Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic (4:21)

Cover of The Very Best Of Sting And The Police

From The Very Best Of Sting And The Police and 56 other releases

“Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic” is a song by British rock group The Police from their studio album Ghost in the Machine. It was also a hit single that reached the top of the charts in the United Kingdom in November 1981 and hit number three on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart that same year.

Although released in 1981, Sting had written this song as early as 1976. A very early (1977) acoustic version of this song performed by him can be heard on the Strontium 90 album Strontium 90: Police Academy.

Sting added this bit of “Every Little Thing…” lyrics to the end of “O My God” on the Police’s 1983 release Synchronicity:

“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.”

These lyrics were later reused once more in Sting’s “Seven Days” on his solo album Ten Summoner’s Tales.

The piano part was added by session keyboardist Jean Roussel who pestered the band to allow him to play on the track, against Andy Summers’ original wishes.

The song appears in the video game Karaoke Revolution Party, The Office episode entitled Phyllis’ Wedding in Season 3 and in the 2005 film Bewitched.

The song was referenced in the video game Warcraft II, where the cheat code “every little thing she does” instantly gives the player all magic-related upgrades.
