80s Genesis songs I like a lot: Tonight Tonight Tonight, Mama, That's All, Land of Confusion (to an extent). 70s Genesis was brilliant.
I'd probably add Home By the Sea/Second Home By the Sea and maybe Turn it on Again.

As for Collins solo, it starts and ends with In the Air Tonight. He should have retired before he started doing movie soundtrack songs (as should have Bryan "don't call me Ryan" Adams).

There are three Bryan Adams songs I enjoy: Cuts Like a Knife, Run to You and Summer of '69.

Heaven is made up of some kind of magical property, the exact midway point between music and wallpaper. If you listen carefully, you can hear a dentist drilling way in the background. (Everything I Do) I Do It For You would provide enough corn to feed the entire Midwest if they ever faced a devastating drought. The Only Thing That Looks Good on Me Is You is like that time Bono wore eyeliner.

I think that's every song by Bryan Adams I know.

That's pretty much it. Maybe add "Its Only Love".

I want to take this opportunity to mention that Private Dancer was one of the better blockbuster 80s pop albums. The title track is pretty powerful actually.

That song is awful, but I will channel my inner Brau and say that Reckless was a great 80's collection of pop/rock with endless hooks. Just skip Heaven.

Lifes Rich Pageant by R.E.M. is one of the greatest albums ever. Not a single weak song on it. I'd also say New Adventures In Hi-Fi is also hugely underrated. They didn't get the popularity like Out Of Time, Automatic for the people, and Monster. But those 2 are definetly some of their best material.

Most R.E.M. fans I know (including the ones here) rate both of those albums very high.

Who are you bullshitting, lazzy? You are a closet Phil Collins fan. As a matter of fact, you can't get to sleep at night unless you've heard Sussudio.

Life's Rich Pageant is in the running for my favorite R.E.M. album. Definitely on Mount Rushmore.

Another one I thought of today: October. I've always really liked it, but I think I'm in the minority.
