Especially songs like In the Air Tonight and Against All Odds. Sabrina, don't just stare at it, eat it. But I also think Phil Collins works best within the confines of the group, than as a solo artist, and I stress the word artist. This is Sussudio, a great, great song, a personal favorite.
I have been youtubeing Phil Collins all morning now because of this post. Thank you for the in depth post.

I've never seen it either, but just googled "American Psycho Phil Collins". I wondered why you added all those strange comments....

I actually do like Genesis with Phil Collins and Phil Collins in his solo career. He's not my favorite, but I do like many of the songs.

No, Van Halen sissified themselves with the 1984 Album.

Early David Lee Roth was good. He has such an annoying persona that it makes many people want to discount all of his contributions.

Comparing Genesis with Peter Gabriel and Phil Collins is like comparing Watermelons and Bananas. I liked them both for much different reasons.

Yes, but I fell asleep. I thought your random quotes was just you being odd.

To those who have not seen American Psycho and want to better understand what those bolded words mean, go to Youtube and paste the following into the search dealio:

American Psycho (4/12) Movie CLIP - Sussudio (2000) HD

If you haven't seen the film, find it and watch it. It's pretty damn good.
