Genesis started in the 70s but I think it got better in the 80s as it aged. And this is an example of that. One of my favorite genesis songs.

Powerful song

Anyone know if Phil Collins has said this is about child or spousal abuse? The lyrics would strongly suggest it does, but I've never read or heard any of his comments regarding it.

He had a bad dad. Sad. Not glad.

Powerful song!

Powerful, whether it's true or not. I sure hope it's not, though.

I thought the lyrics in the chorus were, "You know son, you're no son of mine."

Painful song. I hope this isn't written from personal experiences, but if it is true, the clown who rejected Phil who sounds like a great father and husband on his tours, was a loser.

I hope Phil didn't write songs based on personal experiences. I guess in this case, it would just be sad. But imagine if "Just a Job I Do" was based on personal experience!

This is Genesis in which Phil Collins replaced Peter Gabriel in the mid-1970s

Hay! this song is great. I used to listen to it from a cd called "ODE to Bruce Spreingstein " Does any one know who the artist was that sang this song on that cd?
Report as inappropriate
Isn't that personal? Would it change your mind how you listened to his creation of music? Why?
Report as inappropriate
Does anyone know if Phil had a personal connection to this song? What was his inspiration for writing this song?
