He had some monster his in the 80s and that trend continued through the 90s and early 2000s. From epic love songs used in Hollywood blockbusters like 'Against All Odds' to the Disney smash 'Tarzan' where he penned the track 'You'll Be In My Heart'.
My favourite use of Phil's music came in this scene from 'American Psycho' and then in this scene from 'The Hangover'. Phil Collins' music is timeless.
His song 'You Can't Hurry Love' might well be a cover of one of Motown's finest, The Supremes, but he manages to pull it off and then some.
Phil's a drummer and a singer-songwriter. A rare combo to say the least - and if you've ever tried doing either you'll appreciate this man's great talents.
Genesis' video for 'Land Of Confusion' belongs in 'Greatest Music Videos of All Time' - watch it again and I think you'll agree.
I've talked enough - let Phil's body of work speak for itself. Hopefully you too will re-discover this man's amazing music. Here are my top 5 favourite songs from Phil.
'Don't Lose My Number'
'Against All Odds'
'In The Air Tonight'
'Groovy Kind Of Love' *bonus
