Sussudio is a pop song by Phil Collins, released as a single in February 1985. The song is also the first track on Collins’ third album, No Jacket Required, released in January of the same year. The song entered frequent rotation on MTV in May, and by July 6, both the single and the album reached number one on their respective U.S. Billboard charts.

“Sussudio” was the first track released as a single in the UK, and the second to be released in the US. In the UK the song reached number 12 on the UK charts. In the US, the song entered frequent rotation on MTV in May, and by 6 July, both the single and the album had reached number one on their respective US Billboard charts. A remix of the song appeared on Collins’ 12”ers album.

Collins has said that he “improvised” the lyric. Collins was just playing around with a drum machine, and the lyric “sus-sussudio” was what came out of his mouth. “So I kinda knew I had to find something else for that word, then I went back and tried to find another word that scanned as well as “sussudio”, and I couldn’t find one, so I went back to “sussudio”,” Collins said. According to Collins, the lyrics are about a schoolboy crush on a girl at school. Collins’ older daughter has a horse named “Sussudio”.

There's a girl that's been on my mind
All the time, Su-Su-Sussudio, oh, oh
Now she don't even know my name
But I think she likes me just the same, Su-Su-Sussudio, oh, oh
