Pan Tutaj : I'm still scared by this video. :D

Pacero : I remember when it came out. The beginning of MTV, in the 80`s. Shit, am I getting old???

jockadoobee : I'm sad that this song is still relevant in 2018.

CraziiDamon : I wonder if those puppets are stored somewhere... I would really like to see them in a museum or something like that.

twinrg : How sadly relevant this song is up to now!!! People have lost their soul...heart and mind all at once. No more simple, straightforward human feelings, words, deeds...all is going woefully awry, vague, ambivalent, politically correct and insanely cold, almost robotic, devoid of respect and love other than for insatiable SELFISHNESS and masquerade of PRIDE and inflated EGO!!!

Time for Music : Anyone else saw MIchael Jackson at 3:46 in the background?

Cherie Anne Hendrie : for anyone who doesn't know, all of the puppets in the music video are from an old satirical tv show called "Spitting Image" :)

Jane Metcalfe : Phil Collins thought about suing over his 'Spitting Image' puppet depiction when he must've thought. 'Do you know what? Let's make a video full of 'em and take the p!ss!' Let's face it..no way would they have got away with this if they had used 'real people.' This is the whole point of 'Spitting Image' puppets. It's satire. If you weren't depicted you weren't famous enough! Phil 'got' that, eventually. Also, if you look closely at the video it depicts Phil bashing his drums with his head (something he never did in real life) so this is a send-up of Genesis..and they've gone along with it. It's brilliant. The fact that the tune is relevant to then and now is an added bonus...er..sort of. You are meant to laugh at it though, not get too depressed. However, imagine what 'Spitting Image' would do in this Trump era. They'd have a field day! Nothing's changed!🙄

Melina F. R. : I must've dreamed a thousand dreams Been haunted by a million screams But i can hear the marching feet They're moving into the street. Now did you read the news today They say the danger's gone away But i can see the fire's still alight There burning into the night. There's too many men Too many people Making too many problems And not much love to go round Can't you see This is a land of confusion. This is the world we live in And these are the hands we're given Use them and let's start trying To make it a place worth living in. Ooh superman where are you now When everything's gone wrong somehow The men of steel, the men of power Are losing control by the hour. This is the time This is the place So we look for the future But there's not much love to go round Tell me why, this is a land of confusion. This is the world we live in And these are the hands we're given Use them and let's start trying To make it a place worth living in. I remember long ago - Ooh when the sun was shining Yes and the stars were bright All through the night And the sound of your laughter As i held you tight So long ago - I won't be coming home tonight My generation will put it right We're not just making promises That we know, we'll never keep. Too many men There's too many people Making too many problems And not much love to go round Can't you see This is a land of confusion. Now this is the world we live in And these are the hands we're given Use them and let's start trying To make it a place worth fighting for. This is the world we live in And these are the names we're given Stand up and let's start showing Just where our lives are going to.

Apling games nl : 4:30 is that Michael Jackson

Robi_CK : 2:17 - I always liked that little nudge to the audience, that there are 2 Phil's puppets - one singing and one drumming.

Bijan Adhikari : I've been a big Genesis fan ever since the release of their 1980 album, Duke. Before that, I really didn't understand any of their work. Too artsy, too intellectual. It was on Duke where Phil Collins' presence became more apparent. I think Invisible Touch was the group's undisputed masterpiece. It's an epic meditation on intangibility. At the same time, it deepens and enriches the meaning of the preceding three albums. Christy, take off your robe. Listen to the brilliant ensemble playing of Banks, Collins and Rutherford. You can practically hear every nuance of every instrument. Sabrina, remove your dress. In terms of lyrical craftsmanship, the sheer songwriting, this album hits a new peak of professionalism. Sabrina, why don't you, uh, dance a little. Take the lyrics to Land of Confusion. In this song, Phil Collins addresses the problems of abusive political authority. In Too Deep is the most moving pop song of the 1980s, about monogamy and commitment. The song is extremely uplifting. Their lyrics are as positive and affirmative as anything I've heard in rock. Christy, get down on your knees so Sabrina can see your asshole. Phil Collins' solo career seems to be more commercial and therefore more satisfying, in a narrower way. Especially songs like In the Air Tonight and Against All Odds. Sabrina, don't just stare at it, eat it. But I also think Phil Collins works best within the confines of the group, than as a solo artist, and I stress the word artist. This is Sussudio, a great, great song, a personal favorite.

BvousBrainSystems : Come on, the puppetry in this is goddamn outstanding. So many different puppets, so geniusly designed, and decently animated. The number of those puppets I think is what amazes me the most. These aren't drawings, you can't easily come up with them on the spot according to necessity, you gotta draw them, build them, perform, and some of them are only on screen for fractions of a second.

azkiker : Funny thing is..... People nowadays look like the characters in this video with all the Botox, fillers and surgeries.

sandra oliva : que musicon mas magistral el de este grupo y esta cancion es una de mis favorittas por siempre, como critica a los politicos de la guerra fria, la oigo mil veces mas.

No Name : 3:47...oy vey

Richard Coles : I miss spitting image so much... today's TV is controlled & crap.

www.DrumsTheWord.com : This song is made for drummers with double bass drum pedals.

LaceLady'S little dream : From 3:45 parody of "we are the world" video/song.

ZD SKILLZ : My favourite Genesis Song.

