Forgotten Classic Video of the Week

My video picks aren't usually this timely but here you go—it's "Illegal Alien" by Genesis. I'm not sure the song is really considered a classic; it peaked just shy of the Top 40, but I do remember the vid being on pretty heavy rotation on MTV.



I'm assuming that Phil Collins was going for a Mexican vibe here, but maybe someone should have told him that he actually looked like a slightly disheveled Hitler before filming.

Genesis was the first band I identified as my "favorite band". I think their self-titled album, which this song comes from, was their last really good album. Ah, memories.

Ahh Genesis.. They always had the best videos. Not gonna lie . I watched the entire 2 disk collection the other day.It was quite enjoyable!

This is still one of my favorite Genesis tunes. Phil's toupee'/hat is one of the best video props of all time!

 

Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

My photo
I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
