Ok, Snopes on "In the Air tonite" (I know Snopes isn't fair on conservative / l i b e r a l issues and "fact checks" slammin' conservative s , but on this, prob'ly solid:) "As Phil Collins has explained numerous times over the years, "In the Air Tonight" ... deals with his bitterness and frustration over the end of his marriage to his first wife, and the lyrics do not reference any specific real-life event."
If the story Betawolf ooOo etc. tells (below() is true, wow. I can front Phil this much credit: the "air" is a universal topic JESUS talked of: Satan is the power "in the air" down here (and ON THE AIR, if you watch TV...) but He spoke also of the Holy Spirit as being like the wind... You see its effects but can't trace it... If Phil really spotlighted a murderer, he was playing "Holy Spirit"... Or trying... God is better at it, and God is "slow to expose." Blessings
In The Air Tonight... Phil's 1st hit solo !! ~ Way to begin your long, wonderful career, Mr C.!!
Love this!

❤️beautiful! !
no you don't fool me the hurt doesn't show but the pain still grows
..<3.<3.<3..
I read somewhere that the story you mentioned was just a rumor and not true.
Collins was a young boy, he witnessed a man drowning someone but was too far away to help. Later, he hired a private detective to find the man, sent him a free ticket to his concert, and premiered the song that night with the spotlight on the man the whole time.
This song isn't about divorce at all
..<3..
Awesome :)

I always think of the Miami Vice scenes when I hear this song love it for road trips
Feel. It feels. Fake. Don't. It
Wasn't a mix of this in dead space. Now that I think of it this song would rock for dead space.
Awesome song!!
I always heard this song since a little girl. Mom loved it. And till this day I love it. Beautiful classic.<3.. < 3 . . < 3 . .
The first time I heard this song was while watching the tv show Miami vice back in the 80's and then again in the Tom cruise movie risky business. Man the 80's rocked
I'm so wet
This song is about divorce
Love this song ♡♡
Love this song. Great little remix for Dead Space 3, too.

Phil Collins is one of the Top Ten best drummers of all time...
Before he started singing and writing he was known as one of the UKs best drummers...I think his talent there has been forgotten...
