xx Blood on the Rooftops quote in IKWIL [Live]
« Thread started on: Oct 26th, 2017, 01:40am »

Fans have long said that Mike Rutherford plays a quote from Blood on the Rooftops in I Know What I Like from Seconds Out, but I cannot hear it at all. I can hear Stagnation, of course, and possibly Tony playing the opening riff from Visions of Angels on the ARP Pro Soloist. Can anyone shed some light?

Here's where you'll find the various song quotes in IKWIL from SO:

5:03 - 5:12 - Dancing With The Moonlit Knight
5:36 - 5:57 - Stagnation
5:59 - 6:05 - Visions of Angels
6:29 - 6:40 - Blood on the Rooftops

I think your confusion may come partly from being told that Mike plays the BOTR quote. Actually, all of the song quotes are played by Steve, Tony or both.

Ah, got it. So they're playing the tune that comes after the chorus on that cor anglais-y sound (from the ARP Pro Soloist). I swear I kept reading that Mike was playing the bass line from BOTR. Oh well. That said, I still had to search through BOTR to find that melody, even though I've listened to both those songs over 100 times. I guess it didn't click for me.

Thanks for your help!!

I thought it was cool that they still included the BotR quote in the 2007 tour version of IKWIL.

This one took years to place! I knew that melody sounded familiar & very Genesis-y, but I couldn’t figure it out.. I wonder if they remembered what it was from on the ‘07 tour..

Wow... even after having owned SO for 30+ years, I've never noticed the BotR quote or the VoA one. Thanks!
cool
