Best Phil Collins Songs

The Top TenXW

1Another 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 it's 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.

Love it! That's my father's favorite. Song...

2In 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

This song is about the time he was a child and went swimming with his friend at night time, his friend started drowning and there was a guy at shore watching him drown, Phil wanted him to help but the man stood there and did nothing, his friend drown and died. Phil saw the man some years later and dedicated this song to him

Ridiculous that this song barely even cracked the top 20 on Billboard. Yes it's simple, but it's powerful. Probably his best song.

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!

It is a good vary good and

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.

The song kicks up so much of nostalgia, that I still rate it as simply his most popular number

The last 2 minutes of the song are so powerful! I love this song. Never gets old.

Without doubt his best song

10Do You Remember

I remember. Don't worry.

The Contenders

11You 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. - fidelcanojr

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!

13True 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 - Curti2594

I love that dedicate 2 my wife name shirley
