They don't make 'em like Phil Collins used to

I was flicking through radio stations, and hit Gold FM in the expectation of hearing some Queen (based on my calculations you've got a 47% chance of heaving Queen whenever you tune in), but instead landed on Phil Collins - Something Happened On The Way To Heaven

Who makes music like this any more? What happened to 'adult-contemporary' pop in general? (No, Michael Buble doesn't count, crooners = meh) Perhaps I've got a warped view of how popular this sort of stuff was given that this is what my parents would have been listening to in the late 80s.

Phil's territory has got to be ripe for the semi-ironic-but-not-really retread by now right? Right? In any case, suggestions for recent Phil Collins-esque music would be welcomed.
