Best Phil Collins Songs

The Top TenXW

1In 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!

Totally deserves #1.

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 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.

Number one easily...

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!

Best song ever. Definitely #1

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

7True 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

8Easy 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.

This should be in the top 3 at least, one of the best song ever

13A 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...

The song take me back to 80's when I was still young and hot

14You 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!

This is one of his best party favorites. - EpicJake
