Gear disparity?[edit]

Before march it said "The song's drum sounds come from an E-mu SP-12, a classic drum machine of the 1980's. Leland Sklar plays the synth bass via a Roland stompbox. The Sequential Circuits Prophet 5 leads the song. This is layered with a Yamaha DX7 Electric Piano. Like many of Collins' songs, Sussudio has a full horn section on it."

Now it is different - synth bass is a minimoog, for example. Any sources for either of these lists? Kps2420 9.13.06

The Video[edit]

Sorry, but that's not Mike Rutherford in the beginning of the video... it's obviously a much older man. Now for those trying to spot familiar faces, I will tell you that the kids are (supposedly) Simon and Joely. I don't have a source for that, but it should be easy to tell upon re-watching the video, as will debunking the Rutherford theory. Oh, and by the way... I'd *really* like to see a source for the Tarantino cameo. Is there any evidence he was even in London at the time? I'm pretty sure I know which guy people think is him, and while I could accept it was him if provided with a reliable source, I'll continue to doubt it until then.

Yeah, I thought the Tarantino cameo mention was amazingly suspicious, too. That's why I didn't add it to the No Jacket Required article... a lot of the stuff in this article is quite suspicious! I just wish we had the tape that had all the music videos... the credits section would shed so much light on this! CarpetCrawler (talk) 04:40, 23 September 2008 (UTC)

Big Band version of Sussudio[edit]

Phil Collins Big Band recorded a rearranged (instrumental) version of Sussudio which should be worth mentioning here. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.239.64.96 (talk) 15:58, 29 November 2012 (UTC)

"Less sucessful"[edit]

"number 12 is by definition less successful than number one - and where were you when 66.87.3.45 was vandalising the page?"[1]

"The song peaked at number 12 in the UK." vs. "The song was less successful in the UK, where it peaked at number 12."

This involves a comparison of two different charts with two different methodologies and whatever your definition of "success" is.

Was one more the result of airplay vs. sales? Did one country's airplay result in more single sales vs. album sales? Did one peak quickly and burn out quickly while another had less intensive airplay for a more prolonged period of time? Was the single release more heavily promoted in one country vs. the other for strategic marketing?

Who knows? Not us, that's who.

We know it peaked at number 12 in the UK. The chart tells us that much. Anything additional is original research and/or point of view. - SummerPhDv2.0 23:36, 30 June 2017 (UTC)
