I suppose I will be the only one to comment on this post. O well, so be it.

FILLED WITH TYPOS?!?!?!

O boy. Maybe I shouldn't type while drinking.

I imagined that playlist as culminating with Supper's Ready, then a little 'Duke Suite' serving as an encore - with an old, old old song, "The Knife", breaking it up.

And I can't imagine a stronger opening than the abacab/dodo pairing.

Anyway, it's all about the passion. Talk about the passion, isn't that what REM sang? I am happy to be able to say that I still manage to be passionate, about several things; when I can't muster that passion anymore, life will be bleak indeed.

I'll be ready for the Home by The Sea.

A three minute "Tonight Tonight Tonight"? Why?

LOL!

Where'd my comment go? I did more than laugh at Jacquandor.

BP, Dodo's one of my favorites. I love the keyboards after the two lines I quotes above. It's one of the best things in life. Nothing but joy.

Did you click the abacab video? Phil's voice is pretty shot in this version, but I love the beginning in the radio station.

Ken Houghton

Trick of the Tail?? G-d! What's that from, watching the video for "Robbery, Assault and Battery" on The Midnight Special too many times?

(Though Duke is even worse; by that point, a Phil "Here's My Divorce Fax" Collins band. Little did Peter Gabriel realise the evil he was doing giving Collins lead vocals on "More Fool Me.")

Yes, I'm an old purist who would answer Nursery Cryme or Foxtrot (combined on the 8-track The Best: Genesis)or Selling England by the Pound, following that by pointing you to Steve Hackett's The Tokyo Tapes for "Los Endos" or or "Firth of Fifth" or even the strangely-overlooked-above "I Know What I Like (in your wardrobe)." (Not to mention, non-Genesis related, the only listenable version of Asia's "Heat of the Moment" ever recorded.)

Shhhhh. Do not make fun of my Genesis love. lol

I love Selling England by the Pound! First of all, *great* line/title. Secondly, great album. I love all the old stuff, too. But, I was only 14 (shut up, Cleek) when Trick of the Tail came out.

No one will ruin Genesis for me. No matter how hard you all try!

God, I hate the song "Heat of the Moment."

Brando

This is completely awesome. Kudos to you and BP/(Z)RM for getting your prog on.

BG if you are using iTunes, it is pretty easy to reconstitute ZRM's playlist order. Make a new playlist (choose "New Playlist" from the "File" pulldown menu, label it "music fish hates"). Drag all the songs he sent from your main library to this playlist. Once in the playlist, you can drag the songs up or down into whatever order you want.

label it "music fish hates"

LOL!

I play these songs DIRECTLY INTO MY AQUARIUM at all hours. Fish hate it, you know.

Ken, I was trying to keep the playlist to a realistic concert time frame, and some things just couldn't make the cut. FWIW, I Know What I Like was one of the last ones out.

"Old" purist indeed. Unfortunately, there were few to no chances for a small little zombie in the Midwest to see those old Foxtrot or SEBTP shows, or even one with Hackett in the lineup. I have, however, seen the re-creations by The Musical Box and Gabriel's fey drama club dropout theatrics notwithstanding, I still kind of feel that once the costumes were gone, the emphasis on musicianship was beneficial.

Hackett's cover of "Heat Of The Moment" remains inexplicable, and I present as evidence of a deep underlying vein of instability that makes Phil Collin's crimes pale in comparison. Plus, GTR.

YMMV.

Thanks Brando, we like it.

Next up: BG posts an objective comparison of Macs and PCs....

I know. Brando is a very nice person.

:)

I have no idea what this means.

blue girl

Also.

Macs rule. PCs drool.

"J.D. Considine's review of the album simply read, "SHT."."

blue girl

BP, I agree with you about the costumes. Although, I did love it when I was younger. I never even minded Phil's theatrics. But, that's the actress in me, I think. Even when I sang in bands, I'd put emphasis on things in the song - sort of like *acting it out* on stage. I was never one to stand there and clank away on a tambourine.

I am getting very tired of Typepad's delay displaying comments. We might as well be writing each other letters through snail mail!

Jaquandor: Yeah, that seemed weird to me too. But it looks like G-boys trimmed that baby to just under four minutes after the Invisible Touch tour, and the only live versions are of the shorter version.

Hey, works for me. You normally can only get these guys to hold it under nine minutes at gunpoint. A few shorter songs are OK.

Jaquandor

Since I've found a hotbed of Genesis fans here, can anybody tell me what the f*** the lyrics to "Domino" mean?!

zombie rotten mcdonald

no, but did you hear the Disturbed cover of Domino?

cleek

Yeah, Cleek. I said Trick of the Tail. Put that in your iPod and play it!

not until you can find a way to make me be 15 again!

zombie rotten mcdonald

oops, I screwed that one up. Disturbed did a cover of "Land of Confusion", not Domino.

mb

An excellent and eminently respectful to the original cover it was, too.

Thanks for the chills a couple of those vids did induce!

chris hayday

other than driving the last spike, that's a pretty good playlist.
