Wrapped Around Your Finger" is the second UK single (and fourth US single) from the Police's 1983 album Synchronicity. Written by Sting, it was released worldwide by A&M Records and featured the non-album track "Someone to Talk To" as a B-side in the UK, while a live version of "Tea in the Sahara" was the US B-side. Like other tracks on Synchronicity, such as "Every Breath You Take" and "King of Pain," "Wrapped Around Your Finger" was a personal song for Sting.
In "Wrapped Around Your Finger," the band is inside a labyrinth of candles, which Sting knocks down at the end. It's all in slow motion, but the lip-sync is in time with the music - something that required an unusual performance. Speaking with Songfacts, Kevin Godley explained the concept and execution: "The song was very graceful and very elegant, and we had the idea of the candles, but just filming them among candles didn't seem enough - there was something lacking in the idea. visually, it would look great, but it was about how it moved. The rock band Underoath did a cover of this song on the 2005 Police tribute album Policia! A Tribute To The Police. Wrapped around your finger is a chilling song about a man who has had enough and decisively moves from being under the control of a woman to the one in control. Christina from Brooklyn, MdMephistopheles is Greek for the Devil-" a demon.
