Your words are really very touching.
You summed it up perfectly.
It doesn't matter what the song is, it is how it has affected you as a person.

Yes, we can all get quite snobby about it and claim our favourite tracks are the complex ones, and snigger at anyone who says that any of the 'pop' tracks are their favourite.

My favourite albums are Trick and Wind, but Invisible Touch holds a special place in my heart because I was 12/13 years old in '86 and '87, I have really fond memories of my life at that time - good times, family members who were around then that are no longer......

It's what makes you feel good.

Aww, you guys are so nice. It's all true, everything I said. Yes, even though I found older Genesis a little while ago, it wasn't on purpose. I found out about that era when my parents brought home "Chapter and Verse". (That's also when I developed a crush on Tony...) But, we did not have a lot of any real "era" Genesis when I was young, so the only full albums we had where Trick, Wind, and I think Duke. So I listened to the minimal songs we had, and fell in love with what we had. When I got to listen to five man era and other songs off of the albums (Like Way of the World), it was years after and we finally had more music. I kind of had a better restart than my actual start..

Ok here goes....

Supper's Ready (the original from Foxtrot)
Musical Box
The Lamia
Dancing With The Moonlit Knight
Stagnation

Very nearly on there were: Fountain Of Salmacis, Watcher Of The Skies, In The Cage, The Knife, Cinema Show

Other notes. The Lamia: so beautiful, weird, incredible feel. Also, I eventually opted for Moonlit Knight (over Cinema Show) because of the "feelgood" factor I've always had when hearing that opening track - Gabriel's voice at the start and the prospect of the whole album to follow, it doesn't get much better than that. smiley

I think it depends on what you heard first. I'm not a fan of live albums and have never owned Seconds Out but whenever I hear PC singing a PG era Genesis song his little ad libs get on my nerves (singing "down , down, down" on the Lamb for instance). For me their voices are like chalk and cheese - like Gilmour trying to sing a Waters song which never quite sounds right either.

Anyway my five (for today at least)...

1. In the Cage (Selling England version)
2. Mad Man Moon
3. Blood on the Rooftops
4. Firth of Fifth (Selling England version)
5. In That Quiet Earth\Afterglow

Some that could be in tomorrow's top 5: Mama, Carpet Crawlers, Supper's Ready, Since I Lost You (this is harder than I thought!)

PS: my first post - please be gentle with me grin

After witnessing Genesis live for the first time on Saturday in Cardiff:

The Musical Box
Entangled
Firth Of Fifth
Supper's Ready
The Lamia

Before GR2 came out and seeing the tour, I think only FOF and SR would have been on my list shocked

I see things so differently now smiley

Slight artistic licence there. I saw Steve Hackett's show at Hammersmith and whilst brilliant, I wouldn't describe it as seeing Genesis. wink

Ha Ha! But it felt like it.

I actually can't imagine that seeing the band back in '73 (or whenever) could have been any better huh But I expect plenty will tell me that it was.... wink
