Separate Lives

  • Artist – Album: Phil Collins and Marilyn Martin – White Nights: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

Writing free verse is, bar none, the hardest thing to do in songwriting. In difficulty, 10/10. And this song gets the job done.

Phil Collins and Marilyn Martin deliver here as well in spades. It shows how good Phil Collins can be when he has powerful lyrics to deliver. Marilyn holds her own with her signature and complementary singing style. The result is heartbreaking in its inevitability; you know the relationship has to stay ended, but you want to fight against what’s right, even if it’s just to let the song go on longer.
