  • Peter Gabriel - Sledgehammer

    5:45

    The official Sledgehammer video in HD. Directed by Stephen R. Johnson, produced by Adam Whittaker. Claymation, pixilation, and stop motion animation provided by Aardman Animations and the Brothers Quay.

    Sledgehammer was the first single from the multi-platinum selling album So, the first of Peter’s studio albums to have a proper title and a watershed release in his career. Its marriage of the artistic and the commercial made for an indisputable success, with the album quickly sitting atop the album charts on both sides of the Atlantic.

    You could have a steam train
    If you'd just lay down your tracks
    You could have an aeroplane flying
    If you bring your blue sky back
    All you do is call me
    I'll be anything you need

    You could have a big dipper
    Going up and down, all around the bends
    You could have a bumper car, bumping
    This amusement never ends

    I want to be - your sledgehammer
    Why don't you call my name
    Oh let me be your sledgehammer
    This will be my testimony

    Show me round your fruitcage
    'Cos I will be your honey bee
    Open up your fruitcage
    Where the fruit is as sweet as can be

    I want to be - your sledgehammer
    Why don't you call my name
    You'd better call the sledgehammer
    Put your mind at rest
    I'm going to be - the sledgehammer
    This can be my testimony
    I'm your sledgehammer
    Let there be no doubt about it

    Sledge Sledge Sledgehammer

    I've kicked the habit, shed my skin
    This is the new stuff, I go dancing in, we go dancing in

    Oh won't you show for me and I will show for you
    Show for me, I will show for you
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, I do mean you, only you
    You've been coming through
    Going to build that power
    Build, build up that power, hey
    I've been feeding the rhythm
    I've been feeding the rhythm
    Going to feel that power build in you

    Come on, come on, help me do
    Come on, come on, help me do
    Yeh, yeh, yeh, yeh, yeh, yeh , yeh, yeh, you
    I've been feeding the rhythm
    I've been feeding the rhythm
    It's what we're doing, doing
    All day and night

    Having left Genesis the previous summer, Peter’s first solo album arrived in February 1977. He was 26. With legendary producer Bob Ezrin taking charge the intention was to make something more direct and tougher than what had come before. Solsbury Hill was the first single to be taken from the album, though the video you see here was created much later just messing around at Real World with a painter friend of mine Graham Dean. says Peter.

    Climbing up on Solsbury Hill
    I could see the city light
    Wind was blowing, time stood still
    Eagle flew out of the night
    He was something to observe
    Came in close, I heard a voice
    Standing stretching every nerve
    Had to listen, had no choice

    I did not believe the information
    I just had to trust imagination
    My heart going boom boom boom
    Son, he said
    Grab your things, I've come to take you home

    To keep in silence I resigned
    My friends would think I was a nut
    Turning water into wine
    Open doors would soon be shut
    So I went from day to day
    Though my life was in a rut
    'Til I thought of what I'd say
    Which connection I should cut

    I was feeling part of the scenery
    I walked right out of the machinery
    My heart going boom boom boom
    Hey, he said
    Grab your things, I've come to take you home
    back home

    When illusion spin her net
    I'm never where I want to be
    And liberty she pirouette
    When I think that I am free
    Watched by empty silhouettes
    Who close their eyes but still can see
    No one taught them etiquette
    I will show another me

    Today I don't need a replacement
    I'll tell them what the smile on my face meant
    My heart going boom boom boom
    Hey I said
    You can keep my things, they've come to take me home

    Climbing up on Solsbury Hill
    I could see the city light
    Wind was blowing, time stood still
    Eagle flew out of the night
    He was something to observe
    Came in close, I heard a voice
    Standing stretching every nerve
    Had to listen, had no choice

    The official Games Without Frontiers video.

