This Day In Music, April 3rd

On this day in 1985: Phil Collins was enjoying his second and final week in the #1 spot on the U.S. singles charts with “One More Night.” “One More Night” was Phil Collins’ second U.S. #1 single,  following “Against All Odds.” In the U.S., the single entered the Billboard Hot 100 at number 50 on the chart dated February 9, 1985. It hit number one seven weeks later and remained on top for two weeks.

The song’s music video, directed by Jim Yukich, features Collins playing the piano in a downtown bar. It was filmed at a pub owned by Richard Branson in London (the same club used for the “Sussudio” video, but looking different because the bar is now closed and this clip is shot in sepia tone, while “Sussudio” was full-colored.)