B. F. : Most important message to human kind: nothing changes. Same shit, different year.

Axel stunt : Acá un comentario en español que buena música

Adam Cederblad : One of the best songs of the 80s with one of the absolute weirdest music videos of the 80s.

ataga : I must have dreamed a thousand dreams Been haunted by a million screams But I can hear the marching feet They're moving into the street Now, did you read the news today? They say the danger has gone away But I can see the fire's still alight They're burning into the night There's too many men, too many people Making too many problems And not much love to go around Can't you see this is a land of confusion? This is the world we live in And these are the hands we're given Use them and let's start trying To make it a place worth living in Oh, superman, where are you now? When everything's gone wrong somehow? The men of steel, these men of power Are losing control by the hour This is the time, this is the place So we look for the future But there's not much love to go around Tell me why this is a land of confusion This is the world we live in And these are the hands we're given Use them and let's start trying To make it a place worth living in I remember long ago When the sun was shining And all the stars were bright all through the night And the sound of your laughter, as I held you tight So long ago I won't be coming home tonight My generation will put it right We're not just making promises That we know we'll never keep There's too many men, there's too many people Making too many problems And not much love to go round Can't you see this is a land of confusion?

guelle kanista : World of Confusion.

Angela Modeo : mitici anni 80♥

He is seen for a split second in the first TV segment. This is a reference to the lack of tropical fruit and especially bananas in East Germany, a fact which was widely exploited by West-German media throughout the 1980s and one of the reasons cited by defectors to flee to West Germany. Due to this fact, East-German writer Gisela Elsner in early 1990 also accused East Germans willing to re-unite of "bananism" and Kohl of bribing East Germans with bananas.[7]) Erich Honecker (being whacked with a banana by Helmut Kohl) Urho Kekkonen Alan Greenspan Bruce Forsyth Frank Sinatra (not a puppet; photo on book Nancy is reading) Bonzo (The chimpanzee that costars with Reagan in Bedtime for Bonzo) in crowd: Elizabeth II Elton John Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh Freddie Mercury Joan Rivers Pope John Paul II Ringo Starr Yoko Ono Clint Eastwood Michael Jackson Cyndi Lauper Barbra Streisand Madonna (has a singing lipstick-painted navel) Jane Fonda Bette Midler Diana, Princess of Wales Dolly Parton Stephen King Mr. T Walter Matthau Paul McCartney Hulk Hogan Bill Cosby Sting Arnold Schwarzenegger Bob Geldof Faye Dunaway Cliff Richard Boy George Jimmy Somerville Popeye Florence Henderson

0x777 : Remember when we thought Reagan was a dumb president? How we made fun of his limited mental capacities and how we feared he'd be throwing us all into World War 3? History does repeat itself...

Tobias Wöhrmann : Who is watching 2017? Who thinks that the Song is very actual?

cyber zbir : super kawałek uwielbiam go

marcel alfred De Hertogh : The little country Belgium of confusion ...

MrPeterpiper1969 : I just saw the version of this by "Disturbed" and I'm feeling very, very sad because nothing at all has really changed has it? I bought this when it came out (I'm 47 now) and my 20 year old son is living in a world that's no different than it was back in 1989 when I was 20. When the Berlin wall fell my dad was full of hope that our generation would be the one that saw a world at peace but now I think it won't happen in my son's lifetime or for that matter his children's if and when they come along. I bet someone could release this in 2043 (when my lad will be 47) and it will STILL be totally relevant. What a crying shame.

Günter Gerd Julio Vaderrama Sorge : I must've dreamed a thousand dreams Been haunted by a million screams But i can hear the marching feet They're moving into the street.

greatest : I came here from disturbed cover. I must say I am not pleased from what I saw. Considering this video released even before I born, circumstances are not so different today. World is in much deeper shit.

Darren Balderson : Wow why don't they make songs thike this any more

Aselene : Just watched this and the new ariana grande tune, jeeze chart music today by comparison is emotionless, clinical and baron/empty...forget devoid of any joy. There are good tunes out there but sadly don't get any airtime because kids trends just suck. Remember singing this tune walking back from school in the 80's, still one of my faves all these years.

Nowhere Man : This song is still so relevant.. This is still a land of confusion in 2016..

Ville Laitamavkkapajatsoon : Raygun, raygun; Ronnie Reagan.

daerick11 : I wish "Spitting Image" came back ! With Trump and the brexit, every week you can make a thousand jokes !

Jeff Oliver : In the 1980's a satirical programme was on television in Britain called Spitting Image - they lampooned famous people with puppets, and people did very accurate voices of the subjects. It mainly lampooned politicians but often pop stars and actors too. Genesis approached them and said they'd like them to make a video of them for this song. Genesis were the only people, to my knowledge, who were lampooned by Spitting Image who then asked Spitting Image to make a video of them.

Reane Victor : Quem não lembra do CLIP CLIP! !!

Matt Bailey : Do you like Phil Collins?

ashton vickers : Are those puppets from spitting image?

Fabio Ferrarese : This video gives me the chills

jnaz : imagine you would be in a galaxy where everyone looks like that except you... and they try to kill you ok this is getting strange

LaceLady'S little dream : I must've dreamed a thousand dreams Been haunted by a million screams But i can hear the marching feet They're moving into the street.

TehDarkrai : The video clip is awesome and the music is marvelous!

PSW1980 X : Feel like trump could be added in with melania and other state heads different century still same crazy confusion going on 😎✌🏼✌🏽✌🏾✌🏾

Neal Barclay : Phil Collins puppet was on this show and was going to sue the makers of the show at the time, and came to a agreement and they say the rest is history.
