Music video by Genesis performing Congo (2004 Digital Remaster).
"Congo" was the first single from the Genesis album ...Calling All Stations..., released in September 1997.
The song is not about the African country, but rather about two people who cannot get along with each other, leaving them to want to be rid of each other and as distant as possible. Musically, the song opens with a Caribbean drum beat while an African-style tribe is heard chanting "Congo the Congo", before the song launches into a darker guitar-driven melody. The album version features an alternative synthesizer ending that fades out, while the single version has an earlier fade-out that excludes the ending. The lyrics were penned by Genesis keyboardist Tony Banks.
