a pure flame, and we live by an invisible sun within us." - Sir Thomas Browne

There has to be an invisible sun
It gives its heat to everyone
There has to be an invisible sun
That gives us hope when the whole days done

The Police - Invisible Sun
