Phil Collins Rules


#1

Between 1984 and 1990, Collins had a string of 13 straight U.S. Top Ten hits. Collins made his debut solo album Face Value in 1981, which turned out to be a bigger hit than any Genesis album. Phil Collins is one of that very rare breed of artists who combine musical accessibility and overwhelming popularity with the respect of their most illustrious peers. Phil Collins is one of the worldâ??s best-loved male vocalists but also a fantastic rock and jazz drummer.

OMG!! SO FUNNY!

His talent crosses all boundries.

Obviously, he could have been an amazing rap artiste had he chosen to go that route.

You are so right IH. You can pretty much plug in anything you want into that blank space and it would be true: mathematician, painter, doctor, bodybuilder, astrophysicist, crocodile wrangler, fortune cookie writer, swashbuckler. The list goes on an on; just like Phil’s talent.

Here are some poignant lyrics about the plight of Mexican immigrants.

So sad.

Got out of bed, wasn’t feeling too good
With my wallet and my passport, a new pair of shoes
The sun is shining so I head for the park,
With a bottle of Tequila, and a new pack of cigarettes

I got a cousin and she got a friend,
Who thought that her aunt knew a man who could help
At his apartment I knocked on the door,
He wouldn’t come out until he got paid.
Now don’t tell anybody what I wanna do
If they find out you know that they’ll never let me through, cos

It’s no fun being an illegal alien, no
It’s no fun being an illegal alien

Down at the office had to fill out the forms
A pink one, a red one, the colours you choose,
Up to the counter to see what they think
They said “it doesn’t count man, it ain’t written in ink”.
I don’t trust anybody, least not around here, cos

It’s no fun being an illegal alien, I tell ya
It’s no fun being an illegal alien, no no no no no
It’s no fun being an illegal alien, I mean it when I tell ya that
It’s no fun being an illegal alien,
An illegal alien, O.K.

Consideration for your fellow man
Would not hurt anybody, it sure fits in with my plan
Over the border, there lies the promised land
Where everything comes easy, you just hold out your hand

Keep your suspicions, I’ve seen that look before
But I ain’t done nothing wrong now, is that such a suprise
But I’ve got a sister who’d be willing to oblige
She will do anything now to help me get to the outside

So don’t tell anybody what I wanna do
If they find out you know that they’ll never let me through, because

It’s no fun being an illegal alien, I tell ya
It’s no fun being an illegal alien, and it’s getting me down
It’s no fun being an illegal alien, no no no no no
It’s no fun being an illegal alien, yeah yeah yeah

It’s no fun (not much fun) being an illegal alien, I tell ya that
It’s no fun being an illegal alien, I tell ya
It’s no fun being an illegal alien, no no no
It’s no fun (not bloody much fun) being an illegal alien,
It’s no fun being an illegal alien, and that’s what I am.

I was getting to that, Edgy.

Combine his infinite talent, humor, with that raw sexuality he exudes… well, it’s just about as close to perfection as a man can get.

Take that, ID!
