Thumbs up to some decent music being listened to! Rather a fan of the "poppy" (so post-Gabriel) Genesis stuff and of Collins generally, although some of Gabriel's older standalone stuff gets some good playtime in the car too. If I was stranded on an island with only 3 discographies available to me, Genesis and Queen would be 2 of them.

Fantastic - welcome to the iPod age! Instead of 8 Desert Island Discs we have entire discographies. I assume the MP3 player wasn't the "luxary item". And for book - Kindle?

Oddly enough I don't think I could pick a 3rd from discographies. It'd have to be a compilation. A large collection of (yes, slight change in taste/genre, but some might see the link) Tiesto, Corsten, PvD, Oakenfold, Armin van Buuren, Airscape, Solar Stone and Rank 1 tracks would probably be it.
My musical taste shifts around my mood though. My car is currently playing through a collection of 80's awesomeness ranging from the aforementioned two groups toBonnie Tyler, Harold Faltermeyer, Soft Cell and loads of other cheesy greats.

Pah! You make the rules and then you just cynically BREAK them. DAMN YOUR EYES sir!!!!
Come on spit it out, one more, just one. Who (The) will they be?

If push comes to shove, then I think I could do with something like Hans Zimmer. That'd tick a few boxes for me

I saw Genesis at the NEC back in the early 80's I think - Prince Charles and Diana were there, I remember that.
Saw Phil Collins at Wembley but we were so far back, and the video screens were way out of sync, that it wasn't great
I'd take Genesis to a desert island, and Frank Turner (possibly in person, he's quite cute!) but Queen would be a dastardly form of punishment!
Who would be my third? Hmmm. That's very difficult.
A seventies compilation maybe to remind me of my youth?
A bit of Elbow? Maroon 5? Massive Attack? Portishead? Zep? Meatloaf?
Dunno - choice is too big
And then there is the classical genre as well....

If we're talking "Desert Island Disographies" then my list would be headed up by R.E.M. and then the Crowded House/Split Enz family. Third? If someone put a gun to my head and forced me to choose - probably Queen (and various off-shoots). But I'd be so disappointed in all the great music I'll be leaving behind
I actually sat down and created a playlist - 10 songs each from 10 artists that I thought best summed up my core musical tastes. Here's the artists...
Toad The Wet Sprocket
I look at the list and can't help thinking of all the great bands that are missing from it! Rolling Stones, Roxette, Pink Floyd, Dire Straits, The Kinks, T Rex, ..., ...
The whole concept of Desert Island Discs is a form of torture. How do you choose just 8 songs?

Back on topic, please. Thanks.

As stated - Carpet Crawl from their earlier stuff
The later stuff - Duke is very good
As for PC - In the Air Tonight
30th April 2014, 09:05 AM #27
Okay, sticking with Genesis, I assume I can expand out to related acts? Best/Favourites...
Genesis - No Son of Mine
Phil - Another Day In Paradise
Peter - Solsbury Hill
Mike - Someone Always Hates Someone
Tony - Still Takes Me By Surprise
Honory Mention to Siltskin (Ray Wilson) - Inside.
30th April 2014, 09:25 AM #28
PG - Sledgehammer
T Banks Lucky Me
S Hackett any track - they are all great
