A Groovy Kind of Love is a pop song written by Toni Wine and Carole Bayer Sager for the Screen Gems music publishing company.

Phil Collins recorded a new version of “A Groovy Kind of Love” in 1988. He had originally suggested the song as a good one for collaborator Stephen Bishop to record, with Collins producing, but decided to record it himself when he took a starring role in the film Buster, which had a 1960s setting. The song was originally released on Buster: The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, and later appeared on several Phil Collins compilation albums.

This version went the Mindbenders release one better, hitting #1 in both the U.S. and UK charts, and it remains the only Collins single to top the charts in both countries. It also reached #1 on the U.S. Adult Contemporary chart. The song earned Collins a nomination for Grammy Award for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance in 1989; he lost to Bobby McFerrin’s song “Don’t Worry, Be Happy”.
