One More Night is the first single from Phil Collins’ third album, No Jacket Required. “One More Night” was Phil Collins’ second U.S. number-one single, following “Against All Odds”, and was his fourth single to reach the top ten in the UK, peaking at number four on the singles chart. The video features Collins playing the piano in a downtown bar.

Collins was playing around with his drum machine when he started saying the chorus of the song. He later recalled that “The rest of the song was written very quickly.” The video features Collins playing the piano in a downtown bar. The music video for the song was filmed at a pub owned by Richard Branson in London. Its B-side in the UK was “I Like the Way”, while the U.S. received “The Man with the Horn”.

Robert Hilburn of the Los Angeles Times originally disliked the song “One More Night”, but later praised the song, saying that “Collins’ soulful but polite vocal style is also capable of capturing the pain of going through yet one more night without her.” Isaac Guzman of the New York Daily News said that the song brought about “snuggle-inspiring tenderness”.

However, Keegan Hamilton of the Riverfront Times said that the song was the worst track on the album, saying that “The album’s introspective slow jam wallows in self-pity.” “It’s minimalist, as far as the ’80s go, relying mostly on a shaker, a crisp drum machine and echoing keyboards. It ends with a saxophone solo so smooth that I can’t believe it’s not butter,” adds Keegan.
