Music Video of the Day: Misunderstanding by Genesis (1980, directed by Stuart Orme)


In today’s music video of the day, Genesis takes ua on a tour of Los Angeles in 1980.  Technically, the video is actually about Phil Collins driving around the city and searching for his girlfriend but mostly, that was just an excuse to show off Los Angeles and to perhaps announce that the new, post-Peter Gabriel Genesis was ready to conquer Hollywood.

According to Tony Banks, this song was meant to serve as an homage to the Beach Boys.  That probably explains Phil’s Hawaiian shirt.

This video was directed by Stuart Orme, who directed several videos for both Genesis as a group and Phil Collins as a solo act.

Enjoy!
