TotW [06/01/12 - 12/01/12]: TONY BANKS & ANDY TAYLOR - Still It Takes Me By Surprise

TONY BANKS & ANDY TAYLOR - Still It Takes Me By Surprise

year: 1991
album: Still [review]
working title: unknown
credits: Banks
Lyrics: yes
length: 6:27
musicians: Tony Banks, Andy Taylor, Daryl Stuermer, Pino Palladino
played live: never
known cover versions: none

Tony Banks' solo album Still was overshadowed (again) by the then upcoming Genesis album We Can't Dance. Still saw Banks move further towards the mainstream without hiding his musical roots completely. The album contains many pop hits with guest musicians such as Fish and Nik Kershaw, but it also has typical Banks songs with an unmistakable Genesis touch. One of these is Still It Takes Me By Surprise, the album's title song, as it were. It resembles other songs in a way such as The Cinema Show, Ripples or Home By The Sea...
... cried a voice in the crowd.
