Possession is the first single from Sarah McLachlan's album Fumbling Towards Ecstasy. It was released in Canada 10 September 1993 by Nettwerk Records. The song is written from the point of view of an obsessed fan. Following the album's release, a fan named Uwe Vandrei sued McLachlan for songwriting credit, claiming that his letters were used as the basis of the song. The case never made it to trial as Vandrei was found dead of apparent suicide in November 1994. Read more on Last.fm.
