  • In addition to Clapton, I also love the fretless bass of Leland Sklar. Amazing playing on the entire album
  • As sad as the song is, the video is, in contrast, quite funny like a lot of his videos. Love the cameo from Jeffrey Tambor.
  • Phil Collins has been forgotten and I don't understand why. He was a big star back in the days. This song is the proof of how great he is.
  • Can't listen to this without crying especially at the end with Clapton on guitar. It even sounds like the guitar is crying. Sad but beautiful song.
  • ...
  • It sounds like 'Wish you were here' by Pink Floyd... Great song anyway
  • great track!
  • Bloody..... beeping rain........... not like.... but I do soooo like Phil, oh yes!
  • This song was a #1 in Canada for 6 weeks, among other foreign Countries, and had a popular guitar part played by Eric Clapton and a lengthy music video which had actor Jeffrey Tambor as a musical director for a stage play harshly judging Phil's singing talent. http://www.songfacts.com/detail.php?id=13638
