Tonight, there’s definitely something in the air…
There are certain songs, from various decades, that genuinely transport us to a place that elevates the moment beyond the constraints of reality. A sublime trance, if you will. Phil Collins, the masterful singer/songwriter, gave the Tonight Show’s viewers such an experience.
“In the Air Tonight” is one of those songs you listen to on a long car ride alone at night, driving whilst peeking up at the stars, reflecting. With the weather officially in fall mode (chilly with rain), this song and performance feels rather therapeutic and, yes, perfect.
Just like Questlove’s triumphant drumming moment.
