Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 04/11/2018 – Take a look at me now.

img_1345-3Helen’s theme for SLS this week is take/taking. Fancy joining in with this great way of listening to some old favourites, and, often, some new music? If so, you can see all of the entries here and read all about the way to get involved.

This week I’ve chosen a song from Phil Collins,  written for the movie of the same name, “Against All Odds”. The song is better known as “Take a look at me now”.

Originally titled “How Can You Just Sit There?”, the song was initially from the sessions for Collins’ debut solo album Face Value (1981). Collins wrote the song, while Arif Mardin produced it.  The piano performance is by New York musician Rob Mounsey. Piano, keyboard bass, and a string section, arranged and conducted by Mardin, were recorded at RCA Studios, New York, while Collins recorded vocals and drums in Los Angeles.

The video has a hunky male form for those who are interested in that sort of thing. Yes, I’m thinking of you Sandra!

Lyrics are on the video too! Enjoy.

  1. When i was a teen, I found a cassette of Phil Collins greatest hits “Live” at a swap meet and thought I’d struck gold, LOL. This was, of course, part of that collection. I think this might be the first time I’ve heard the studio edition in quite some time, though, I really do like listening to his live performances. Great post! 🙂
