Song 12:365 is my version of Phil Collins’ Against All Odds, recorded for the soundtrack of the 1984 film of the same name. I remember learning to play this as a 12 year old when it was released and it being one of the first songs I played in D flat major, and therefore “lots of black notes”. As a result of the black notes I think it felt a bit ‘oriental’ and that probably explains the slight pentatonic hints in my performance!
This song is also dedicated to drummers everywhere – there are no drums in my performance, but they’re definitely missing after that first chorus!
I actually recorded this song again for 2017 as I felt the original 2010 version wasn’t quite right. Here’s the original if you want to have a listen, but I hope you enjoy the new version.
