Not a major fan, but In the Air Tonight is Though I'll probably never ever get the gorilla from that Cadbury ad out of my head whenever I listen to the song.

You know what else is a good song? Easy Lover, his duet with Philip Bailey from Earth, Wind and Fire. Great song.

The same for me, although I was a few years older.

Seriously, I have said it before and I will say it again; No Jacket Required is one of the best albums of the 80's.

That's the worst album in my collection! (Yes, I realise I just admitted that I have this album) I initially liked it a bit, but the album became worse with every listen. The dreadful production.

That said, I think that ...But Seriously is a really good album. However, due to No Jacket Required I never bothered to check out his earlier stuff (Face Value and Hello, I Must Be Going). And after his live album, Serious Hits Live, his songs became incredibly bland.
Nevertheless, as a solo artist, he deserves points for ...But Seriously.

I loved that video when it first came out. Highly original, at the time! I've always thought that someone contemporary should cover it--a Radiohead or Pearl Jam version could be pretty cool.

...The drums at the end of In the Air Tonight have always amazed me.

Dude, seriously, if you dislike the direction he went after No Jacket Required, it is absolute necessity to listen to his first two solo outings. They're incredible imo, not bland in the least bit.

Oh, and I like Phil Genesis AND Gabriel Genesis. And Phil solo, and Gabriel solo. I also love The Living Years (Mike Rutherford).

They're fools. And the scene in the movie when it plays is classic too.

Wondering if you appreciate Separate Lives to a similar level. When she comes in with that second verse...wow. Just wow.

I was a big fan of the movie White Nights and practically wore out the soundtrack.

Now that it is no longer the 80s, I realize that most of the soundtrack was utter crap ... but Separate Lives is still great.

I don't know how you would feel about it, but did you miss this cover last year or the year before?

YouTube - Disturbed - Land Of Confusion (Video)

I just watched the film for the first time a year ago.....it is a little dated, but it's hard not to like something with those three leads.....

Separate Lives does not do it for me like Against All Odds, but it's not a bad song by any means.

Here are other Genesis/Collins songs I legitimately like:


No Reply At All
Man on the Corner
Home by the Sea
Throwing it all Away
Turn it On Again
Tonight, Tonight, Tonight
In Too Deep
I Don't Care Any More
Take me Home
One More Night

There you go, haters. Eat it.

"Phail Collins": BRILLIANT.

I can't wait to see what gets done to Bon Jovi.
