Best Peter Gabriel Songs

The Top Ten
1 Solsbury Hill Solsbury Hill Cover Art

Solsbury Hill is the best song ever sang by Peter Gabriel.
Should be number 1 all the way!

This is one of the greatest songs of all time! Should for sure be number 1!

Should defiantly be number 1 for his solo songs.

Agreed. Amazing. Song is just amazing

2 Games Without Frontiers Games Without Frontiers Cover Art

Wildly creative, seemingly out of nowhere given that it sounds like no song he created prior. This is the song - and by extension the album - that he intuitively knew he had in him when he left Genesis and would not be able to birth while with Genesis. His first two solo albums were really exercises in shedding Genesis...

"If looks could kill, they probably will"

Peter Gabriel is a genius

Great song, should be number #1

3 In Your Eyes In Your Eyes Cover Art

In My Top 100 songs of all time.

4 Lay Your Hands On Me Lay Your Hands On Me Cover Art
5 Sledgehammer Sledgehammer Cover Art

The song that really changed his career

The best song of all time #1 in my book!

This song reminds me of Claudio Castagnoli

Classic, no doubt.

6 Don't Give Up Don't Give Up Cover Art

One of the song, that returns me to normal life, when everything falls on me and I can't go futher.

One of his very best, has to be top 3 for me

7 Sky Blue Sky Blue Cover Art

Should have been the first single from the Up album. Truly beautiful song.

8 San Jacinto San Jacinto Cover Art

Underrated masterpiece, listening to it right now

9 Digging in the Dirt Digging in the Dirt Cover Art

Digging in the Dirt and That Voice Again are two underrated PG songs

10 Blood of Eden Blood of Eden Cover Art
The Contenders
11 Big Time Big Time Cover Art

Great song and the glamour of the 80’s was great

12 Here Comes the Flood Here Comes the Flood Cover Art

By far one of the most under-rated songs of all time - original album version was good... but version from "Shaking the Tree: 16 Golden Greats", utterly brilliant. So simple, serene, yet also deep, powerful, just amazing.

Extremely emotional and meaningful. It's a strong ending to the car album and one of those stand out songs. Just BEAUTIFUL.

13 Time of the Turning Time of the Turning Cover Art
14 Shock the Monkey Shock the Monkey Cover Art
15 Red Rain Red Rain Cover Art

Masterpiece. Great lyrics. Check out Natalie Merchants version on YouTube

16 Wallflower Wallflower Cover Art

This my pick for the most underrated Peter Gabriel song of all time. Imagine if the best elements of "Biko" and "Don't Give Up" were combined in one song. "Wallflower" would be the result. It has some of the most powerful lyrics in Peter Gabriel's entire career, and the music matches the tone perfectly.

17 Mercy Street Mercy Street Cover Art

One of those songs that comes back to haunt me every now and then, but in the best way. Beautiful, melancholy, and strangely heartwarming? How a song like this can be on the same album as Sledgehammer, demonstrates Gabriel's genius

18 Steam Steam Cover Art
19 Burn You Up, Burn You Down Burn You Up, Burn You Down Cover Art
20 Biko Biko Cover Art
21 Signal to Noise Signal to Noise Cover Art
22 Moribund the Burgermeister Moribund the Burgermeister Cover Art
23 Secret World Secret World Cover Art
24 Family Snapshot Family Snapshot Cover Art

How is not already on here?!?! It's a terrific song!

A great song should easily be in the top ten!
