Uncool Music Appreciation ~ Episode 1 ~ Phil Collins Appreciation Thread

Welcome to the UMAs where we celebrate artists and bands that are generally completely hated and reviled by the cool kids of this forum. Here you will find all those artists that you have been advised over and over not to like by the ones with impeccable taste in music. So don't look for B&C favorites like Radiohead, Arcade Fire or Sigur Ros in here. In fact, indie music is banned in this thread. The more mainstream an artist is, more is the chance you will find them featured in this series. Now let's go ahead and celebrate extremely popular mainstream music with the UMAs!

For our first episode the featured artist is Phil Collins, former drummer of progressive rock group Genesis and Grammy winning solo artist.




Here are 3 random well-known songs...

YouTube - Phil Collins - Against All Odds

YouTube - Phil Collins - Sussudio

YouTube - Phil Collins - I wish it would rain down (1989)

Here's the wiki entry on him:
Phil Collins - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

And here's the official site:
Phil Collins - Official Site for Phil Collins

Enjoy!

Next up: The band who's initials abbreviate to something that cannot be discussed on prime time television!

When I was in year three at school, our class did a performance to Another Day In Paradise. I think the basic premise was that some kids were playing as the homeless, all moping about, and then some other kids from the other side of town came out from behind the curtains and started dancing with them. I was hardly satisfied with this, and asked my teacher if I could be allowed to fake-drive a cardboard convertible across the stage, just to happily remind the audience that there are rich people too.

That's my contribution to the Phil Collins thread.

I saw Phil Collins live in the early/mid 80s. A friend had an extra ticket so I went. It was a fun show and I had a good time. Never liked him enough to buy anything -- besides his songs were all over the radio then -- but you could do a whole lot worse than Phil Collins.

Always reminds me of Miami Vice too.

I used to LOVE Phil Collins... Then I turned 10...

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.

Something Happened on the Way to Heaven

But Sussidio is one of the most dreadful songs I have ever heard.

I absolutely love Against All Odds.

I also will admit to liking You'll Be in My Heart. (But the South Park song should have beaten it for the Oscar.)

As for Genesis, I love, love, LOVE Mama.

I LOVE Face Value.

No Jacket Required is a really fun album too. But, Seriously... and Both Sides of The Story are good albums as well.

I'd say I'm actually a big Phil Collins fan.

You know who loved Phil Collins? The American Psycho - in fact, right before he massacred Paul Allen he listened to Sussudio. Good things Zoots is Indian!


I do like Against All Odds. And Something in the Air Tonight is kinda cool.
