Phil Collins recently revealed that he's gone back on his pledge to retire; he is writing new material and contemplating a return to the road, possibly even with Genesis. He hasn't released an album of original material since 2002's Testify and he hasn't done any extended touring since the 2007 Genesis reunion.

Now we have a question for you: What is your favorite Phil Collins song? For the sake of simplicity, we're going to skip the vast Genesis catalog and focus on his solo work. That still leaves you with plenty of options. Feel free to go with a huge hit like "Take Me Home" and "In the Air Tonight," a deep cut like "Everyday" and "Find a Way to My Heart" or covers he turned into hits again like "Groovy Kind of Love" or "You Can't Hurry Love." Vote for whatever you want, but please just vote once and only for a single song.

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
