A band formed in the mid-80s when Phil Collins broke off and decided to go on a solo career. There self-titled debut album made it big on the charts with two hit singles: "All I Need Is A Miracle" and "Silent Running." However, it was there 1988 album "The Living Years" that featured the smash hit title track. They are a combination of 80s Pop and Progressive/Arena Rock. Lead singer is Mike Rutherford.
A great band that all 80s fans should check out.

Oh, one correction! Paul Carrack is actually the lead singer, he also went off on his own temporary solo career between this band's albums; one in 1985, and another in 1988.
Mike and The Mechanics really should be more well-known
