Phil Collins' 'In The Air Tonight' Back On The Charts Thanks To Viral Video

Phil Collins' early '80s track "In the Air Tonight" is a huge hit again, 39 years after its release. The song is currently at number 3 on the iTunes Top Songs chart.

The song wound up back in the spotlight last Friday as a video of two young YouTubers reacting to their first taste of the track went viral. According to Variety, the 22-year-old twin brothers who run the Twins Reacts YouTube channel are Tim and Fred Williams of Gary, Indiana. People can't get enough of watching them discover the song in real time, and the whole thing really pays off when they finally hear the iconic drum solo/fill. The success of this video has brought them a lot of new viewers. They've got reaction videos up for Dolly Parton's "Jolene", Aerosmith's "Dream On", Eurythmics' "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)", and dozens of other songs from way before their time.
