Song #215: "Just A Job To Do"--Genesis (1983)

In case you didn't know, since he made our countdown as a solo artist back on Saturday, Phil Collins makes a grand total of sixteen appearances in the Top 500, six solo, and ten with his buddies from Genesis.

Releasing "Genesis", their 12th studio album, in the fall of 1983, the guys produced a ton of great music on this release, but nowadays on classic hits or classic rock radio, all you ever hear is "That's All", which has become tired and overplayed. There are so many other great tunes on that album, and side one is close to a masterpiece.

Today's song is the third on side two, and, generally, when I stopped listening, as cuts #9 and #10 didn't do much for me. This is a GREAT song to jam to, especially if you're in the car for a long drive and need to get rid of some frustration. Just turn it up to "10" and sing along as loud as you can.  :)

Just remember, however, to not use this song to work yourself up over someone you are upset with. Not the way to go.  :)
