Get your air-drumming arms ready.

Musical legend (and noted Paul McCartney hater) Phil Collins just dropped some knowledge on Twitter that could make this New Year’s the greatest ever. 

Yes, the former Genesis frontman/drummer and solo star who peaked in the ’80s with hits like “Sussudio,” “One More Night” and “Easy Lover” offered this sage advice on celebrating the start of 2018.

As we all know, the drum break from “In the Air Tonight” is one of the greatest musical interludes ever. Just ask Mike Tyson

Truly, it is almost physically impossible NOT to start air drumming when that beat kicks in. And if there’s a better way to ring in 2018, we don’t know what it is.

Now, listen to the whole song here—because what the hell else are you doing?
