The Philcast is named after the detestable little Tory weasel Phil Collins, as a result of this comment on this post by James who writes Appetite for Distraction.  So you can all blame him.

In addition to Phil Collins, we have some Phil Spector, Phil Ochs, Phil & the Osophers and, somewhat more tenuously, Esther Phillips.  Also, for some utterly inexplicable reason, the Spider Man theme song came up when I searched my iTunes library for 'Phil'.  Any ideas?  Was it written by Phil Phillips from Philadelphia?

Also, we have the first 'Fucking Preposterous Song of the Week', in the form of Phil Collins' Easy Lover.  For reasons of being a fuckwit, mostly, I suppose, I'd quite like to make this a regular feature.  Next week Turn Around Bright Eyes by Bonni Tyler or Hello by Lionel Richie - whaddaya reckon!