    Follow Peter Gabriel on Spotify:
    Options to buy or stream:


    A top 5 single in the UK, Games Without Frontiers is taken from Peter's third self titled solo album. Recorded both at his home studio at Ashcombe House, near Bath, and at London’s Townhouse Studios, the album was produced by Steve Lillywhite.

    The album saw Peter change his writing style; now the rhythm came before the melody and the songs were built up on top of the rhythmic sequences. The album also contains Peter’s first overtly political song in the shape of totemic closer Biko. It also features notable contributions from Kate Bush, Paul Weller, Phil Collins and David Rhodes.

    And I greet them with the widest smile
    Tell them how my life is one big adventure
    And always they're amazed
    When I show them round the house to my bed
    I had it made like a mountain range
    With a snow-white pillow for my big fat head
    And my heaven will be a big heaven
    And I will walk through the front door

    In this proud land we grew up strong
    We were wanted all along
    I was taught to fight, taught to win
    I never thought I could fail

    No fight left or so it seems
    I am a man whose dreams have all deserted
    I've changed my face, I've changed my name
    But no-one wants you when you lose

    Don't give up 'cause you have friends
    Don't give up you're not beaten yet
    Don't give up I know you can make it good

    Though I saw it all around
    Never thought that I could be affected
    Thought that we'd be last to go
    It is so strange the way things turn
    Drove the night toward my home
    The place that I was born, on the lakeside
    As daylight broke, I saw the earth
    The trees had burned down to the ground

    Don't give up you still have us
    Don't give up we don't need much of anything
    Don't give up 'cause somewhere there's a place where we belong

    Rest your head
    You worry too much
    It's going to be alright
    When times get rough
    You can fall back on us
    Don't give up
    Please don't give up

    Got to walk out of here
    I can't take anymore
    Going to stand on that bridge
    Keep my eyes down below
    Whatever may come
    and whatever may go
    That river's flowing
    That river's flowing


    Moved on to another town
    Tried hard to settle down
    For every job, so many men
    So many men no-one needs

    Don't give up 'cause you have friends
    Don't give up you're not the only one
    Don't give up no reason to be ashamed
    Don't give up you still have us
    Don't give up now we're proud of who you are
    Don't give up you know it's never been easy
    Don't give up 'cause I believe there's a place
    There's a place
    Where we belong


    Don't give up
    Don't give up
    Don't give up

    The second single from Peter's sixth album, US, was released in 1993.

    MERCY STREET for Anne Sexton

    Looking down on empty streets all she can see
    Are the dreams all made solid
    Are the dreams made real

    All of the buildings, all of the cars
    Were once just a dream
    In somebody's head

    She pictures the broken glass, pictures the steam
    She pictures a soul
    With no leak at the seam

    Let's take the boat out
    Wait until darkness
    Let's take the boat out
    Wait until darkness comes

    Nowhere in the corridors of pale green and grey
    Nowhere in the suburbs
    In the cold light of day
    There in the midst of it, so alive and alone
    Words support like bone

    Dreaming of mercy street
    Wear your inside out
    Dreaming of mercy
    In your daddy's arms again
    Dreaming of mercy street
    'Swear they moved that sign
    Dreaming of mercy
    In your daddy's arms

    Pulling out the papers from drawers that slide smooth
    Tugging at the darkness
    Word upon word
    Confessing all the secret things in the warm velvet box
    To the priest - he's the doctor
    He can handle the shocks
    Dreaming of the tenderness - the tremble in the hips
    Of kissing Mary's lips

    Dreaming of mercy street
    Wear your inside out
    Dreaming of mercy
    In your daddy's arms again
    Dreaming of mercy street
    'Swear they moved that sign
    Looking for mercy
    In your daddy's arms again

    Mercy, mercy, looking for mercy
    Mercy, mercy, looking for mercy

    Anne, with her father is out in the boat
    Riding the water
    Riding the waves

    Red rain is coming down
    Red rain
    Red rain is pouring down
    Pouring down all over me

