Great song, even though it doesn't come close to being in my top ten from this band during its classic era.    Many of those choices simply present too deep a plunge even for seasoned RP listeners game for a wide range of material.    (I love Yes' Gates but not for here, either.)
So I agree that older Genesis is not for anyone, .  If you were ever into that era, as I was, you can get your fix from other sources whenever you need it.  But I certainly agree that some other classic Genesis belongs in the mix at RP.    So the question then is what else might you choose to play to introduce others to that music?    Title track to SEPTB would seem appropriate this week.    Carpet Crawl from Lamb.   Or one of my early favorites, Looking for Someone from Trespass.     Others mentioned Get 'em Out by Friday, and that's a good choice as well.   
Agree with other commenters that the heart of their catalog is music that really challenges the listener, as much as it did them to play it.
Anyone wanting to explore on their own should try on The Lamia and of course The Cinema Show.   I'm a fan of Epping Forest as well, even though the band wasn't.    Anyone who hasn't stumbled on Genesis for Two Grand Pianos should also pick that up.

 
Firth of Fith is already in the RP Genesis list
Would love to see The Cinema Show from Selling England in here.
Lamb & Carpet Crawlers are already in the RP Genesis list
Ripples from Trick of the Tail
Blood on the Rooftops from Wind and Wuthering
Many too Many and Snowbound from And Then There Were Three
Duchess is already in the RP Genesis list
Me and Sara Jane from Abacab

These could all be great additions to initiating someone to Genesis from an RP point of view.

No you did not.  You provided solid information on yourself.  The way you used the term 'retard' is adolescent to say the least.

You had me wondering the following:   Hmm.... I would guess that Schmoogsley has at least grade 10.  Maybe a couple of years of underwater basket weaving at some liberal arts college where most of the energy went into video games and masturbation?

If that is how you see yourself, well then what can I say?  Mission Accomplished!

My opinion is that the departure of Steve Hackett set the turning point in Genesis music, deeper than Gabriel's

Need to pull this out, without the kids around as they may ask what the green stuff, probably brown now, is in the middle of the cover.

I think what is essential about many of these bands from the 1970s, is that they experimented. Good, bad, ugly.

Ya just don't hear the same risk taking in music being created now. It's like the bands today are all working off the same notes.   

 
You apparently have heard a very limited amount of today's bands - there are many more bands than your fall-backs of Arcade Fire and The Foo Fighters.  To be fair, one would often have to search  - the "experimental" bands of today don't get a lot of airplay.
