The List

Phil Collins.


Does anyone have any arguments for keeping Mr. Collins alive?

I would say his addion to "The List" is a no brainier

Whoa buddy, ouch!

Call it misguided youth, but Phil Collins and Genesis pretty much made me the awesome guy I am today. (explains a lot, I am sure)

I think you are grossy underestimating the positive impact of hits like "Sussudio", "One More Night", "Against All Odds", and of course "In the Air Tonight".

Take it away, Patrick:
Patrick Bateman: Do you like Phil Collins? I've been a big Genesis fan ever since the release of their 1980 album, Duke. Before that, I really didn't understand any of their work. Too artsy, too intellectual. It was on Duke where Phil Collins' presence became more apparent. I think Invisible Touch was the group's undisputed masterpiece. It's an epic meditation on intangibility. At the same time, it deepens and enriches the meaning of the preceding three albums. Christy, take off your robe. Listen to the brilliant ensemble playing of Banks, Collins and Rutherford. You can practically hear every nuance of every instrument. Sabrina, remove your dress. In terms of lyrical craftsmanship, the sheer songwriting, this album hits a new peak of professionalism. Sabrina, why don't you, uh, dance a little. Take the lyrics to Land of Confusion. In this song, Phil Collins addresses the problems of abusive political authority. In Too Deep is the most moving pop song of the 1980s, about monogamy and commitment. The song is extremely uplifting. Their lyrics are as positive and affirmative as anything I've heard in rock. Christy, get down on your knees so Sabrina can see your asshole. Phil Collins' solo career seems to be more commercial and therefore more satisfying, in a narrower way. 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.

Your defense of Phil Collins is based on the beliefs of a soulless socio-pathinc psycho killer. Feel proud

How could you not support the views of someone that makes killing a call girl with a chain saw from a few flights up in their underwear and sneakers so damn cool?

K. Tuttle said...

I'll tell you who he should have been dropping the chain saw on. Phil Collins.

It's easier to hit those when the coach pitches to you, eh?

Still, I have given plenty of reason to support the lifespan of Mr.Collins. . . so what have you got?

And Phil wouldn't have gotten hit by the chainsaw, he would have felt it coming in the air tonight.

Wow, I don't know me anymore.
