There’s an urban legend about Phil Collins’ inspiration for his 1980 hit In the Air Tonight, which Andrew Norman Wilson first heard as a teenager while getting high in a friend’s basement. According to the ritual of the legend, the song is played while a narrator tells the story, syncing the infamous analog drum break of the song with the climax of the narrative. In March 2020, from a hillside home that faces the Hollywood sign, Wilson began to dwell on Phil due to an experience he had one night on the Pacific Coast Highway. Driving alongside him was a woman tuned into the same radio frequency, emphatically singing along to "In the Air Tonight".
