"Another Day In Paradise" was released on October 23, 1989 as the first single from Collins' fourth solo studio album But Seriously. The power ballad has as its subject the problem of homelessness. Collins sings the song from a third-person perspective, as he observes a man crossing the street to ignore a homeless woman, and he implores listeners not to turn a blind eye to homelessness because, by drawing a religious allusion: 'it's just another day for you and me in paradise'. Collins also appeals directly to God by singing: 'Oh Lord, is there nothing more anybody can do? Oh Lord, there must be something you can say'. "Another Day In Paradise" won a Grammy Award for the Record Of The Year at the 1991 awards ceremony and topped the hitlists in the United States, Canada, Germany, Belgium, Netherlands, Switzerland, Finland, Norway, and Sweden.
