          I love that commercial. I heard about it on NPR and could not imagine what the hell they were going on about. Now that I've seen it...

          How it ties in with Cadbury's I don't quite get but that's OK. I love the way "Phil" is loosening his neck muscles waiting for his big entry, then...

            I never got why musicians love to hate Phil Collins. He was a musician in a pretty cool band who got a chance to do more and ran with it. He didn't invent the gated snare so that everyone would copy it. His engineer found an actually very cool sound that just got over used after the success of In the air tonight. I am not a huge Phil Collins fan, but he has had a great career and he has gotten to do some amazing things that most musicians only fantsize about.

            Musicians can be such haters.

              You answered your own question. Phil Collins was a musician in a pretty cool band. He got a chance to do more and ran with it...in the wrong direction!

              Imagine if Robert Frost chose to stop pursuing his poetry and instead went to work writing greeting cards and ad slogans.

                "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening" would have a similar rhyme scheme but be only one stanza long and have a more upbeat ending... none of this dreary miles to go before I sleep junk. Who needs that?

                  And that is your opinion. But you have never had a record label offer you a million dollar deal to make records. And maybe Phill Collins was just being who he was and he wrote corny pop songs. Who are you to - or anyone else - to say that you could have writen, sang or performed better songs if you had the chance?

                  Music is a very subjective things. Phil Collins has millions of fans who love his music and think that he is great. How many million of fans do you have?

                  As I said; musicians are such haters.

                    He should have stayed behind the drum kit and shut his mouth.

                      I am sure that your band thinks the same thing when you sing one of your tunes.

                        I don't sing in my bands, so it's not an issue.

                            Yes music is subjective. I'll agree to that. But having lots of fans and financial success has nothing to do with artistic success. Lots of people watch "reality" TV shows. Does that make those shows the artistic equivalent of a serious documentary film?

                            I think that musicians dislike the sort of pre-packaged, predictable stuff that latter day Phil Collins embodies.

                              Well, there we have it, folks: per Jotown, the best musicians are those that have been offered the most money.

                              So, Jotown believes that these are among the world's greatest musicians:

                              - Whitney Houston
                              - Jay-Z
                              - Mariah Carey
                              - Britney Spears
                              - Celine Dion
                              - Garth Brooks

                              Nice picks! You have great taste, Jo. We should definitely judge people by their income. All along, I was under the mistaken impression that we should enjoy musicians based on their artistic output, but thank you for clarifying this for us all.
                              Music, thoughts, stuff, and... I guess that's all
