I don't remember.

"Sussudio (Extended Version)" - Phil Collins

2 songs from a fantastic 80's album:
Born from an improvised lyric he thought up while diddling with his drum machine, "Sussudio" exploded on the charts the winter of 1985. '85 was a huge year for Collins due mostly to the success of the album this track is from, No Jacket Required. He also turned in a killer performance as a conman on the Miami Vice episode, "Phil The Shill" mostly opposite wannabe never-got-it-quite-right shiller, Izzie, played by Martin Ferrero. Collins also recorded  the number one song, "Separate Lives", with Marilyn Martin for the soundtrack to the movie "White Nights" starring Gregory Hines and Mikhail Baryshnikov.



 "Take Me Home (Extended Mix)" - Phil Collins

 This song is about a man in a mental institution so Collins says and was inspired by the movie "One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest". Artists contributing background vocals on this track: Sting and Peter Gabriel. Sting also sang on the track "Long Way To Go" for the No Jacket Required disc and it along with this song were both featured on Miami Vice. I do remember this song being edited for radio to shorten it from its original LP version and this was the third version that was available to consumers in early 1986. Now go diddle a drum machine.