    I am standing up at the water's edge in my dream
    I cannot make a single sound as you scream
    it can't be that cold, the ground is still warm to touch
    (Hay ay ay we touch)
    This place is so quiet sensing that storm

    Red rain is coming down
    Red rain
    Red rain is pouring down
    Pouring down all over me

    Well I've seen them buried in a sheltered place in this town
    They tell you that this rain can sting, and look down
    There is no blood around
    See no sign of pain
    Hay ay ay no pain
    Seeing no red at all, see no rain

    Red rain is coming down
    Red rain
    Red rain is pouring down
    Pouring down all over me

    Red rain
    Putting the pressure on much harder now
    To return again and again
    Just let the red rain splash you
    Let the rain fall on your skin
    I come to you defences down
    With the trust of a child

    Red rain coming down
    Red rain
    Red rain is pouring down
    Pouring down all over me
    And I can't watch anymore
    No more denial
    It's so hard to lay down in all of this
    Red rain coming down
    Red rain is pouring down
    Red rain is coming down all over me

    I see it
    Red rain coming down
    Red rain is pouring down
    Red rain is coming down all over me
    I'm bathing in
    Red rain coming down
    Red rain is coming down
    Red rain is coming down all over me
    I'm begging you
    Red rain coming down
    Red rain coming down
    Red rain coming down
    Red rain coming down
    Over me in the red red sea
    Over me, over me, red rain

  • Peter Gabriel - Blood Of Eden

    6:36

    Blood of Eden features Sinead O'Connor and is taken from Peter's sixth album, US, was released in 1992.

    The album US continued the now well-established Gabriel motif of mixing high technology with decidedly analogue contributions from musicians from West Africa, Egypt and Armenia. Reunited with Daniel Lanois as co-producer, Peter extends the hand of collaboration to Led Zeppelin’s John Paul Jones, Brian Eno, Peter Hammill and Sinead O’Connor.

    I caught sight of my reflection
    I caught it in the window
    I saw the darkness in my heart
    I saw the signs of my undoing
    They had been there from the start

    And the darkness still has work to do
    The knotted chord's untying
    The heated and the holy
    Oh they're sitting there on high
    So secure with everything they're buying

    In the blood of Eden lie the woman and the man
    With the man in the woman and the woman in the man
    In the blood of Eden lie the woman and the man
    We wanted the the union oh the union of the woman, the woman and the man

    My grip is surely slipping
    I think I've lost my hold
    Yes I think I've lost my hold
    I cannot get insurance any more
    They don't take credit, only gold
    Is that a dagger or a crucifix I see
    You hold so tightly in your hand
    And all the while the distance grows between you and me
    I do not understand

    In the blood of Eden lie the woman and the man
    With the man in the woman and the woman in the man
    In the blood of Eden lie the woman and the man
    We wanted the the union oh the union of the woman, the woman and the man

    At my request you take me in
    In that tenderness I am floating away
    No certainty, nothing to rely on
    Holding still for a moment
    What a moment this is
    Oh for a moment of forgetting
    A moment of bliss
    Oh....

    I can hear the distant thunder
    Of a million unheard souls
    Of a million unheard souls
    Watch each one reach for creature comfort
    For the filling of their holes

    In the blood of Eden lie the woman and the man
    I feel the man in the woman and the woman in the man
    In the blood of Eden lie the woman and the man
    I feel the man in the woman and the woman in the man

    In the blood of Eden we have done everything we can
    In the blood of Eden, so we end as we began
    With the man in the woman and the woman in the man
    It was all for the union, oh the union of the woman, the woman and the man

  • Peter Gabriel - Red Rain

    6:07

    Stream / download the concert here:

    Filmed in high definition, Growing Up Live was originally released on DVD in 2003 but never on Blu-ray or digitally. The DVD was re-released in October 2016 alongside Blu-ray and digital download versions, for the first time.



