The Top Ten

In the Air Tonight
I can feel it... Coming in the air tonight, Oh Lord! Such simple and beautiful lyrics
I feel like it is the song of a man who has seen with wife with another man and is preparing to murder him. He doesn't know what will happen but he can feel it coming in the air tonight. That is my interpitation the beauty of this vague song is its up to the listener. But what I do know is this is the best produced song ever. Boom bom boom do bom bom bom
One of the Greatest songs of All Time So simple yet so Brilliant!
[Newest]Love this song! Phil Collins rocks!

2Another Day In Paradise
Listening to the song just sends me to paradise... Song is filled with hope and it feels like heaven just like another day in Paradise...
Its about homelessness... And its so beautiful. I love this song. This song makes me think of dancing in circles under the hot sunny weather in Greece- that was paradise.
How is this not number one!? :O
In the air tonight is good. But this is so much better.
[Newest]Feeling the love in his voice... Its Great!

3You'll Be In My Heart
This is the best Phil Collins's song ever! In my opinion it should be the #1 in this list!
This is such a great song! It's my favorite Phil Collins. This should be higher! Just because it was in Tarzan doesn't lower it's quality! Yeah
This is one of the most beautiful and powerful songs I've ever listened to! It's really unfortunate that some people think it's not as good as other songs just because it's from a Disney movie!
[Newest]It's from one of my favourite film of all time and makes me feel warm and safe every time I hear it. It has such a beautiful sound to it, it should be number one!

4Against All Odds
An absolutely brilliant song... In my opinion, phil Collins best! Even groovy kind of love, one more night are fantastic ones...
Phil is something that you can't stop listening to and against all odds is just a perfect song of feelings and emotions! When you get left by a woman, who you knew very well and who knew you very well too, This song is a very good choice for that moment. Ty Phil for everything, you have made my life Better and happier!
Phil's soul roots comes to the fore in this amazing song used for the theme song of the same titled movie. No other continental singer can sing soul and interpret it like him.
[Newest]It's the best ballad there is, period.

5One More Night

6Easy Lover
Absolutely brilliant song, a classic song that gets me in the mood for music :) phil collins with phillip bailey (is that his name) was some combo!
Heard this for the first time at work today and I was like wow! This is great song! I'm 16 as well! Top quality
Songs like this are a dime a dozen. A timeless classic. Thanks Phil.
[Newest]I just get a good feeling when I listen to that song. It's the best song on the record. It has got power.

7Can't Stop Loving You
Can't stop loving this song
How on earth is this not on the list?! This was always one of my favourite songs as a kid!
Beautiful lyrics it's just an awesome song.

8I Don't Care Anymore
Song was in Grand Theft Auto and always reminds me of Michael, vouch
Perfect song with great tune. Why its number 8 I won't understand, I agree with 2 though or even number 1.
Yea I don't know why this is not number 2. Need I say more?
[Newest]Love the drums in this song.

9You Can't Hurry Love
One of those songs that just makes you smile every time you listen to it. Easily Phil Collins' best song. That being said, I prefer the progressive rock material that Collins recorded while being a part of Genesis, Dancing with the Moonlit Knight would be his best song as Genesis' drummer and Dance on a Volcano would be his best song as Genesis' drummer/singer.


This is a timeless song that really reflects positivity, hope, and self empowerment. The vocals are superb and the strong drum beats shows the best of Collins
I like this song much better than the supremes version. Phil collins does such an awesome job!

I can't get out of my mind this song when I'm going ou in the night with my friends. This song is simply incredible
Really this should be top 3 at least
Am amplify by the song very uplifting from emmanuel omoroje

The Contenders

11True Colors
Phil Collins sings this song incredibly. The song is sung with passion, meaning and his voice is incredible.
One of the most underrated, singer/songwriters I have ever known far better than any American trash
His version is a lot easier to listen to then Cyndi's


[Newest]I love that dedicate 2 my wife name shirley

12I Wish It Would Rain Down
Should be number 1 in my opinion
Wish it would rain IS his best. Invisible touch is 2.
Without doubt his best song

13Do You Remember
I remember. Don't worry.

14Something Happened On the Way to Heaven
The way the trumpets, vocals and drum come together in this song is simply awesome. The chorus is just so uplifting on this song, it's amazing!
Very cute song and catchy lyrics.

15Take Me Home
22? How is that even possible?
This song has stood the test of time better than some of his others. Still love this song and the lyrics.
This is one song I listen to over an over again it impired me so much from emmanuel omoroje

16That's Just the Way It Is
The song is great

17Strangers Like Me

Best song from his Both Sides album, I love it if it would've been on the number one charts! This is a very beautiful mid-tempo ballad that Phil could've ranked it in his own compilation of best songs.
One of the favorite of Phil Collins, though it's a lost gem and could have been possible if it were his hit?

19Both Sides Of The Story

20Dance Into the Night
Phil Collins' best song!

21Find a Way to My Heart
My absolute favorite from But Seriously... Which seriously is the only album I have which I love every single track. This should have been a top 3 choice. If you haven't heard it, please do. You will not be disappointed. Great lyrics and fabulous instrumentals!
Most underrated song from his... But seriously album!
Agreed. This track is really underrated.

22Son of Man
It's from Tarzan! The fast-paced tempo and the lyrics are undeniably catchy and uplifting.
This song deserves to be in the top five at LEAST!

24A Groovy Kind of Love
When I am feeling blue... All I have to do is take a look at you and I am not so blue...
