Description

"Mama" was the first single from Genesis' 1983 self-titled album (often referred to as the "shapes album" or simply "Mama", after the first track). Instantly recognizable from its harsh drum machine introduction, which leads into minimalist synthesizer lines in minor keys and finally Phil Collins' reverb-laden voice, "Mama" serves notice that the album which follows will be considerably darker than previous efforts. It remains the band's biggest commercial success in the UK, reaching #4 on the UK Singles Chart, but was less popular in the US, only reaching #73 on the Billboard Hot 100. It also made #7 on the Dutch Top 40.

The track also has a powerful final verse punctuated with a live drum kit (modified with the trademark "gated reverb" effect), comparable to Collins' earlier solo recording "In the Air Tonight".

The song has resurfaced in 2007 as part of the Turn It On Again tour, albeit transposed down a tone to account for the deepening of Phil Collins's voice over the years.

myspace videos update
seems like the myspace saga had taken another bad turn, I looked into it and fixed it... yet again.

Please report all remaining non-working myspace vids so I can clean up after them ;)
