This is a question that popped into my head earlier. I like all of these but Get Em Out by Friday takes it for me with Epping and Robbery in a close second and third

Pretty much. Definitely “Get ‘em Out” and “Robbery.” I also like “A Trick of the Tail” and “Squonk.”

My favourite from that list Return of the Giant Hogweed, especially the version on Genesis Live.
Ultimately bored by endless ecstasy!

Somehow I'm missing "The Fountain of Salmacis", "The Musical Box" and "Harold the Barrel".

There are quite a few story based Genesis songs. Another one that comes to my mind is White Mountain.

I pick Slippermen just over Hogweed.

Wanted to stick with one per album, also didn’t wanna throw in a song like musical box that would likely run away with it

Ditto, a staggering piece of work from a group of people who were barely out of school.

From the list, Get 'Em Out.

Agree and when the gang leaders says after all their followers have died-- "There's no one left alive--must be a draw. SO the black cap barons toss a coin to settle the score!" I get chills down my spin when Hackett comes in with his moving guitar lick. Sublime.

But All in a Mouses night a close second ...

From this list, Get 'em Out by Friday.
I would've voted for either Harold the Barrel or One for the Vine over these.
Still, it's Genesis.  It's all good.

All in a Mouse's Night is wittily told from a number of perspectives. It also has some wonderful melodies

I'm actually trying to wrap my mind around what makes a song story or non-story based.
