"Many Too Many"
It was released as a single from the album ...And Then There Were Three... in 1978 and written by the band's keyboardist, Tony Banks, who described it as "a simple love lyric". The single reached No. 43 on the UK Singles Chart, following the band's successful breakthrough into the Top Ten with "Follow You Follow Me". Its B-side had two non-album songs, "Vancouver" and "The Day the Light Went Out", both released on compact disc on the Genesis Archive 2: 1976–1992 box set. A music video was filmed for the song.

Although it was rehearsed for the …And Then There Were Three… Tour, the song was never performed by the band live. Tony Banks suggested it to be played on 2007's Turn It On Again: The Tour, but that did not happen. Despite their not performing the song, Genesis mimed it on a near empty field in Knebworth in June 1978 (2 days before their show there) for the Nationwide documentary "Three Dates With Genesis".
