In the Air Tonight by Phil Collins

In the Air Tonight — This Friday’s Song

Continuing to listen to 80s tracks. This Friday’s Song is “In the Air Tonight” by Phil Collins. This song was released in January 1981. I had moved to Houston to work for the Digital Systems Group of Texas Instruments. Houston was going through a huge growth boom. I lived north of Houston in the Champions/1960 area. Everything was “larger than life” and this song reflects that feel and tempo. We worked hard and played hard, very hard. I have some amazing memories and, to be truthful, some things I would probably like to forget I did from those days.

The song became the anthem for this era. It was featured in this memorable scene from Miami Vice in September 1984. Hope you enjoy both of these versions of “In the Air Tonight” by Phil Collins.
