"Turn It On Again" by Genesis

Song#:  0322
Date:  09/06/1980
Debut:  84
Peak:  58
Weeks:  8
Genre:  Rock

Pop Bits:  Genesis just had their first real success in the US when "Misunderstanding" hit #14. This follow-up single from their album "Duke" made it close to halfway up the chart, but it quickly became a concert staple for them, in addition to becoming their second UK Top 10 hit.

ReduxReview:  This song about a guy obsessed with watching TV and the people on the screen is one of my favorite Genesis tracks. It is terrific songwriting and a very exciting song. I've never seen Genesis in concert, but I can understand how this would be a terrific live tune.

ReduxRating:  8/10

Trivia:  Genesis has had much greater chart success with their albums in their UK homeland. Their previous five albums all went Top 10. "Duke" became their first to hit #1 in the UK. In the US it became their best charting effort at the time when it peaked at #11.
