Remember a bald pop vocalist who played the drums and had some of the biggest hit singles of the 1980s? Yes, you win the prize if you guessed Phil Collins, formerly of Genesis, but much bigger as a solo pop artist. It had been 23 years since one of his albums appeared in the top 10 until this week. A one day Amazon 99 cent MP3 sale was enough to boost his greatest hits collection ...Hits into the top 10 for the first time. The set originally peaked at #18 but is sitting at #6 this week with 40,000 copies sold. The collection includes top 10 hit singles ranging from "You Can't Hurry Love" to "Another Day In Paradise." Phil Collins reached the top 10 on the pop singles chart in the US 14 times. His most recent was "Do You Remember?" in 1990. ...Hits is Phil Collins' fifth top 10 hit solo album.
