    Re: Top 5 Genesis Songs

    Good list but "Tonight, tonight, tonight" would be on my list as #5.

    No son of mine? :P
    Are we talking Phil Collins Genesis or Peter Gabriele Genesis?

    Re: Top 5 Genesis Songs

    It's weird because I'm not a big Phil Collins fan, but there are a number of good genesis songs from when he was in the band like Man on the Corner, Tonight, Tonight, Tonight..Land of Confusion, No Son of Mine, Home by the Sea, That's All, Abacab, Misunderstanding.


    Phil Collins' Genesis was way more marketable to the masses, but Peter Gabriel's Genesis from the 70s was not bad at all either. Totally different though. I love when bands are like this. Fleetwood Mac is just like this, although Fleetwood Mac before Stevie Nicks was still really good. The progressive Genesis is harder to get into, but songs like The Knife and Back in NYC are not bad at all.

    I had to look this song up. It didnt sound familiar and not particularly great on first blush.

    Genesis, Invisible Touch and We cant Dance are all pretty good. No idea on top 5. Love the land of confusion video though.


    Nothing to see here mods. Keep moving.

    Mixing in some Phil Collins with the Genesis, but some good ones not listed so far:

    Jesus He Knows Me
    Domino
    I Wish It Would Rain Down