    In 2002 and 2003, following the release of his album “Up”, Peter Gabriel went on the road with his “Growing Up” tour, once again collaborating with production designer Robert Lepage to create a spectacular and theatrical live experience.

    The tour took in thirty-two cities across the USA, Canada and Europe with the Growing Up concert film, directed by Hamish Hamilton, being shot over two nights at the FilaForum in Milan in May 2003 with Peter Gabriel and the band performing “in the round” at the centre of the arena.

    Still Growing Up, also directed by Hamish Hamilton, features footage from over 20 shows and festivals across Europe shot during June and July 2004.

  • Peter Gabriel - Biko

    6:28

    “You can blow out a candle, but you can't blow out a fire. Once the flames begin to catch, the wind will blow it higher.”

    The video was originally created for The Peace Through Music: A Global Event for Social Justice which took place in December 2020, and was hosted on the Playing for Change social media channels. The event was part of the activities to commemorate the United Nations 75th anniversary, and championed the full protection and promotion of human rights for all.

    This stand alone video launched in honor of Black History Month in February 2021. The song was inspired by the death of anti-apartheid activist Steve Biko while in police custody, and the song’s relevance still holds true with the unfortunate police brutality that continues to take place in the USA, Nigeria and many places around the world. More than 25 musicians from seven countries join Gabriel for this global rendition to share a message of unity, peace, and hope, including Beninese vocalist and activist Angélique Kidjo, Silkroad’s Yo-Yo Ma, and bass legend Meshell Ndegeocello.

    Produced by Sebastian Robertson and Mark Johnson

    Peter Gabriel In Your Eyes original version from 1986 with lyrics from the album So. Please leave your comments!

    Lyrics:
    Love I get so lost, sometimes
    Days pass and this emptiness fills my heart
    When I want to run away
    I drive off in my car
    But whichever way I go
    I come back to the place you are
    All my instincts, they return
    And the grand facade, so soon will burn
    Without a noise, without my pride
    I reach out from the inside
    In your eyes
    The light the heat
    In your eyes
    I am complete
    In your eyes
    I see the doorway to a thousand churches
    In your eyes
    The resolution of all the fruitless searches
    In your eyes
    I see the light and the heat
    In your eyes
    Oh, I want to be that complete
    I want to touch the light
    The heat I see in your eyes
    Love, I don't like to see so much pain
    So much wasted and this moment keeps slipping away
    I get so tired of working so hard for our survival
    I look to the time with you to keep me awake and alive
    And all my instincts, they return
    And the grand facade, so soon will burn
    Without a noise, without my pride
    I reach out from the inside
    In your eyes
    The light the heat
    In your eyes
    I am complete
    In your eyes
    I see the doorway to a thousand churches
    In your eyes
    The resolution of all the fruitless searches
    In your eyes
    I see the light and the heat
    In your eyes
    Oh, I want to be that complete
    I want to touch the light,
    The heat I see in your eyes
    In your eyes, in your eyes
    In your eyes, in your eyes
    In your eyes, in your eyes

  • Songs that Changed Music: Peter Gabriel - Sledgehammer

    18:14

    ➡️➡️Learn more about Sledgehammer by Peter Gabriel:

    Certainly, the next decade became a time of discovery for Gabriel – personal and musical. On the musical side, he began releasing a series of four self-titled albums , which his fans have since provided with their own nicknames (“Car” (1977), “Scratch” (1977), “Melt” (1979) and “Security” (1982)). While several of the solo albums include charting singles, it was Gabriel’s fifth album, So (1986), that gave him his first and only number one hit – “Sledgehammer.” With an irresistible groove, a horn part straight from Stax, and brilliant production, “Sledgehammer” transformed Gabriel from an edgy seventies rocker into a eighties pop superstar.

