Most Underrated Genesis Songs


The Top Ten

1 Home by the Sea

Best genesis song ever...

So good. enough said. surprising to see invisible touch on here, I voted that as the most overrated.

2 Go West Young Man (In the Motherlode)
3 The Battle of Epping Forest

Truly great track Gabriel's changing vocals superb band musically hit the heights just awesome

Don't know why this one isn't considered higher among Genesis fans.

Better than Firth of Fifth, the best track on Selling England.

Supernice atmosphere, nice contrast between british gangs and robin hood, just awesome.

4 Duke's Travels

A monumental track that is never counted among the band's best. It's just as good as Firth Of Fifth and The Cinema Show, as it is a throwback to the SEBTP album.

5 The Fountain of Salmacis
6 Keep It Dark

So underrated a great song!

7 Invisible Touch
8 Burning Rope
9 Tell Me Why

There are some superb songs on the We Can't Dance album that are overshadowed by No Son Of Mine, etc. This one of them.

Everybody seems to hate this song. I don't know why: it isn't even offensive. It's not a genesis highlight, but itis sure a good song

10 Congo

This song proves that calling all stations isn't a that bad of an album

The Contenders

11 Driving the Last Spike

Hardly heard but up there with many of the great longs. Great story telling with great instrumental break. Behind Home by the Sea, Domino, Firth, Musical Box, Cinema Show and obviously Supper's Ready, but not far behind

Their most underrated by far. Fabulous social historic comment and great instrumentation

12 The Colony of Slippermen
13 Mad Man Moon

Definitely awesome (maybe heathaze is even more underrated.


14 Not About Us
15 Domino

I rarely hear this song talked about, but it's one of my favorites of all time. Pay more attention to this one, it really shows the greatness of Genesis throughout and is a fantastic song (in my opinion)!

Amazing just listen to it.

16 Match of the Day Match of the Day Match of the Day, often abbreviated as MOTD or MotD, is BBC TV's principal football programme. Typically, it is shown on BBC One on Saturday evenings during the English football season, showing highlights of the day's matches in English football's top division, the Premier League.
17 Shipwrecked

Just great song. Great singer (much better than the last PC, since Hackett's departure)

18 The Return of the Giant Hogweed
19 Robbery, Assault and Battery
20 Time Table

A unfortunate little known masterpiece tucked onto Foxtrot. Horizon's from the same album should also be considered spectacular. I think Supper's Ready is 22 minutes of pure brilliance; it's so great that the other songs are often overlooked.
