King of Pain is a song by English rock band The Police, released as the final single from their fifth and final studio album Synchronicity 1983. Written by the band's lead singer and bassist Sting as a post-separation song from his wife, King of Pain conjures up symbols of pain and relates them to a man's soul. A&M Records released King of Pain as the album's fourth single in the UK, while in many other countries it was released as the second single. Music video by The Police performing King Of Pain.

The Police recorded the Synchronicity album on the Caribbean Island of Monserrat. This was a tough song to record, and the sessions were a bit contentious, as Sting didn't accept most of the suggestions from Andy Summers and Stewart Copeland. The group split up after the album was released. King of pain is a masterpiece to me and highly underrated as an exceptional single, especially by the in-the-know rock experts. Anything Bob Dylan ever murmurred or slurred is considered a classic but much of Sting's brilliance I think anyway is overlooked. Album Synchronicity. King of Pain Lyrics. There's a little black spot on the sun today It's the same old thing as yesterday There's a black hat caught in a high tree top There's a flag pole rag and the wind won't stop. I have stood here before inside the pouring rain With the world turning circles running 'round my brain I guess I'm always hoping that you'll end this reign But it's my destiny to be the king of pain.
