CSPC: Phil Collins Popularity Analysis

Streaming Part 3

The lack of popular songs from Both Sides and Dance into the Light is visible once again, this time with their weak streams. They combine for less than 40,000 EAS.

The music of Disney movies is forever popular among kids. Tarzan is no exception. The album has 5 songs over 25 million streams on Spotify, led by You’ll Be in My Heart at 108 million. It must be said that while Disney Soundtracks are rarely 100% linked to one artist, Collins is responsible for all its songs, singing all of them and even performing versions translated into foreign languages. At 315,000 EAS, the record is his biggest one on streaming platforms!

Just one question, how do you guys measure ASR?


I think it’s would be a very good idea to do the same work for Peter Gabriel and, first, for Genesis…
We’ read here that Phil Collins and Paul McCartney are the only artists who are above the 100 million sales for their work with their solo career AND for their main band. For Macca, the work has been done, and well done, IMO.
But for Phil Collins, we just have a part of the picture… Hope for Genesis CSCP in the next future… Fingers crossed !


Genesis is top 10 on the requests list. You can vote for them here.


“But for Phil Collins, we just have a part of the picture”

I couldn’t agree more, basically half of his career hasn’t been studied, which is a little strange considering we have Sting/The Police, Black Sabbath/Ozzy, Neil Young/CSNY, Paul Simon/Simon & Garfunkel…etc.

His total with Genesis would be around 255 million EAS, i.e. more than Madonna. I think he deserves a complete study of his career.
