Happy Birthday, Sting!
For Sting's 64th birthday today (October 2), Billboard has compiled a list of the rocker's top 20 Billboard Hot 100 hits, both with the Police and as a soloist. He's notched a No. 1 in each iteration: with the Police, in 1983, with "Every Breath You Take" and as a solo act, although with the assistance of Bryan Adams and Rod Stewart, with 1994's "All for Love" from the movie The Three Musketeers (hence, the song's three musical musketeers). He's tallied six top 10s with the Police and another five in his solo career.
The Sting & the Police's Biggest Billboard 100 Hits chart is based on actual performance on the weekly Billboard Hot 100, through the Oct. 10, 2015, ranking. Songs are ranked based on an inverse point system, with weeks at No. 1 earning the greatest value and weeks at No. 100 earning the least. Due to changes in chart methodology over the years, certain eras are weighted to account for different chart turnover rates over various periods.
