Peeps, here’s your so-you-can-wipe-off-that-grin Monday afternoon jam to continue with the relationships are hard theme.
The interesting thing for me about this song is that when I was a kid going to the school skating parties, the boys and girls would always skate together like this was a couples song.
“I’ve been waiting for this moment for all my life” — something magical was about to happen for them guys and girls skating out there in the dark.
But then I was always confused about Collins letting someone drown. It wasn’t until years later that I learned it’s definitely not a love song. It’s another of my favorites for sure but it’s the definition of marriage macabre.
Musically, the drums are center stage and who can resist their 3:15 mark? You know you love it.
