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:
