Are LA radio stations playing "I'll Be Watching You" for Dorner?
Gun Watch ^ | 9 February, 2013 | Dean Weingarten

Can anyone from LA tell me if the radio stations are getting requests to play "I'll be Watching You" by Sting? The lyrics seem eerily appropriate to the present situation.

I always thought that song was creepy.

Here are half of the lyrics:

Every breath you take
And every move you make
Every bond you break
Every step you take
I'll be watching you

Every single day
And every word you say
Every game you play
Every night you stay
I'll be watching you

Oh, can't you see
You belong to me
Now my poor heart aches
With every step you take

Every move you make
Every vow you break
Every smile you fake
Every claim you stake
I'll be watching you

I am half serious about calls requesting this song. It would not surprise me.

It would also not surprise me to see Chief Beck call for it to be suppressed, as "inappropriate".

If LA stations start playing this song, the LAPD is in worse shape than we thought.

Do people even call radio stations to request songs anymore?

Are radio stations playing “I’ll Be Watching You”??

Are UFO’s searching for Dorner??

Are....???

From the article, it does not indicate radio stations are playing anything.

No. It’s just a popular song... a little creepy though.

Of course not. Corporate makes all the calls. The DJs are reduced to saying silly things and making sure they commercials are sequenced properly. It bites.

Peek-A-Boo--The Cadillacs (1958)

When you come home from the dance,
Stand in the halls and make a romance,
When ya do the thing you shouldn't do,
(Peek-a-boo, a-watchin' you)

When you ought to be in school
Learning about the golden rule;
When ya tell a tale that isn't true
(Peek-a-boo, a-watchin' you)

Look in the dark...
You see my face
(Aaaah!)
Don't try to hide,
I'm every place.
Very cool, hot and sweet,
I'm going to give you, *hot feet.

Hope you heard the things I said.
Let it sink in your big hard head.
When you dance
The soles right off your shoes,
(Peek-a-boo, I'm watchin' you)

(Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha)

Look in the dark,
You see my face.
(Oooow!)
Don't try to hide,
I'm every place.
Very cool, kind-a sweet.
I'm going to give you, hot feet.

Hope you heard the things I said.
Let it sink in your big hard head.
When you dance
The soles right off the shoes,
(Peek-a-boo, I'm watchin' you)

Doin' the things you shouldn't do
(Peek-a-boo, I'm watchin' you)

Doin' the things you shouldn't do
(Peek-a-boo, I'm watchin' you)

* 'hot feet' refers to a Southern hoodoo foot track magic powder (in a can) used to send the unwanted person away. Sprinkled On footprints or socks or shoes. Some of the Scents are hot, sweet and/or spicy.

Don’t forget that Valentine’s Day is coming up, and for some reason I personally can’t fathom, a lot of folks think this is some kind of love ballad.

As I recall, even Sting (the songwriter) commented once that people thinking of “Every Breath You Take” as a love song was kind of creepy, as the song is (obviously) about obsession.

Still, a classic off one of my favorite Police albums.

For the record (so to speak), the song is actually entitled, “Every Breath You Take,” by the Police.

I don’t know about that, but most of the stations I listen to will take requests via email. And I only call a station if I’m trying to win concert tickets.

I miss those radio shows that took requests. Back before KUSC, at 91.5 megacycles, went all-classical, it featured a variety of programs including a Sunday-night "Oldies" show on which the DJ, Lane Quigley, invited listeners to phone in requests. So I requested Bazoom! by the Cheers, a forgotten hit unlikely to be requested by anyone else--and was astounded to hear it five minutes later. I was soon regularly making requests on that program.

And yet, Chief Beck looks like Tom Selleck.

Should do like the Lady DJ in the movie “The Warriors” and play “Nowhere to Run”.

The question is does the song mean that the citizens of LA will be watching Dorner or the LAPD ?

“I’ll be watching you”? LOL—they can’t even find him, much less watch him.

Too true. We have a more recent station in S. MS (BOB 104.9) that claims it will play anything. It does manage to hit a number of genres, but if you listen at the same time for 3 days running, you will hear about 10 repeat songs. Hard to believe they can't do better than that for variety.

Maybe it’s Maxine Waters calling in.

If they start playing it in conjunction with Phil Collins' In The Air Tonight, we'll really know something's up.

Yea, they will play whatever you want, as long as it’s in their playlist (and reasonably far up on the rotation). Call them up and ask for something else, and they will politely tell you to get lost.

They do. But then Dorner calls in and requests “we are never ever getting back together.”

His face is flashed on every clear channel electronic billboard all over the city. No one hasn’t seen him. I don’t know how he could get around, unless he has disguised himself as a much smaller white guy.

Lots of big black guys out there. Travel at night, wear a wig. Only travel when absolutely needed. Hole up during the day.

Better yet, have the confederate who picked you up at Big Bear drive you about in a white van.

It could mean that Dorner is watching the LAPD.
