Buster: The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack is the soundtrack for the 1988 British film Buster. The album is essentially a collection of oldies, tucked in between two Phil Collins songs that were recorded for the film, in which he starred. "Two Hearts" was specially written for the film, having earned a Grammy Award for Best Song Written Specifically for a Motion Picture or Television in 1989, a Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song (tying with "Let the River Run" from Working Girl by Carly Simon) as well as an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Song, and "A Groovy Kind of Love" with a Grammy Award nomination for Best Pop Vocal Performance, Male was a remake of a song taken to #2 in the UK singles charts in 1965 by The Mindbenders. Both were released as singles, and topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart, with "A Groovy Kind of Love" also reaching #1 in the UK. Other new songs include Collins' "Big Noise" and The Four Tops' "Loco in Acapulco", co-written by Collins. The soundtrack received at the Brit Awards in 1989 the award for British Soundtrack Album, while Collins received the award British Male Artist for his contribution to the soundtrack album.

"Two Hearts" and "A Groovy Kind of Love" were not released on a solo Phil Collins album until 1998's ...Hits; however, live versions appeared on his Serious Hits... Live! album in 1990.