    Although “Sledgehammer” would turn out to be a massive success, appealing to a large and diverse audience, Gabriel did not have such grand intentions with the track when he began.. Gabriel reflected on the song’s success in 2012 explaining:

    “With “Sledgehammer,” everyone thinks, “Oh, he must have created that to get a hit.” And it wasn’t done that way. In fact, Tony Levin reminded me that he was packing his bags to go home, and I called him back into the studio, saying “I’ve got this one idea that maybe we can fool around with for the next record – but I like the feel.” That was “Sledgehammer.” It was late in the day and we just fell into the groove, landed a beautiful drum track on it, a great bass line and it all came together.”

    The song certainly does come together, bringing innovative sounds and diverse influences into one incredible track. It opens with a synthesized Japanese shakuhachi flute sample, played on Gabriel’s Fairlight CMI. Pulling from his progressive rock roots, the free flowing flute sound draws the listener quietly in before the horn section dramatically announces the onset of the song’s magnetic groove. Drummer Manu Katche captures a funk influence with an eighties pop of the gated reverb snare. Tony Levin’s bass line is exciting and catchy, while also sounding impossibly smooth. The classic fretless tone is paired with the attack of a pic, giving it that bright and rhythmic edge. He runs this through an octave pedal, giving it that modern sound. The guitars provide the funky yet stable core that allow the active bassline to take center stage.

    Undeniably critical to this entire mix is the soul influence and energy of the horn section. Expressing his excitement about having Wayne Jackson – who had played in the house band at Stax records and toured with Otis Redding – play trumpet for the track, Gabriel told WMMR Radio in 1986:

    “as a teenager, soul music was one of the things that made me want to be a musician. It was really passionate and exciting… Wayne Jackson, who plays on that track, was also with Otis Redding and was touring with him when I saw them in London. So that was a thrill for me, just to get a whole lot of fan stories. But I think the song was more influenced by many of those Stax and Atlantic tracks rather than Otis particularly.”

  • Peter Gabriel - Lovetown

    5:31

    Peter Gabriel's song 'Lovetown' was first released in February 1993 on the soundtrack to the film 'Philadelphia' and was included on the film's soundtrack album. Directed by Michael Coulson, the video for the track was inspired by the artwork of Yayoi Kusama, who Peter collaborated with on the video. He had also worked with Yayoi Kusama in 1992 when Yayoi Kusama was one of 11 artists who created images for Peter's 'Art From Us' project. Lovetown was not included on the 'Us' album but was released as a single in 1994. The video was released as part of a compilation of Peter's videos entitled 'Play' in 2004. Yayoi Kusama also worked with Peter on the EvE CD-ROM, released in 1996.

  • Afro Celt Sound System - When Youre Falling Official Video

    3:47

    Purchase/stream 'Further In Time':
    'When You're Falling' is taken from the Afro Celt Sound System album Volume 3: Further In Time.

    Originally, Iarla Ó Lionáird intended to sing the song, but as it took shape it seemed more suited to a vocalists whose cross-cultural connections are well documented:

    Peter Gabriel has been a great mentor and role model for me, says Iarla. Years ago I remember travelling in Ireland listening to his music, wondering if I'd ever get to meet people like him. I have been honoured to work with him in the past, but part of the magic of 'When You're Falling' was that we didn't meet— he just took the song and put his own turn on it.

  • Peter Gabriel - I Have The Touch

    4:42

    Hi to all! This is a video I've made today of I Have the Touch by the one and only Peter Gabriel. All the footage is taken from the 50-minute documentary shown on The South Bank Show back in '83 which chronicled the process of Peter Gabriel and Co. writing, demoing, recording and performing the fourth album. Centered mainly on I Have The Touch, San Jacinto and Rhythm of the Heat, there is a lot of footage of I Have the Touch. The other songs aren't really video songs and therefore I chose this. Enjoy! Peace, love and music! No copyright infringement whatsoever. All original content belongs to Peter Gabriel and Real World Records. This is an alternative perspective and I will remove this video if I am requested to do so by the aforementioned.
