9. 'Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic'

The first single from Ghost in the Machine in England was "Invisible Sun," but the record company figured that the rest of the world should get something a little less serious: "Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic." Sting had been fiddling with the tune since his earliest days in the Police, but he didn't get around to finishing it until the Ghost in the Machine sessions. The work paid off and it flew up the charts all over the world. The song was memorably used in The Wedding Singer.

Here's a scary fact: we're now further away in time from The Wedding Singer's release than the Wedding Singer was from 1985, the year it took place in.
