Arda Turan linked today according to the red echo

He was superb in Euro 2008.

10 years ago now, though.

Do you like Phil Collins? I've been a big Genesis fan ever since the release of their 1980 album, Duke. Before that, I really didn't understand any of their work. Too artsy, too intellectual. It was on Duke where Phil Collins' presence became more apparent. I think Invisible Touch was the group's undisputed masterpiece. It's an epic meditation on intangibility. At the same time, it deepens and enriches the meaning of the preceding three albums. Christy, take off your robe. Listen to the brilliant ensemble playing of Banks, Collins and Rutherford. You can practically hear every nuance of every instrument. Sabrina, remove your dress. In terms of lyrical craftsmanship, the sheer songwriting, this album hits a new peak of professionalism. Sabrina, why don't you, uh, dance a little. Take the lyrics to Land of Confusion. In this song, Phil Collins addresses the problems of abusive political authority. In Too Deep is the most moving pop song of the 1980s, about monogamy and commitment. The song is extremely uplifting. Their lyrics are as positive and affirmative as anything I've heard in rock. Christy, get down on your knees so Sabrina can see your asshole. Phil Collins' solo career seems to be more commercial and therefore more satisfying, in a narrower way. Especially songs like In the Air Tonight and Against All Odds. Sabrina, don't just stare at it, eat it. But I also think Phil Collins works best within the confines of the group, than as a solo artist, and I stress the word artist. This is Sussudio, a great, great song, a personal favourite.

I 'pulled' on FB the other night, when I started responding with American Psycho quotes when a girl I went to school with announced she was watching the film. 

Anyway, "Let's see Cenk Tosun's card..."

I actually think they became dad rock after Invisible Touch. Much better early and just after Gabriel left. Carpet Crawlers and Suppers Ready are things of beauty. Then there's ' The Cage', 'Cinema Show'... brilliant band with stuff for everyone really so these are just my preferences. Anyway has he signed yet or what?

Do you like Huey Lewis And The News?

Sure but my main point is he can't possibly be match fit having just been playing the tourist in London for the past week.


Not fit you say...
