Genesis The Cinema Show Meaning In English
Best Genesis Songs - Top Ten List. Darrell. The best Genesis songs ever written by the British rock group. The Top Ten. XW1. Supper's Readybest 2. It's even better than Bohemian Rhapsody. The only reason people don't have it held in such high regard is because 2. Another reason is because this song is not for the simple- minded.
It requires true music taste. Any idiot can listen to Bohemian Rhapsody. It's a great song, but require nothing special from the listener. This song, however, requires true musical taste and appreciation. Not any idiot can listen to this song. This song was almost the entire second side of Fox Trot. It was the first album with Phil Collins on drums and Steve Hackett on guitar.
It is similar in structure to the second side of Abbey Road, but far beyond that album in complexity and musicianship. Phil's drumming on Apocalypse in 9/8 is spectacular and Steve Hackett's Guitar work and Peters vocals are excellent. It is a metaphoric concept song of Christ's return as written in Revelations. Very moving and creative.
It's a true masterpiece! It's not a simple song, it's an opera! It makes your mind fly through special emotions..
V3. 5 Comments. 2Firth of Fifth. More than a song a masterpiece. Beautiful piano, organ solos and maybe one of the greatest guitar solo by Steve Hackett. Collins and Rutherford are dynamic and Peter Gabriel sounds really good. It could be 2nd after.
The song is a true masterpiece in its beautifully intricate piano opening, Gabriel's awesome singing and flute solo, Bank's powerful mellotron & organ exchange and then closing with one of the greatest and powerful melodic guitar (violin sounding) solo by Steve Hackett. Collins drumming is beyond superb and Ruthrford's powerful bass lines and bass petals are great as well. The lyrics are interesting as well and were by Tony Banks. One of the greatest Prog Rock songs ever. This song is right up there with Epitaph and Starless by King Crimson, Heart of the Sunrise and Awaken by Yes, and Jacob's Ladder and Cygnus x- 1 by Rush.
An absolutely epic song from an epic album Selling England By The Pound. I actually think this one is the 2nd best Genesis song, but I voted for it because it was 4th on the list. This song showcases the whole band at their best and everyone's playing complements each other, with Tony Banks' keyboards, Rutherford & Collins' rhythm section, Steve Hackett's fantastic guitar solo and Peter Gabriel's epic lyrics make me feel like I'm listening to something eternal and ancient. Listening to this right now for the first time, decided to see where on the list is it would be. Not surprised at all, bloody amazing song.
The instrumental sections are brilliant and he guitar solo reminds me of The Night Watch by King Crimson. This could be turning me into a genesis fan.
V1. 5 Comments. 3The Cinema Show. Genesis is MY FAVORITE BAND of all time! I am still hoping Phil is able to come back for one more tour with them. Got to see them on the MAMA TOUR and they were fantastic.
They had the best light show I have ever seen in concert. This is one of my favorite arrangements (The Cinema Show) along with countless others. Your just at peace listening to their music. Just loaded with great stuff. The range of emotions conveyed by this single song is remarkable. This song, along with the brief Aisle of Plenty, offer a fantastic conclusion to a fantastic album. This is the best definition of what Progressive rock is.
Masterpiece from beginning to end. V7 Comments. 4The Musical Box. This is the perfect example of a song played, instrumentally, at it's best. Great guitar work, great drums, and great keyboard playing. I'm just glad to see 'Invisible Touch' on the number one spot. Don't get me wrong, I like Phil Collins. He was a great drummer and even had great songs like 'Mama.
Again, I have nothing against Phil Collins, but I feel like they betrayed the musical structure of the band once the brilliant Peter Gabriel left. The people who vote 'Invisible Touch' as their best song don't know the real Genesis. I can't believe The Musical Box isn't a top 1.
Both a band and crowd favorite, played at pretty much every Genesis during the Peter Gabriel era, this is great work of hard- soft fast- slow dynamics. The layered 1. 2- strings overlaid with Gabriel- Collins counterpoint vocal duet that starts around 7: 4. Genesis. This is a great song! Without this song my life will be incomplete!
Great musical experience. Genesis at their best. V3 Comments. 5Carpet Crawlers. What? Land of confusion and Invisible Touch don't deserve to be that high, this is such an epic song, it has everything it takes to be one of the best Genesis song.
Should be a top five selection on every list! An intense, beautifully lyrical piece. A great song from one of the greatest concept albums of all time. Have you heard the live version from Seconds Out 1.
