“Another Day in Paradise” is a song performed by English recording artist Phil Collins. Produced by Collins along with Hugh Padgham, it was released as the first single from his number-one album …But Seriously (1989). As with his song for Genesis, “Man on the Corner“, the track has as its subject the problem of homelessness; as such, the song was a substantial departure from the dance–pop music of his previous album, No Jacket Required (1985).
Collins sings the song from a third-person perspective, observing as a man crosses the street to ignore a homeless woman, and he implores listeners not to turn a blind eye to homelessness because, by drawing a religious allusion, “it’s just another day for you and me in paradise“. Collins also appeals directly to God by singing: “Oh lord, is there nothing more anybody can do? Oh lord, there must be something you can say?”
