Curse You, Phil Collins!

I don't remember which song it was, though I could tell you that it post-Abacab, because I pretty much hate everything that he did after that. I can tell you that while I can be pee-shy on occasion, whatever insipid Phil Collins they played in the Sizzler bathroom, killed my stream...

Phil Collins is a stonecold whiz-killer and he must be stopped.

I will say that I won't follow anyone into the restroom, but Phil?...

In your case, I'm gonna make an exception and when you get everything lined up?...

I'm gonna treat you to a special acapella eighty decibel rendition of "One More Night," à la thrash metal style.

Like a river to the sea
I will always be with you
And if you sail away
I will follow you
Give me one more night, give me just one more night
Oh one more night, cos I cant wait forever

But is it Sedaris worthy? Or is more like Dave Barry on crack?

Phil is kind of a lame-wad, but I actually like "One More Night." Although I'd really like to hear a rock rendition of it. Maybe Daughtry will cover it. ;)

Whew. I thought you were going to say it was Sussudio or Easy Lover because I still love those two.

i'm not sure i get why they play music in the toilets... there's nothing more disconcerting than listening to the person in the stall next to you singing along to the music while... um, well... you know!

It's to drown out all the idiots gabbing on their mobiles.

I don't want to hear rock versions of Phil after Disturbed ruined "Land of Confusion."


When "Sussido" came out, I was in Italy and everyone laughed at him, unmercilessly. The word means "whisper." As far as "Easy Lover?" I only like the Phillip Bailey parts. Collins can't hang with Phillip, though few singers can.


Good question and...


...looks like Al answered it just about right.

Putting "One More Night" into our heads? What in God's name did we do to deserve that, Write?

They should just have the soothing sounds of waterfalls in there. No Phil, ever.

Absolutey...except the people that have those sound machines for when they go to bed, would fall asleep in the bathroom.
