A funny thing happened over the weekend. Phil Collins' 1981 single, "In the Air Tonight," went soaring up the iTunes song sales chart. It's currently sitting pretty at #3. The only songs ahead of it are the red-hot “WAP” by Cardi B featuring Megan Thee Stallion, and “Beers and Sunshine” by Darius Rucker. The source of this newfound appreciation for Collins' drum classic? Twenty-one-year-old twins Tim and Fred Williams of Gary, Indiana.

The brothers have been sharing reaction videos of a wide range of music, from Blake Shelton to Dolly Parton's "Jolene." Their take on Parton's timeless 1974 hit struck a chord with viewers, and helped increase their viewership.

None of it, however, compares to what has happened since they dropped the video that shows them reaction to "In the Air Tonight" for the first time. It's pretty great, and well worth a watch. KISS frontmant Paul Stanley is a fan.

Even if you've already seen it, the joy and power of music still hits hard with repeated viewings. Enjoy.
