Ah, I hadn't heard either usage before. Thanks.

If I'm not mistaken, Jake also means "little bastard/piece of shit".

You know what's even funnier? I know the song from that black & white Moonlighting episode, where was a film noir thing, in the 40s, and Cybill Shepard played a nightclub singer.

What the fuck is your problem, man? You must have some pent up rage against me or something. We all know how much you secretly enjoy Phil Collins and Bon Jovi. Just shut up and wait for the Def Leppard appreciation thread!

It's not pent up anymore.

Hyuk hyuk.

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.
Great list. I think people forget what it takes to write a truly great song that can still be appreciated 20+ years later, and most of those are timeless and excellent songwriting. Phil Collins had/has a serious gift.



Oh...and on the 'phail' collins bit. I got it, laughed, because of course it was funny... but still felt it might be going a bit too far because the OP might feel as if their idea was being openly mocked. I'm glad you changed it back Khan..this has been an otherwise great thread for me. And a great concept/idea for others, Zoots

I agree, great list, very similar to mine. I would also add:

Misunderstanding
That's All
Invisible Touch
I Can't Dance
I Missed Again

They're mostly all Genesis, I know, but like I said, they're pretty much interchangeable to me.

For the record, while I'm a fan of older Genesis, I do like quite a bit of later Genesis. Duke is a great record.

As for his solo material, he had some good stuff through those first four albums. The first in particular is great.

Possibly my favorite Moonlighting episode. Plus it was introduced by Orson Welles, who was a friend of Shepherd's at the time.

Does anyone listen to This American Life on NPR? There's a great episode from a while back where one of the contributors contacts Phil Collins so he can help her write a break-up song. She picked Collins because she felt Against All Odds was the pinnacle of that type of song. Collins was hilarious, thoughtful, and a real good sport about it (not that she was making fun of him).

You can stream the whole episode here:

This American Life

It's the first part so you don't have to listen to the whole thing...

Thanks for the compliment, Gabe.

And Khan, I did not mean to sound pissy towards you with that post. Actually I have always thought that the "phail collins" joke is funny ever since I saw it as your location, I think. In fact I sometimes accidentally type Phail Collins.... I guess cos of the overuse of Epic Phail and it amuses me to no end! I did not get worked up about it like Axver said but I did think it was going a bit too far to edit the title, it felt like a mod was saying to me "this is what you get for making a phil collins thread haha". But I figured it was only made in jest, so no hard feelings I hope.

Dude I know you lost power at home and everything but I was surprised you didn't comment on my We Can't Dance appreciation post here. I know you like that album, don't hide!
