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 Newcomers

? The Lamia
? Shepherd

Really unknown early Genesis song but truely great.

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.

Awesome

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
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.

21 Abacab
22 Just a Job to Do
23 The Waiting Room

Am I the only person who likes this song? Sure it's a bit "weird" but this instrumental is certainly one of their best

24 Can-Utility and the Coastliners

Brilliant lyrics and catchy riff. "The waves surround the sinking throne". Later they mistimed the mellotron riff in the live versions, but the album version is spot on.

25 It
26 Aisle of Plenty
27 Get 'Em Out By Friday

Wow. Just wow.

28 Calling All Stations

Superb beginning to a stunning album.

29 Way of the World
30 More Fool Me
31 Ripples
32 Behind the Lines

Amazing song. Like, 19845710384756 key changes, catchy as a mthrfker, and all around a great guitar performance and great song.
