    Should we prosecute Phil Collins?

    For his crimes against 80s music?

    Exhibit A:
    There's this girl that's been on my mind
    All the time, Su-Sussudio
    Oh oh
    Now she don't even know my name
    But I think she likes me just the same
    Su-Sussudio
    Woah oh

    I mean Genesis take some of the blame for hiring their drummer as a lead singer replacement. Jeez, couldn't you have put an add in the paper at least?


    I don't think that a lynch mob is any justice to be considered. But surely criminal charges should be long overdue.

    And it gets worse. A litany of bland annoying songs that all sound the same just played backward or sideways with dreary lyrics.

    Truly punishment has been delayed too long?

    Problem is, what next? Bryan Adams? And heaven forbid I should mention Nickleback? Chris deBurgh...
    Hmmmm, try a bit of no nonsense T Rex to calm the farm...

    Whilst not a massive Genesis fan, nor a Massive Phil Collins fan, I think your accusation is unfounded, Musically there is a lot of very interesting (but subtle) things in his Music.


    And let us not forget, without Phil Collins, we wouldn't have a Man in a Gorilla suit playing the breakdown from 'In the air tonight'
    Physics; Thou art a cruel, heartless Bitch-of-a-Mistress

    Genesis was weird and abstract. Try reading the centre art/storyof a Lamb lies down on Broadway. Pre Collins of course.

    Genesis Collin's era was pop pulp, bland boring McDonald's music for 2ZM etc radio, . Then it got worse when he went solo, played every hour on the hour. Fuck it was miserable and made you despair for the future of humanity where the music was annoying as the adds.

    Phil Collins never wrote lyrics like this

    I like your stories
    I love your gun
    Shooting out truck tires
    Sounds like loads and loads of fun

    . .,

    I'm about to drop
    My head's a mess
    The only salvation is
    I'll never see you again


    You give me head
    It makes it worse
    Take out your fuckin' retainer
    Put it in your purse


    I'm too drunk to fuck
    You're to drunk to fuck


    Too drunk to fuck

    Do you Remember?
    Against all odds (Take a look at me now)
    That's just the way it is
    You can't hurry love
    It's a groovy kind of love.


    Nah. You just can't defend that utter tripe!

    I like a few of his songs.

    If you want meaningful lyrics though, ya can't beat some of the thrash metal bands.


    I see you had your mind all made up you group of pitiful liars.
    Before I woke to face the day, your master plan transpired.
    Something told me, this job had more to meet the eye.
    My song is not believed?
    My words somewhat deceiving?
    Now I'm unwhole.
    You've waged a war of nerves
    But you can't crush the kingdom
    Can't be what your idols are.
    Can't leave the scar.
    You cry for compensation.
    I ask you please just give us
    5 minutes alone
    I read your eyes, your mind was made up.
    You took me for
    A fool.
    You used complexion of my skin for a counter
    Rascist tool.
    You can't burn me, I've spilled my guts out
    In the past.
    Taken advantage of because you know where
    I've come (from) my past.
    You've waged a war of nerves
    But you can't crush the kingdom
    Can't be what your idols are.
    Can't leave the scar.
    You cry for compensation.
    I ask you please just give us
    5 minutes alone

    This is XTC's Melt the guns. Was going to paste on the firearms thread but didn't want to start another wave of self righteous whining...
    Programmes of violence,
    As entertainment,
    Brings the disease into your room.
    We know the germ,
    Which is man-made in metal,
    Is really a key to your own tomb.
    Prevention is better than cure,
    Bad apples affecting the pure,
    You'll gather your senses I'm sure
    Then agree to,
    Melt the guns,
    Melt the guns,
    Melt the guns,
    And never more to fire them.
    Melt the guns,
    Melt the guns,
    Melt the guns,
    And never more desire them.
    Children will want them,
    Mothers supply them,
    As long as your killers are heroes.
    And all the media
    Will fiddle while Rome burns,
    Acting like modern-time Neros.
    Prevention is better than cure,
    Bad apples affecting the pure,
    You'll gather your senses I'm sure
    Then agree to,
    Melt the guns,
    Melt the guns,
    Melt the guns,
    And never more to fire them.
    Melt the guns,
    Melt the guns,
    Melt the guns,
    And never more desire them.
    I'm speaking to the Justice League of America.
    The you S of A,
    Hey you,
    Yes you in particular!
    When it comes to the judgement day and you're standing at the gates with your weaponry,
    You dead go down on one knee,
    Clasp your hands in prayer and start quoting me,
    'cause we say...
    Our father we've managed to contain the epidemic in one place, now,
    Let's hope they shoot themselves instead of others,
    Help to civilize the race now.
    We've trapped the cause of the plague,
    In the land of the free and the home of the brave.
    If we listen quietly we can hear them shooting from grave to grave.
    You ought to,
    Melt the guns,
    Melt the guns,
    Melt the guns,
    And never more to fire them.
    Melt the guns,
    Melt the guns,
    Melt the guns,
    And never more desire them.

    I believe it's a myth that Nero fiddled while (a bit of) Rome burned. He was away, although he did play musical instruments which was looked down upon as a common thing and quite un-emporor like.

    80s radio was a shit smear of dreadful with playlists near single digits repeated several times a day by cynical broadcasters playing to the lowest common denominator while the rest of us suffered or tried to afford more records and furiously tape them in real time so music could be enjoyed not endured. Pity the poor shop workers.

    And Phil Collins was the poster boy of cynical formulaic pulp pop. And that is why he must be brought to justice like a despotic dictator finally brought to heel.
