Another Day in Paradise - Phil Collins

Another Day in Paradise

...But Seriously
80s pop Phil Collins soft rock rock


Another Day in Paradise is a song by Phil Collins, released as the first single from his number-one album, ...But Seriously (1989). Written to bring attention to the problem of homelessness, the song was a substantial departure from the dance-pop music of his previous album, No Jacket Required (1985). The song was a number-one hit around the world, and his most successful song. It eventually won Collins and producer Hugh Padgham the 1991 Grammy Award for Record of the Year. The song also won Best British Single at the 1990 Brit Awards. Collins's version was listed at #86 on Billboard's Greatest Songs of all time. The song was another huge hit for Collins. On December 23, 1989, it became Collins's seventh (and to date, final) number-one single in the United States. The song was also the final number-one song of the 1980s in the U.S., and remained at number-one for four weeks, which sometimes classifies the song as a hit from the 1990s as well. It also saw out the 1980s and saw in the 1990s at the top of the German singles chart. The song had already reached number two in the UK in November of that year. The single version is slightly different from the album version in that it uses a shorter intro. David Crosby also appears on the backing vocals. The track is also recorded using a tuning that is approximately two-thirds of a quarter tone sharp of the standard A440. Listeners to BBC Radio 1's breakfast show, hosted by Simon Mayo, voted for the Phil Collins original as the Best Single at the 1990 BRIT Awards.

Another Day in Paradise - Phil Collins

She calls out to the man on the street
"Sir, can you help me?
It's cold and I've nowhere to sleep,
Is there somewhere you can tell me? "

He walks on, doesn't look back
He pretends he can't hear her
Starts to whistle as he crosses the street
Seems embarrassed to be there

Oh
Think twice
'Cause it's another day for you and me in paradise
Oh
Think twice
'Cause it's another day for you
You and me in paradise

(Think about it)

She calls out to the man on the street
He can see she's been crying
She's got blisters on the soles of her feet
She can't walk but she's trying

Oh
Think twice
'Cause it's another day for you and me in paradise
Oh
Think twice
It's just another day for you
You and me in paradise

Just think about it

Oh lord!
Is there nothing more anybody can do?
Oh-oh whoa lord!
There must be something you can say

You can tell from the lines on her face
You can see that she's been there
Probably been moved on from every place
Cause she didn't fit in there

Oh
Think twice
'Cause it's another day for you and me in paradise
Oh
Think twice
It's just another day for you
You and me in paradise (Another day in paradise, ooh)

Just think about it
Hmm-mmm
Think about it

It's just another day
For you and me
In paradise
It's just another day
For you and me
In paradise
(Para, paradise)

(Paradise) It's just another day
For you and me (Ooh-ooh)
(Just think about it) In paradise
(Paradise) It's just another day
For you and me
(Just think about it) In paradise
(Para, paradise)

(Ooh-ooh, in paradise) It's just another day
For you and me
(Hmm-mmm, paradise) In paradise
It's just another day (Paradise)
For you and me (Just another day)
(In paradise) In paradise
(Para, paradise)
