I Missed Again by Phil Collins

Album: Face ValueReleased: 1981Charted:
  • Like many of the songs on Face Value, this is based on the pain and anger Collins felt after his first wife Andrea left him. The original demo was entitled, "I Miss You, Babe" and the lyrics were originally much sadder. He subsequently re-wrote the song in an effort to make it funny as opposed to sad. Collins told The Mail on Sunday: "This song was written with a large dose of humor, with theme a little like the Basil Fawlty scene which goes something like, 'That was your life mate.' 'Do I get another chance?' 'No mate, that's it."'
  • The song features a tenor sax solo from English jazz tenor saxophonist and jazz club owner Ronnie Scott. It was at Scott's club where Jimi Hendrix performed for the last time.

    The rest of the horn section was The Phenix Horns - Don Myrick, Louis Satterfield, Rahmlee Davis and Michael Harris - who played on many of Earth, Wind & Fire's hits.
