"The Man with the Horn" is a song performed by Genesis frontman Phil Collins, and released as a B-side for two singles from No Jacket Required. The song was originally recorded during sessions for Collins' second album, Hello, I Must Be Going!, in 1982, although It appeared as the B-side to "Sussudio" in the U.K., and as the B-side to "One More Night" in the United States. The song was re-written for an episode of Miami Vice in which Collins guest-starred called "Phil The Shill." The song was renamed "(Life is a) Rat Race.".[1] Collins has said he has "no emotional attachment" to the song.[2] The song was not released as a single (nor was it included on any album). However, it charted at #38 on the Mainstream Rock Chart.[3]
