(Jubilee Guilty Pleasure!) Video of the Moment #831: Phil Collins

Editor’s note: do not adjust your screen. Yes, we’re airing some of our (and some of your!) favourite song guilty pleasures in video form this Jubilee weekend. The bands were featuring are largely not the kind we write about here on TGTF, but we wanted to do something new and cool over this 4-day weekend. Come along for the crazy ride and enjoy.

I’m refraining from using the obvious source location of this band and their biggest hit that Ben suggested and just let it speak for itself. Surely the only song to include the foods “mussels” and “vegemite” in its lyrics, take it away, Men at Work and one of the kookiest videos ever made.

There seems to be a lot of misplaced hate for Phil Collins out there. Why all the hate, people? Except maybe some people can’t stand that a man shorter and balder than you is infinitely more talented and richer than you will ever be? Beyond Genesis and his own mega career over the years, once Phil got into the Disney tunes, he assured his cheese status forever. I’m glad Ben suggested this one because it got me to thinking to those days when I tried to commit these lyrics to memory and until a cousin pointed it out was incorrectly singing,”Stu-Stu-Studio!” Ah yes, those were the days.
