Hi everyone! I hope your Monday was awesome! It was OK considering it’s Monday. 🙂 For some reason, I’ve been in the mood to listen to 80’s music today so…I’m taking you WAY back to 1981 (35 years ago!) with Phil Collins’ “In the Air Tonight.” Like many others, my favorite part of the entire song is the drum solo. Wikipedia describes the drum solo as “the sleekest, most melodramatic drum break in history.” I enjoy the whole song but the drum solo is the BEST part!
“In the Air Tonight” was an international hit. Wikipedia says the song climbed to the number two spot in the U.K. It was number one in the Netherlands and 19 in the U.S. Phil Collins wrote the song out of anger due to his divorce from his first wife, Andrea. “In the Air Tonight” has appeared in various movies, advertisement campaigns and TV shows. The movie and TV show that come to mind for me is “The Hangover” and “Miami Vice.” The song’s also appeared on the movie “Risky Business”, advertising campaigns by Michelob (one of my favorite beers by the way!), the U.K.’s Cadbury chocolate, a Grand Theft Auto video game, etc. This song will always be a classic! Have a great rest of the night/morning, everyone! I’ll be back Tuesday with a post or two.
