I'm so happy that Genesis finally got inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. I can finally say to people that my favorite band got their proper recognition among the "rock establishment."

I prefer Genesis when Peter Gabriel was in the band, however, I love most of the stuff the band did with Phil Collins. That's right - I even like some of the tracks on "Invisible Touch" and "We Can't Dance!" Here are my favorite songs from the two eras of the band:

Peter Gabriel era:


YouTube - The Carpet Crawlers by Genesis

Phil Collins progressive rock era:


YouTube - Genesis - Squonk - Six Hours Live

Phil Collins pop era:


YouTube - Genesis - Mama (1983)

I also happen to think that "Mama" is one of the best music videos of all time.

Hey Desertsun.....I love both groups....but give a slight edge to RENAISSANCE....especially since they recorded many more great albums relative to the few by GENESIS and Phil's singing voice cannot match the GREAT Annie Haslam(I think she is in a class by herself). Thanx for RIPPLES.....I had NO idea she had recorded her own version. .

Give me Wind and Wuthering on a deserted island with only one CD to play. The next one can be Renaissance. Did you know Annie owns an art store in New Hope, Pa.? She is always there if you want to meet up with her and she is one hell of an Artist too. It's a neat (but mostly gay) little Delaware River town full of quirky Hippy stores to browse or just sit at a sidewalk coffee cafe.

I love WIND AND WUTHERING too and TRICK OF THE TAIL. I have a friend who knows ANNIE personally from his performing days; so I knew about her artwork. The mostly gay is fine with me ....I would love to meet her in person, as I feel she has the world's best singing voice.....after hearing her sing MOTHER RUSSIA twice, live in concert.....there is no comparison as their live performance is as good as a studio version. However here are three more of GENESIS'S best songs.....that I can find....IMHO>>>>>

YouTube - Genesis - One for the Vine


YouTube - Genesis - All in a Mouse's Night


YouTube - Genesis - Eleventh Earl of Mar

There are more songs, but I stuck with WIND AND WUTHERING.......a bit better than TRICK OF THE TAIL.....WAW was my first GENESIS album and I just went nuts over their music when I first heard them in college. .

i'm resurrecting this thread because of the awesome-ness that is (or was since phil collins retired from the business) genesis.

i really like the fact that both peter gabriel and phil collins are fantastic singers that came from the band that i can't really choose a favorite. at the moment, i only have the phil collins era of genesis, but when i get more money i will definitely get the rest of them (and there are like so many albums and EPs).

i think the reason why they became more pop in their later albums was probably because of their growing popularity in the U.S. not that it's a bad thing, but it was different from those who followed them since the beginning.

i've been jammin' this song ... good song.

(Once Gabriel left the band I have a hard time thinking of them as Genesis.)

One of the prettiest songs Genesis ever did.



Genesis - Anyway - YouTube

One of the most interesting, kind of creepy, kind of erotic, and one of the most unique:



Genesis - The Lamia - YouTube


The classic Genesis crescendo is evident in this song:


Genesis - Can-Utility and the Coastliners - YouTube
