Of his cinderella first solo album “Face Value” forty years ago, Phil Collins recalls the real-life betrayal and heartbreak which inspired “In the Air Tonight”, “I Missed Again”; and why he did not include another original, “How Can You Sit There?”, on Face Value nor it’s follow up, Hello I Must Be Going, but opted instead to give it to the soundtrack of the 1984 movie Against All Odds, going on to become Phil Collins’ first #1 hit.

It happened to Elton John, Rod Stewart, Billy Joel, Bruce Springsteen, Bryan Adams, Sting, and most recently U2: US radio and music video outlets overplaying the hits by these most popular musicians, in the programmers’ misguided attempts at gaining a bigger audience. But the unfortunate by-product is that these listeners/viewers burn out on the saturation repetition to the peril of the musicians, and the predictable backlash unfortunately is misdirected at the musicians, who had no control over how their songs were appropriated. No one on the planet knows this better now than my guest Phil Collins.
