    This is the consensus.

    A bit louder for the people in the back.

    I'm talking about this man right here: Sir Phil Collins.

    Say it with me, "Phil, Phil, Phil!"

    Aka the genius who blessed us with the gift that is the Tarzan soundtrack.

    The entire album is a B-O-P.

    Tarzan came out in 1999. But for whatever reason, the internet has suddenly remembered the beauty of the soundtrack.

    I’m sorry but this is hilarious cause Phil Collins really didn’t have to go so hard on it 😂😂😂

    This is what I imagine the actual recording process looked like.

    And I for one, think it's high time — HIGH TIME — that Phil gets the praise he has ALWAYS deserved.

    "You'll Be in My Heart" even won an Oscar in 2000 for Best Original Song.

    It made my little 5-year-old heart feel things I never thought possible.

    The Tarzan soundtrack is a genuine masterpiece and I refuse to entertain anyone who thinks differently.
