    I open this topic to my question: What's your favorites tracks of ...But Seriously.


    My favorite song of the album for me and also my favorite song of his career was Another Day in Paradise. This song was a masterpiece and i love all about this song: the differents ambiances in the song (like the calm guitar), her dark vibe during all the song, her opening very strange, dark and mysterious, the beautiful vocals harmonies of David Crosby with the voice of Phil, the differents styles during this song (the drums, similar of In the Air Tonight, add a RnB beat at the last half of the song, the first half was more a pop/rock ballad), the interpretation very moody and calm of phil, her incredible sound, the chorus incredible (''Oh Think Twice, It's just Another Day for you and me in Paradise'' make me so touching and rest in head all the time). Her most original song of her album. In the lyrics, i apprecied the fact he talked about a huge problem of society in this song (here about the homeless, and the music video convey more this idea), like many songs of the album (That's just the Way it Is, Colours, Heat on the Street).


    PS: You have choice three songs max in the sondage

    have made some corrections and also changed the thread title to be in line with the Genesis album poll questions


    as for myself, it's obviously I Wish It Would Rain Down and All Of My Life ... an Saturday Night...

  • Thank you :)


    I have picked Colours, Something Happened and I Wish It Would Rain Down

  • That's Just The Way It Is, I Wish It Would Rain Down and Find A Way To My Heart were my 3 choices

    “Without music, life would be a mistake”

  • The album also had a great B-Side, You’ve Been In Love


    ok, around the world in 80 presets was also great 😎

    Yes, the three b-sides was very good. The ...But Seriously was her best period (i like all the songs of this period) and this album was my favorite of him. My favorite B-Side was That's How I Feel. Similar in the sound of Heat on the Street, this song was very beautiful, a incredible beat, more punch to Heat on the Street. I noted the presence of Steve Windwood in the organ in this song. Phil said in interview he played organ Hammond for three songs in recording sessions, but only one finished in the album (All of My Life). I know That's How I Feel was the second song that Steve Windwood play organ (i heard the organ Hammond during the end), but where is the third song then Steve play organ?

  • Hang in long enough

    Colours

    I wish It would rain down


    I also like Saturday night .... and All of my life


    But I find That's just the way ... and Do you remember rather boring.

  • Father To Son and Find A Way To My Heart for me.


    Hang In Long Enough and Something Happened.... ugh. Far too brash. Didn't like them when I listened to the album for the very first time, and they haven't aged well.


    The ballads lack that special something, too. All Of My Life and That's Just The Way It Is and the other one, I can't even bother to look up the names. Do You Remember. I'd rather not.


    Some songs are better... Colours, for example. Though the race/racism issue is still very relevant, I always felt this was Collins's South African song, and with apartheid gone, it kind of lost some raison d'être. I Wish It Would Rain Down is a good song, but I have gone off these big arrangements.


    Saturday Night and Heat On The Street weren't on my original vinyl, so they don't count ;)


    Having complained about all that, But Seriously is the only Collins album I bought when it came out.

    ...cried a voice in the crowd.

    SHOTWTH - agreed

    but Hang in long enough? That's as powerful and fresh as it used to be. Was great to hear that one live again during the last tour.
