51 Weeks: 51 Songs From The Past: Week 44: Genesis – Follow You, Follow Me

Did you all enjoy the party onboard the music time machine last week? I had to empty the vacuum cleaner three times, not to mention all those glasses that needed washing up. However, music is all about fun and, this week, I hope you’ll have some more fun with the challenge I’ve got for you. This week, we’re heading back to the year 1978.

In February 2018, I will be celebrating my fourth blogging anniversary. Blogging has become a big part of my life, and I could not allow this feature to finish without mentioning what many of us here like to do. But, first, let’s hear this week’s featured song.

Follow You, Follow Me has always been my favourite song by the band. Even before the days of blogging, this song always struck a chord with me. It’s different and is the kind of song that I can close my eyes and relax to.

Released in February 1978, Follow You, Follow Me became the bands best selling single, reaching number seven in the United Kingdon, and number 23 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the U.S.A. It has featured in both the worlds of the music and television industries, and still enjoys plenty of radio play. The song also marked a change in direction for the band who had previously been accused of writing and producing songs that would only appeal to men. What do you think?

Earlier, I mentioned blogging and how I wanted to include it in at least one of the posts from this feature. Well, here’s my chance. I rather like how the title of this song reminds me of the bloggers I refer to as ‘ghost followers.’ You know the ones I mean? The ones who follow you in the hope that you’ll follow them back and then never come back to visit again. Or, worse still, unfollow you once you’ve taken the bait and followed them.

Do you have a favourite song that can in some way be connected to blogging? Let’s have fun with this and share a link to that song in the comments.

Thank you to everyone who left a link to a favourite song in the comments section of last week’s post. And a big thank you to Ruth and Kat who published a blog post about a song that would be on their Halloween playlist.
