"Do You Remember?" is a single performed by Phil Collins released in 1990 from his album ...But Seriously. The song had minor success in European countries, but went to number one in both Canadian and the U.S Adult Contemporary chart; it also peaked at number two on the U.S. Hot 100 Airplay and number four on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart that same year.[1] It became the third Top 10 hit from the album.

A live performance of the song also appears on the Serious Hits... Live! album. The live version was released as a single in the United Kingdom, while it was not released as a single in the United States. The single reached #57 on the UK Singles Chart.

The song was written by Collins and produced by Collins and Hugh Padgham. Singer-songwriter Stephen Bishop is a backing vocalist on the track.[2] The song's lyrics are from the perspective of a man whose relationship is failing, due to his lover's neglect. An instrumental cover performed by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra was released later. It was extremely popular in Bulgaria during the early 1990s, due to a then-famous teenage TV program using it while showing its closing credits. The song was also featured in the United States Army aviation action movie Fire Birds starring Nicolas Cage and Sean Young.
