Against All Odds - Fingerstyle Guitar_Page_1Against All Odds Fingerstyle Tabs

Phil Collins is a prolific songwriter, singer and drummer. In 1984, he was asked to write a song for a movie titled “Against All Odds”. While he was on a tour during that time, he viewed the movie on a videocassette recorder and eventually agreed to become part of the movie soundtrack. He then created the song with the same title as the movie.

The song got positive feedback from music critics that it then reached the number one spot of Billboard Hot 100 in the United States. Several artists like Westlife and Mariah Carey rendered the song in their own musical style which also gathered good response from music fans.

The power ballad song won the Grammy Award in 1985 for the Best Vocal Performance – Male Category. It was also nominated as Best Original Song for Academy Award and Golden Globe Award. Since then, due to its popularity, Against All Odds was also used as theme song on different movies and TV shows. (Source: Wikipedia)

Take a look at me now

Well there’s just an empty space
And you coming back to me is against the odds
And that’s what I’ve got to face, oh
