Surprised to see such a large spread between Peter Gabriel and Phil Collins.  I had VGS pegged as more of a Phil fan.  Particularly considering Sudio.

I’m a Phil fan, but never understood the love for Sussudio. Sledgehammer, especially the video has a ton of nostalgia for someone raised on MTV like me.

I thought it was suppose to be the woman’s name but what do I know? I could never get into Phil and this song is probably the worst for me.

Collins has said that he "improvised" the lyric. Collins was just playing around with a drum machine, and the lyric "su-sussudio" was what came out of his mouth. "So I kinda knew I had to find something else for that word, then I went back and tried to find another word that scanned as well as 'sussudio,' and I couldn't find one, so I went back to 'sussudio'", Collins said.

This is probably the only song combo where Peter Gabriel stands a chance against Phil.

Stood a chance.  Obliterated.

If I do a greatest hits bracket, and it gets far enough, we could see a rematch with In the Air Tonight
