    Can't imagine what "pop" music would be like now if it were sang from the heart. Truly it was different back then. Great track and strong message.

    Collins' music always had strong social undertones to it. This is truly some of his finer work.

    @wings_of_wax: I agree with you, but I think the percussion is more similar to the closing track from PG's "Us". Still, "Both Sides" is a great album with amazing songs. ;)
