You have no right...

...to ask me how I feel.

Yes, there is something very familiar with those words. That’s because it is taken from the very popular song by Phil Collins entitled Separate Lives. It was a soundtrack to the movie "White Nights". It is just one of the many chart-topping hits by the multi-awarded multi-instrumentalist.

Music has such a great way of influencing our thoughts, doesn’t it?

My writing this is inspired by my listening to a concert by Phil Collins and while reading up on some of my fellow bloggers here, the song suddenly came up. This song brought back some memories.

I admit, once in my life, this song was a huge part of a painful breakup. Though remnants of the terrible pain still reside in the deepest parts of my brain, it doesn’t really hurt as much as it did. We are now friends and remain to be friends.

If you were to bump into an ex-flame and he/she asks you how you feel, would you say the words “You have no right”?

Yes I really like Phil Collins! I would second your view that music can really create a great influence in changing the mood. I do love classical music as well.

If I ran into an ex-flame, I would not respond "you have no right" if they asked me how I felt. Let bygones be bygones.

I like Phil Collins as he sings solo. I also liked listening to him when he was in the group Genesis.

I would not want to experience this. Sometimes people can be well meaning but sometimes it can backfire.

When people ask that question I doubt if there is any depth in it.

I can relate to this but everything is water under the bridge but still sometimes bring back memories which are actually triggered by only one song.

I didn't know Collins sung this song, I thought Stephen Bishop sung it... hahahah! Sorry. But if I am not mistaken, Collins sung the song True Colors. I wonder where is P. Collins right now.

Stephen Bishop wrote the song which was recorded by Collins and Marilyn Martin for the movie "White Nights". It was a hit and was re-recorded by Bishop and is a staple in his shows as well. I hope Phil Collins is still busy in his studio writing songs for us to enjoy. emoticon :smile:
