W hen I kiss you leaps. “Groovy Kind of Love” was actually written by Tony Wine and Carole Bayer Bacharach (act now! add your name here, spaces are filling up fast), so it’s a little more sensitive (sorry, couldn’t get the “p” key to work when I tried to type in “sappier”) than some of Phil’s material. Sort of a lullaby really. Fine if you’re on prozac, or trying to flush a Central American dictator out of his palatial stronghold, but not the sort of thing you’d want to be remembered for at the end of the day. The flip side is “Big Noise,” a (mostly) instrumental cowritten with Motown legend Lamont Dozier (I’m pretty sure he had his name legally changed to read “Motown legend Lamont Dozier”). Both songs appeared in the film Buster, as did Phil Collins. So did “Two Hearts.” I didn’t see the movie, but if I wanted to watch average-looking middle-aged people make out, I’d put a mirror over my bed. Then invite an average-looking middle-aged pair of swingers over to my house and hide under the bed while they made out, poking my head out occasionally to watch them in the mirror on the ceiling. But only because I can never get comfortable in movie theater chairs.
