"I Know What I Like (In Your Wardrobe)" was the first charting single by the rock band Genesis. It was drawn from the album Selling England by the Pound. The single was released in the UK in February 1974, and became a "minor hit" in April 1974, when it reached number 21 in the UK Singles Chart.
The song's lyrics concern a young man who is employed as a groundsman and who says that he does not want to grow up and do great things, being perfectly happy where he is, pushing a lawn mower. Betty Swanwick's painting The Dream, which was used for the Selling England album cover, alludes to the song; Swanwick added the mower to the original painting at the band's request.
The B-side was the non-album track "Twilight Alehouse," recorded during the sessions for "Foxtrot" but left off the album due to lack of room. Its lyrics portray a lonely man who finds solace in the local tavern. This song had been in Genesis' live set since 1970 but was not recorded in the studio until 1972 during the Foxtrot sessions, and its initial release was held until this point. "Twilight Alehouse" was later released as part of Genesis Archive 1967-75.
For the The Way We Walk and Turn It On Again tours, this song was played as part of a medley of old Genesis songs, and starting with the A Trick of the Tail tour in 1976 was often performed with excerpts of "Stagnation", from the album Trespass. During the Turn It On Again tour shows, images from the band's history cycled by in the background.
In 1993, Marillion's ex-frontman Fish did a cover version on his Songs from the Mirror album. Fish said his decision to cover the song was to prove to his critics that he could interpret a song differently from Gabriel, having been previously dismissed in his career as a Gabriel clone.
