#60: "In the Air Tonight" - Phil Collins
Release Date: 1981
Director: Stuart Orme
Fun Fact: The myth that this song is about a drowning incident that Phil Collins witnessed is all a complete and utter fabrication - don't believe it!!
This song and video is incredibly iconic. Similar to my entry for "Sledgehammer" by Peter Gabriel though, this entry is because of how good the video is, rather than my love of the song.
And the video, actually isn't a technical genius of a video. But it's simple and absorbs you in. Sometimes the simplest of ideas are the best ones, and this video is an example of that. The majority of the video is Phil Collins' face in black and white, but you can't help but look at it. It's just a great video, and it matches the song to perfection.
