Live It Up 75: I Know There’s Something Going On

I heard this on the radio a couple of weeks ago and immediately thought, “That’s Phil Collins drumming.” It’s very reminiscent of his contribution to the track Intruder from Peter Gabriel’s third solo album and is a signature drum sound which Collins seems to have created with Hugh Padgham.

I confess I didn’t remember who had performed this song and was a little surprised to hear the DJ say it was Anni-Frid Lyngstad – she from ABBA.

It was indeed Collins on the drums and he also produced the track.

The song was taken from Anni-Frid’s first solo LP, Something Going On, released in 1982. It only reached no 43 in the UK charts.

    Great find, man. That sound is epic.
    I remember watching this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bxz6jShW-3E a few years ago and finding out how the sound was created by mistake.
    I also love the version of Bomfunk MC’s with Jessica Folker. Have to say that she has a much better voice than Frida.

    Andrei,

    I’m glad you liked it.

    I can’t go with you on the Bomfunk MC’s with Jessica Folker thing though. Rap is something I just don’t get on with.

    Thanks for looking in and commenting.