The studio version probably deserves to be here at Number 4 but the live version is, in my opinion, clearly at Number 1. About right where it belongs on the best of list. Love this band so much. It really is difficult to vote for one single song, when the have such a diverse portfolio. I chose Mama because it is a song that has always stuck with me; once I hear it, its in my mind for the entire day. Its just simply a masterpiece (not that the others are not).
Cut from the same cloth as Gabriel's work during this time and yet forward looking - perhaps the closest Genesis would ever be to melding the past with the present. This is the song that is ground zero for Gabriel Vs. Collins - its one of the very few tracks that both sides can agree on and it is for that reason that it should be included. Now if only the rest of that album was this good.. Truly a masterpiece, at least, in my opinion. What can I say, it was love at first sight. But, in the end, the live version from 1.
One listen and you are hooked! I love so many hits from Genesis but Land of Confusion always was/is special to me. Love it so much - Alexandr.
It doesn't get any better than this! Mike Rutherford had the perfect riff and bass line when he composed this amazing Rock anthem! Perfect - just perfect! My generation will put it right. Fantastic. Best song ever!
V8 Comments. 8The Knife. Awesome song. Many Genesis fans call it their favorite. Maybe its missing from the list because Collins wasn't with the band yet. Come on, The Knife at 2. This is the real Genesis. Invisible Touch is good, but it's not the real Genesis.
The real one is with Peter Gabriel. Anyway, Phil Collin's drums on this song are awesome! Phil Collins was an excellent drumer. The guitar work on this song is also excellent, along with Peter Gabriel's vocals. Phill Collins was not even with this band in 1.
This would do well as a Hunger Games anthem. My 1. 9 year old daughter agrees; thus proving that Genesis is timeless, as is all great music. V3 Comments. 9Dancing With the Moonlit Knight.
This is the definition of a perfect song; it's perfect. Despite being 8 minutes long (short for an epic), it's epic. The music is amazing and Peter Gabriel's voice wonderfully drives you through the music. I love the part where it goes .
It goes in all directions at once while maintaining full composure. Excellent! I would rate this in the top 4 but #8 is close as well. Unbelievable musicianship. This is one of the true Genesis Masterpieces. The fact I had to add this myself is crazy there best song by far. V4 Comments. 10. In The Cagegreat musical technics, Rhythm- out- perfomer in second part.. However, it's the one song that sends a live crowd over the top when they play it.
A song that bridges Gabriel and Collins era Genesis. Brilliant. This song should Be on nummer 2. So supper's ready (seconds out version), the cage, cinema show (seconds out version) firth of fifth, musical box, carpet crawlers, moonlit knight, home by the sea I & II, one for the fine, ripples, the knife, mad man moon. Second best Genesis song. Absolutely masterpiece. V1 Comment. The Contenders.
Invisible Touch. It's an epic meditation on intangibility. At the same time, it deepens and enriches the meaning of the preceding three albums. It has a lively tune and a catchy chorus.
It's so good! It was between this and I can't dance. To be fair all of genesis's songs are awesome! I can relate to this song. V8 Comments. 12. Entangled. Listen for the Glockenspiel on this gem..
Fantastic. I want this song to be played at my funerals. Sublime last 2 minutes. Los Endos. This is a phenomenal instrumental that is so powerful and moving.
It is a great road song. When Genesis tied this with the drum duet and 'Dance on a Volcano' it became the perfect song. I can listen to it all day and night long. It makes you want more! A very atmospheric and uplifting instrumental. Great way to close out a great album. I also love the nod to Supper's Ready: .
Firth of fifth has such a great guitare solo, Supper's is so great, the end of Entangled is so beautiful and the second part of the Cinema show is so amazing.. Thanks mr Hackett! Duke's Travels. Very underrated but probably appropriate to be in top 1. Genesis works. The drumming throughout Duke is really strong..
V1 Comment. 16. Watcher of the Skies. I would put it number 3 after supper's ready and fifth of fifth, the rhythm is so powerful and it charges you more than any other song, the intro is just some masterpiece. Every time I listen to it I just keep replaying. Just listen and you'll understand exactly why this song should be on this list. It should, in my opinion, be higher, at least near the top ten..
This song showcases the band's skill, how they can play above and beyond most bands. After listening to it so many times, I began to realise that Ripples may actually be about Helen of Troy. One of the all time greats. For me Ripples has become one of the greatest. Beautiful song and only beaten by the one, Firth of Fifth. Utterly glorious.
I will NEVER disrespect Phil Collins again. NEVER. Beautiful song, also in this time. V2 Comments. 18. Turn It On Again.
