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

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

Even made mike cry...

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...

How is this not number one!? :O
In the air tonight is good. But this is so much better.

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.

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

3Against 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.

Should be number one

4You'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'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!

5Easy 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.

I just get a good feeling when I listen to that song. It's the best song on the record. It has got power.

6One More Night

Beautiful song. Sax solo kills me every time

7I Don't Care Anymore

Song was in Grand Theft Auto and always reminds me of Michael, vouch

Yea I don't know why this is not number 2. Need I say more?

Perfect song with great tune. Why its number 8 I won't understand, I agree with 2 though or even number 1.

Love the drums in this song.

8I Wish It Would Rain Down

Should be number 1 in my opinion

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

Just never gets old. Could listen to it a million times.

10You 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!

The Contenders

11Can'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.

12Do You Remember

I remember. Don't worry.

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

14On My Way

So spiritual, it really inspires me to go on my way. The moment is played in Brother Bear is part of my childhood.

Such a fun song! - Curti2594

15Something 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.

So catchy! This song is great.

16A 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...

17Take 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

18Son 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!

19That's Just the Way It Is

The song is great


This is the most worthy listening to song by Phil Collins. To me it's his best song ever. It is underrated by people who don't listen to it but those who listen to this song agree it's his greatest song ever.

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?
