Great tune as well as unforgettable video.Real big with those of us who belonged to the MTV generation back in the 1980's.

His first solo album wasn't bad at all. Heavy on the pop, but a pretty good smattering of funk as well.

A perfect example:
Removed dead video
This is a pretty good cut from that cd. Easily my favorite. Must be the banjo:




This is my fave solo cut




He lost me after that. The same fate that afflicted Sir Elton. Either boredom, creative bankruptcy, complacency, I don't know. Just started sound really bland.

I Don't Care Anymore

Same here, easily my favorite song in Phil's solo efforts. It really ****** me off that the song isn't included on any of his "Best of" releases or the box set (which isn't really a true box set). :mad

Against All Odds is great! :grinthumb

I don't know... maybe it's just me but I like a lot of his solo songs such as I Wish It Would Rain Down, Something Happened On My Way To Heaven, Sussudio, Two Hearts, True Colours (Cyndi Lauper song), Both Sides Of The Story, Everyday, Dance Into The Light, Strangers Like Me, You'll Be In My Heart and so on. I don't mind even Another Day In Paradise. Call it 80s nostalgia maybe.

I love his solo career. I didn't even know he was with Genesis when I first heard him. I like Genesis also, but I think he does great on his own also. :grinthumb

Another song of his that I find to be pretty epic and it's probably my 2nd favorite song by Phil is the track he collaborated on with Eric Clapton. By the way, Clapton's playing is VERY heartfelt if you ask me. Some of his best stuff of the last 25 years (IMHO).


I Wish It Would Rain Down


Official video with the goofy intro. The actual music doesn't start until the 2:30 mark. THe video is kinda funny though, especially where they have "Bill Collins" face inserted into some iconic newspaper clippings as well as some historic movies and pictures. :)

Another one of Phil's goofy story-telling videos. He did have a knack for this sort of thing back in the 80's. :)

Wow! Wow! Wow! :grinthumb

Even though this one was with Genesis, I thought it was funny. :D
