It seems like almost everything in the news these days is specifically designed to be divisive and cause us all to argue and hate each other…So I decided I’d cover something positive today…A story about coming together rather than falling apart.
Two teens (Twinsthenewtrend) reacting to Phil Collins’ In the Air Tonight has gone viral for the best reason ever, because for once everyone is in agreement on something…Phil Collins is a master musician and his music can be appreciated by everyone of all ages.
I’ll put the original video of them reacting below as well as sharing some of the tweets people are putting out in response to it…for once let’s all just be happy and enjoy some good music.
As you can say it was the drums dropping that really made them pay attention, it’s nice to see a new generation discovering such an epic song.
They’re also so smart with knowing that old people will always be happy to see younger folks enthusiastically discovering the stuff they’ve loved. Been awesome to watch their audience grow to the point where they have sponsors now.— Anil Dash (@anildash) August 5, 2020
They’re a pretty popular reaction channel and seem to know how to market it correctly as well.
This made me smile & laugh & just…feel wonderful.— Pam Keith (@PamKeithFL) August 7, 2020
I have LOVED that Phil Collins song for decades. It BLEW ME AWAY too when I first heard it, just like these young men.
I suppose, in these times of disconnection, seeing a true bond through a musical experience uplifted me https://t.co/Gk5Rm4gdBH
Yes, I’ve loved this song pretty much my whole life and it’s amazing to get to see someone hear it for the first time…need more reaction channels like this.

I feel like I probably made the same face the first time I heard it too.
OMG. I literally cried when I heard Phil Collins perform, “In The Air Tonight”, live, in concert. The lead up to the drum solo, then the payoff…perfection. One of the most memorable moments of my life.💗 https://t.co/v26RIP58cb— Bonnie North (@BonnieNorthGP) August 7, 2020
I’m almost jealous that there are people that still will get to hear this song for the first time…such an amazing tune.
Shhhh don’t talk about cassettes you’ll give our age away…
Phil Collins was a hipster before you. pic.twitter.com/OBf8sPMMmj— Eric Alper 🎧 (@ThatEricAlper) August 7, 2020
So many other good songs by him people should listen to as well.
