Phil Collins – “Take Me Home” – (1985)

Phil Collins had a lot of hits in the 80s and No Jacket Required was responsible for a good number of them. I like this song because it has that good mid-80s sound with a drum machine and electric keyboard. It was a top 10 hit on the Hot 100. This song also takes over two and a half minutes to reach the chorus… which seems like a really long time. And the music video must’ve taken forever too because it seems to have been shot in quite a few major world cities. Fun fact: apparently Sting and Peter Gabriel both provided backing vocals for this track.
