Genesis – Blood on the Rooftops

Someone managed to combine video footage of Steve Hackett playing live with the recording of the original album version of the Genesis song “Blood on the Rooftops” from the album Wind & Wuthering, together with images that (for all the corniness of some of them) manage to convey the meaning of this classic song to a contemporary audience, to good effect (click the links I've embedded to get to the separate sources).

The song focuses on a subject that both Genesis and Phil Collins' solo efforts have looked at on more than one occasion, namely the role of television and the media in our lives. You can read the lyrics online.
