Message in a Bottle is [lastfm]Sting[/lastfm]‘s self professed favorite song, and Andy Summers (the guitarist for [lastfm]The Police[/lastfm]) agrees. Recorded in 1979, Message in a Bottle was The Police’s first song the make it to the top of the UK charts (though it would be four more years until the release of Every Breath You Take would put them at number one on the US charts).

For 2007’s Live Earth benefit concert, The Police performed Message in a Bottle with John Mayer accompanying Andy Summers on the song’s guitar part, and Kanye West inserting a rapped verse in place of the song’s chorus.
