Song of the day: Phil Collins- I Wish It Would Rain Down

In 1990, Phil Collins released another single from his album …But Seriously. For the song, he invited Eric Clapton, who had never before played on a Phil Collins record. As Phil Collins said: this is right down your street. The music video contained a lot of humour and references to Cream and Genesis. The song itself peaked at number 1 in Canada, number 3 in the US and number 7 in the UK. Enjoy

Song of the day: Genesis- Follow You Follow Me

Follow You Follow Me genesis

In 1978, Genesis was left with three members, causing the album title to be And Then There Were Three. Mike Rutherford wrote this love song in ten minutes, the band jammed a bit and then the song was there. In many ways this was a break through: it was the first Genesis hit in the US and the first written for a female audience, as almost all their fans were men. The song made it to number 7 in the UK and number 23 in the US. Enjoy

Song of the day: Cyndi Lauper- True Colors

cyndi_lauper_true-_colors

This is an eighties song from the album “True Colors”, and it’s the only original song on the album that Cyndi Lauper did not help writing. Writing was done by Billy Steinberg and Tom Kelly. They were responsible for the last number one hit for Cyndi Lauper in the US. The song was about the mother of Billy Steinberg, but it also became a popular in the gay scene. Later it was covered by Phil Collins, though that is a bad cover. I just think the original is a beautiful song and therefore enjoy

Song of the day: Four Tops- Loco In Acapulco

Some songs come around every summer, but are 1) not played on the radio in other seasons (or I miss them) and 2) nevertheless good.
This is one of these songs. And that’s quite strange, since it was a song made in 1988, so it is quite recently if you compare it with their other songs, which are all made around the sixties/seventies.
So what went wrong? I couldn’t tell: it isn’t the melody, not the text (partly written by Phil Collins), and not the purpose as soundtrack.
Nothing seems wrong, but you only hear it in summer. However, it’s a perfect summer song, so we should enjoy it now…

Song of the day: Phil Collins- Sussudio

Of course there are lots of good albums, and a lot of good artists which can be in this place. Therefore, I have enough material.
If you have a request, fill in the contact form, then I can consider that artist to have a song of the day!

Well, this is an album by Phil Collins, and it is called No Jacket Required. It’s in my eyes on of his better albums, and it certainly contains one of my favourite songs!
In this song, he seems to be stummering, but it’s just part of the song. Which one would that be?
Of course, it’s Sussudio!

Song of the day: Genesis- Jesus He Knows Me

Hello everybody!!!

Here’s another song of the day, with a nice clip!
The song is made by Genesis, a music group which is active since the sixties, and it was active until 2010.
And… wait! In Genesis, there was an artist we already know! Peter Gabriel, from the stopmotion video of Sledgehammer!
That’s nice, isn’t it?

Well, tomorrow.. Oh wait! I forgot the song! The song of the day is Jesus He Knows Me.
It’s one of the later songs of Genesis, from 1992.

Tomorrow a new song, and since the weather is so bad, it’s going to rain!

“Huh?? What does he mean?”
“How am I supposed to know that? He’s so cryptic, I mostly don’t know what song is the song of the day!”
