It was trending the other day because some people for some reason have only just discovered this. I shouldn't need to explain why this is great (the slow, aetherial build up and an excellent finish - I guess that explains part of it), but it has also been used in some great scenes in films and trailers. I will never forget the Cadbury advert with a drum-playing gorilla. That is part of my life now.
My Genesis concert has been rightly postponed to next year too. Hopefully it doesn't get cancelled altogether, but one day I might see Phil Collins and the band (of his later era's line-up) perform live.
If anyone has noticed the home page today then they'll know why this has been in my head a lot lately. I'm not usually able to do anything substantial at the same time as listening to music, but It was quite relaxing working on it with this in the background.
From a period in the late 90s when Ray Wilson temporarily stepped in as the lead singer. This period was very brief (one album) and is seldom remembered or appreciated (most people think of either Peter Gabriel or Phil Collins instead of the younger Ray Wilson and his background in grunge) but it did produce some good songs.
To think that everything that's dear to me And is always in my heart
Could so easily be taken
And it's tearing me apart
Going over and over in my mind I relive it one second at a time.
Depressing lyrics but quite relatable to people for a Genesis song.
Only the one! So, whatever the song title suggests, it's basically about being a Labourite being horny for a Tory - even though you disagree with their POVs and general grounds, they got that bomb... Bed game?
Anyways, it's misleadingly innocent and whimsical; it's a duality I really quite like!
But then she starts to cry,
Everything is turning to black,
All in one night,
She just went to heaven and back.
Your solitude is welcome, welcome.
Your attitude is welcome, welcome.
All you see is red lights behind me,
Maybe this isn't what you wanted, baby.
I don't blame you falling backwards,
No one's ever quite confused you this way.
