Been listening to some of his album re-issues, and I'm reminded of how many truly excellent songs this man has made over the decades. So give me your top 5 Phil Collins songs. No Genesis, but duets/collaborations are fine.

Here are mine:

  • In the Air Tonight
  • I don't Care Anymore
  • Sussudio
  • Inside Out
  • Against All Odds

Find a Way into my Heart
Like China
Wear my Hat
Take Me Home
In the Air Tonight

Not in order. There are just soooo many great songs to choose from, and I was listening to my Phil Collins collection recently. These are the songs I end up listening to over and over.

Hand in Hand

Take Me Home

Against All Odds

The Roof is Leaking

I Wish It Would Rain Down


I'm such a fan of his work, this list will likely change in a month!  The reissues have been a blast - I have been seeing him live since I was a teenager, and it's great to have the live tracks on disc.  His new autobiography, NOT DEAD YET, is a fantastic book - a revealing look somone at the center of the development of both progressive rock and pop music.  

And bonus points for naming his book after a Monty Python line!

I was only going to buy two of those reissues, Tim - Face Value and No Jacket Required - but I've ended up buying five! In the process discovering a lot of songs I didn't pay much attention to at the time, but which are great.

In my re-listening, I find No Jacket Required my least favorite (too synth I guess) and ...But Seriously my favorite. So much variety and depth!

I hope this mini renaissance gets his
music more air play. He's one of my
favorite singer/songwriters.

I actually prefer him as a solo artist over his work with Genesis, but he's great either way.
