Going For A Song: ‘In the Air Tonight’

Phil Collins – In the Air Tonight

I’ve recently begun watching The Americans. In one scene, early in the first series, the two main characters are driving at night and this song is used. It completely re-contextualised the song for me away from the Cadbury Dairy Milk ad and allowed me to appreciate, on its own merits, what a good song it is. (And it is just me but can you hear an influence on the later albums of Bon Iver?)
