Best Peter Gabriel Songs


The Top Ten

1 Solsbury Hill

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. - Acdcdanny

By far his best work

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

2 Games Without Frontiers

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...

Way ahead of its time.

Peter Gabriel is a genius

The intro fits perfectly with the Globglogabgalab song.
But still a great song. - 445956

3 In Your Eyes


4 Lay Your Hands On Me
5 Sledgehammer

The song that really changed his career

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

6 Don't Give Up

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

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

7 Sky Blue
8 Blood of Eden
9 Digging in the Dirt
10 San Jacinto

Underrated masterpiece, listening to it right now

The Newcomers

? Down the Dolce Vita

Cool arrangement, original idea

The Contenders

11 Big Time

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

12 Time of the Turning
13 Shock the Monkey
14 Here Comes the Flood

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.

Great song, while the lyrics might be simple, the song is still worth a listen.

36 Darkness

Does this qualify? If so, it should be on this list.
