"Speaking of music..."
 
   LAST EDITED ON Feb-05-16 AT 03:04 PM (EST)
 
Another thing I'd sort of forgotten about since the last time I read through NXE is what a pronounced Genesis axis runs through the series musically. I mean, yes, the opening song is one of theirs, but beyond that, almost every track on Invisible Touch is identified with one part or another of the series in my head. There's also quite a lot of Phil Collins's '80s solo work in there, in spirit if not citation. Post-Genesis Peter Gabriel, too, come to think of it!

I note this publicly because it has become fashionable for my contemporaries to dis Collins lately, for reasons I can only assume have something to do with Ironic Gen-Xers embarrassingly aping Millennial Disdain, and well, fuck that. I'm stickin' by him.

Well I've been waiting, waiting here so long
But thinking nothing, nothing could go wrong
Well now I know
She has a built-in ability
To take everything she sees
And now it seems I'm falling, falling for her

She seems to have an invisible touch
She reaches in and grabs right hold of your heart
She seems to have an invisible touch
It takes control and slowly tears you apart

Well I don't really know her
I only know her name
But she crawls under your skin
You're never quite the same
And now I know
She's got something you just can't trust
It's something mysterious
And now it seems I'm falling, falling for her

She seems to have an invisible touch
She reaches in and grabs right hold of your heart
She seems to have an invisible touch
It takes control and slowly tears you apart

She seems to have an invisible touch
She reaches in and grabs right hold of your heart
She seems to have an invisible touch
It takes control and slowly tears you apart

Well she don't like losing
To her it's still a game
And though she will mess up your life
You want her just the same
And now I know
She has the built-in ability
To take everything she sees
And now it seems I've fallen, fallen for her

She seems to have an invisible touch
She reaches in and grabs right hold of your heart
She seems to have an invisible touch
It takes control and slowly tears you apart

She seems to have an invisible touch
She seems to have an invisible touch
She seems to have an invisible touch
She seems to have an invisible touch
