We have arrived to the Finals for the Phil Collins March Madness Tournament. And we really should not be surprised by the finalists. Although “In the Air Tonight” was not a #1 hit, it is definitely one of the most popular ’80s tunes – thanks to Miami Vice and to the iconic drum riff. And “Against All Odds (Take a Look At Me Now)” is one of the more popular ballads of the decade. So, this should be an interesting ballad. This could be a close one!

It’s that time of year again! Welcome to the 5th Annual Return to the ’80s March Madness Tournament. If you are new to this site, each year one artist is chosen for the March Madness Tournament. We pit their own hit songs against each other. As with last year, voting will be done right here on the site, Twitter – @Returntothe80s, And the Return to the ’80s group page on Facebook.
This year we are going t=with the legendary Phil Collins. This will be his solo hits, and not Genesis songs, as he had enough to make the Sweet Sixteen on his own.
This Tournament is in collaboration with RealWeegieMidget Reviews as Gilll from that site reviews the Phil Collins film, Buster. Collins had a couple of hit songs from that movie. It was not widely seen in the U.S., so you may be interested in reading the review. So go check it out!
First, check out the podcast episode as we review each song in the tournament.
Now, let’s get going with the Sweet Sixteen! Voting will be open for this round until Sunday, April 3. The Elite 8 will be posted on Monday, April 4. In addition to voting on Twitter – @Returntothe80s and the Return to the ’80s group page on Facebook, feel free to comment your picks below. 1 vote per battle please.
