 1   Supper's Ready- The Genesis Music Board / Re: Match of the day  on: Today at 1:31pm
Started by Kerry95 | Post by HENRY
I would say that over time the band became less fond of the song. They liked it enough back then to record and release it.

One thing to note is that the band had become very popular in the U.K by this period, being voted top band in a few magazine polls. So the relative success of the EP shouldn't be too surprising.

This was always an odd exclusion as it's one of the only singles they released that was never performed even once. It doesn't make sense why either because it was a big hit in the US and I can't imagine it being difficult to perform. Was it ever even rehearsed during the Mama Tour?


How has this question degenerated into such a slanging matchhuh

Please guys - enough.

Thank you!

Just discovered this clip. Does anyone else think Phil looks a bit like he doesn't know who Neil is when he addresses him as Joan? I'm thinking he probably didn't watch much TV back then.


Haha, Status Quo obviously recognised Neil even if Phil looked a bit dubious - although at least Neil wasn’t the Young One who said “I’m so bored I might as well be listening to Genesis” laugh

I don't understand the band's embarrassment at Match Of The Day at all - it's a nice tune, with a quirky lyric.

I can understand why they aren't fond of Me And Virgil, which suffers from poor production as much as anything (I know they were trying to emulate The Band, but still...). (They must have originally liked the song, since they played it a couple of times on the Abacab tour I believe.)

I think Kerry means that at the time of its release, it was their biggest hit to that point. They have of course had higher placing singles since.


Duh, of course. Dork moment embarassed Yea, it's interesting that song is always "overlooked". The Turn It On Again Tour Edition compilation includes Pigeons and Inside And Out at least, all other official best of compilations omitted the whole EP (except Archives 2). For comparison, Paperlate was included in both TIOA Tour Edition and the Platinum Collection.

And yes, the lead track of an EP is the first song on it so Match Of The Day was the lead track. Now if any of our statisticians could find out how much air play the song (or the other two off STP) received, I'd highly interested to learn more.


I'd love to know which of the three tracks picked up most radio play, but I'd be surprised if there's any statistical info from then. Maybe someone who was around at the time (I was, but only ten and three years away from discovering the band) might remember what was getting airplay.
