52 Songs for 52 weeks: Week 52 – Solsbury Hill by Peter Gabriel

This 52 week journey started a year ago with a Peter Gabriel and today it ends with Peter Gabriel.

Solsbury Hill, Gabriel’s first hit after leaving Genesis is the perfect way to end this list.  A great song full of hopefulness.  The imagery is outstanding and it is one of the greatest songs ever recorded.

Climbing up on Solsbury Hill
I could see the city light
Wind was blowing, time stood still
Eagle flew out of the night

It’s just a wonderful song.

And this live version – where Peter Gabriel sings Solsbury Hill while riding a bicycle is a clip that always puts me in a good mood.  gabriel is a guy who knows how to entertain and actually uses his music to make people feel happy.  What’s wrong with that?

Of course if you prefer the studio version – here it is:

That’s a wrap – 52 songs.  Get them in your music library.  Life is short – spend your day singing.
