genesis

'the lamb lies down on broadway,' by genesis.

i've been listening to this album for more than 20 years, but never really knew the names of the songs. i would crank it, full volume in my collegiate studio at 4am, when no one was there. i even inadvertently stole the cassette tape of said album from one of my fellow art students, because i listened to it CONSTANTLY, and must've stuck it in my stash without realizing.

when chuck heard i was listening to it tonight, he said.....oh, my favorite song on that album is:
'silent sorrow in empty boats.'

i love the song so much more now, for SO many reasons....

Chuck is a big Genesis fan as I am sure you know. I am also. I have never listened to that song though. I do not think Phil was the singer in Genesis but I sure like Phil, he has some serious musical talent.

And one of my all time favorite albums is the Genesis live album "Second's Out," it's probably the first album I have ever worn out from too much playing.

One of my favorite songs of Genesis is Home By the Sea.

Isn't that the most incredible song? And to think I used to listen to it on my turntable, trying to hear all the subleties through hiss and pops.

Well I hope Dean reads your comment and sees that YouTube video, since that's his favorite Genesis/Phil Collins song.

Thank's for finding that song sweetie!

Then you're going to love this:

It was the last tour of the original band. Peter's on vocals (and theatrics), Phil's on drums. I was at this show... I was a very young man. I'm particularly fond of 'Hairless Heart', a gorgeously sad instrumental...
