Phil Collins

One More Night

Composed by Phil Collins

Song Review by

Genesis drummer Phil Collins was experiencing the pains of divorce. His bandmates Mike Rutherford and Tony Banks suggested that the band take a break from each other to work on solo projects while Collins finalized the divorce. During the hiatus, Collins began recording songs on his eight-track audio recorder in his home studio. One day, he realized that he had enough material for an album. The tracks were the basis for his four-million Top Ten album Face Value. "One More Night" from his No Jacket Required album earned the singer/songwriter his second number one pop hit and solidified his reputation as a romantic balladeer. Co-produced by Collins and Hugh Padgham, "One More Night" went gold, going to number one pop for two weeks, number 80 R&B, and number one adult contemporary for three weeks in the spring of 1985. No Jacket Required sold over seven million copies, parked at number one pop for seven weeks, and won a Grammy for Album of the Year, which included the number one pop single "Sussudio," "Don't Lose My Number," and "Take Me Home."
