"The Man with the Horn" is a song performed by Genesis frontman Phil Collins, and released as a B-side for two singles from No Jacket Required. The song was originally recorded during sessions for Collins' second album, Hello, I Must Be Going!, in 1982, although It appeared as the B-side to "Sussudio" in the U.K., and as the B-side to "One More Night" in the United States. The song was re-written for an episode of Miami Vice in which Collins guest-starred called "Phil The Shill." The song was renamed "(Life is a) Rat Race.". Collins has said he has "no emotional attachment" to the song. The song was not released as a single (nor was it included on any album). However, it charted at #38 on the Mainstream Rock Chart.
