I told Casey the other day, “I think I really like Phil Collins.”
I mean, he’s got some great songs!
But then I realized that I can’t tell him and Peter Gabriel apart.
Now, in all fairness they were both in Genesis together. But certainly some of you are scratching your heads at this notion. I know, I know!
Do I like Phil Collins or do I think I like Phil but really I’m just singing Peter?
I grew up in the 80s with two older sisters so I definitely heard my share of Depeche Mode, the Cure, Duran Duran, Pet Shop Boys, Marc Almond, Madonna, Cindi Lauper, etc..
I love the 80s.
I went to a George Michael concert 2 years ago and forgot I was in my early 30s, and that GM was gay–since he was clearly singing right at me.
But with all that 80s music in our house, I don’t recall much Phil Collins. It was so middle aged mom.
I guess I am that middle aged mom now.
So it’s okay to admit that you enjoy a little Su-su-sussudio? and you get emotional listening to him (Phil?) belt out “take a look at me now-ow-ow”….(while thinking about the time Scott sang it on American Idol and referenced his father who never believed in him).
So Casey decided to give me a little quiz, to see if I could tell Phil and Peter songs apart.
He picked 15 songs, pulled them up one-by-one on iTunes and I had to guess who was singing.
Phil vs. Peter.
It wasn’t easy. And I did horrible–missed half of them.
Then I had my younger brother take the quiz.
And he got all but one correct!
Did we grow up in the same house?
So uh, since the post is already random enough….you want to take the Phil vs. Peter quiz?
I have a pdf link for you with a list of the songs. BUT let someone else click on the link and conduct the quiz for you. No fair peeking at the answers ahead of time.
(Click HERE for the quiz).
Let me know how you do!
Tonight, tonight, to-ni-ight. Woa-oah.
