xx songs whose titles are not mentioned in the lyrics
« Thread started on: Aug 29th, 2017, 10:43am »

these are the genesis songs, if i'm not mistaken, whose titles are nowhere to be found in the lyrics.

stagnation, dusk, the knife, the musical box, for absent friends, the return of the giant hogweed, the fountain of salmacis, time table, can-utility and the coastliners, supper's ready, twilight alehouse, firth of fifth, aisle of plenty, fly on a windshield, broadway melody of 1974, the chamber of 32 doors, dance on a volcano, squonk, a trick of the tail, one for the vine, afterglow, pigeons, inside and out, down and out, undertow, ballad of big, snowbound, deep on the motherlode, the lady lies, vancouver, behind the lines, duchess, guide vocal, heathaze, evidence of automn.

i'm sure there must be some songs missing in the list i've made, and some that shouldn't be, but i've tried my best. wink

i don't like it when the chorus of a song consists in just the title being repeated a few times, i find it dull. genesis certainly didn't do that. cheesy

This is the one that surprised me! I thought it was there at the beginning of the second chorus, but no, he says "on my own tonight." Well I never cheesy


ETA: Pretty sure "One Man's Fool" is another one that hasn't been mentioned.

Was it you or was it me? Or was it he or she?

NB: despite what my name may suggest, I was not born in 1972 tongue

You're right -- I forgot about CAS.

Besides One Man's Fool, we can also add The Dividing Line (no, that exact phrase is not in the lyrics!).

If Dodo and Lurker are seen as two individual songs as the lyrics in the booklet suggest then Dodo is mentioned in the lyrics... but that's taking it a little far. wink

I was originally just going to list "Lurker" by itself but I'm so used to seeing both titles together that it didn't look right.

They are seemingly inseparable. I suppose one was never performed without the other but I'd be interested to be corrected. I can imagine Dodo switching into the rhythm track of Lurker, but then morphing into FYFM in the manner of the Behind The Lines segue on the 1982 tour.

I wouldn't know about that, but I do note that "Dodo" by itself was the B-side (I'm not sure where) of "No Reply at All." I've never heard it in that form so I don't know how it was ended. A quick fade perhaps?
