^ Yeah, Home by the Sea may not be a very obvious choice for Genesis, but it's still a great song... perhaps the best from the Collins era, and proggy enough for me... a great example of a really 80's sounding prog song, evolving with the sound of music of the time while keeping some prog elements (mostly the long instrumental passage, actually), instead of desperatley trying to remain in the 70's.
