Anything JUSTIN BEIBER related, Frog, I can't stand him.
He does have more hits than that, but as I'm not a big fan that follows him, anything I could give you would be the Tarzan soundtrack. He probably had more hits when he was with Genesis... but say Genesis to an average person on the street, and they'll either think Sega or Bible.Phil Collins - "In the Air Tonight" (actually one of my least favorite of his)
Then he came up with the Chipmunks, and that was a license to print money. I think Chipmunks more than Witch Doctor when I hear Dave Seville.David Seville - "Witch Doctor"
Wanna hear the worst part? Who let the Dogs Out wasn't even their song! They had a cover. They were famous for a song that wasn't even their's. And the only thing that's keeping that song down is every trailer with a movie that has a dog in it since then and forever more.Baha Men are an example of like Bobby McFerrin: they were an extremely obscure junkanoo group that nobody noticed... then they came out with "Who Let the Dogs Out?" which became the biggest hit of theirs ever, and brought them to people's attention, then they pretty much faded back into obscurity after that.
It's a shame that Phil Collins gets such a bad rap for his solo stuff that it obscures his work with Genesis. He was an excellent drummer, a pioneer in using electronic drums, and a good songwriter. His work with Genesis from 1976 to 1980 is great, but those eighties songs overshadow it.Phil Collins - "In the Air Tonight" (actually one of my least favorite of his)
