Phil Collins: My Life in 15 Songs

The singer on the critics who hate him, the rappers who love him and why he's also a little sick of "Sussudio"

The Beatles, "A Hard Day's Night" (1964)

I got the chance to be in the audience when the Beatles filmed A Hard Day's Night. They wanted kids that were screaming, and I just sat still, which is probably why I was cut out of the film. Thirty years later I was asked to narrate a documentary about the movie. I got to go through the outtakes, and I found a guy wearing a pin tie that looked just like me, sitting completely still. I remember thinking, "For crying out loud, will you stop screaming? Let's listen to the music!"
