Oh, Phil Collins, obviously this song is great. But my clearest memory of it is that somehow I was able to see the video for it, and once again, it makes the argument that music videos are absolutely unnecessary if you truly want to enjoy music. I remembered that a dog was involved in the video and at one point he pees on a guy’s leg. My memory was correct. But I did forget that someone else steps in dog shit and there is a fairly tight close up of said dog shit on someone’s shoe. Why, Phil Collins? This is a wonderful song that you sing effortlessly, and I especially love the horns in this, but for all of time, I’m going to remember this as the song with the dog who pees and shits everywhere. Please join me in eradicating music videos, Phil Collins. They are literally soiling the music.
