Best Peter Gabriel SongsMagnolia
The Top Ten
Agreed. Amazing. Song is just amazing
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. - Acdcdanny2 Comments
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

In My Top 100 songs of all time.
The song that really changed his career
The best song of all time #1 in my book!
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.
Should have been the first single from the Up album. Truly beautiful song.
Underrated masterpiece, listening to it right now
Digging in the Dirt and That Voice Again are two underrated PG songs
Great song and the glamour of the 80’s was great
Extremely emotional and meaningful. It's a strong ending to the car album and one of those stand out songs. Just BEAUTIFUL.
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.
Masterpiece. Great lyrics. Check out Natalie Merchants version on YouTube
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 - el_manana
A great song should easily be in the top ten!
How is not already on here?!?! It's a terrific song!
Wasn't even on the list! This song features Phil Collins on drums and believe it or not was the first time the new gated drums sound was discovered in the studio, before In the Air Tonight
Needs to be number one. Phil collins played on this track
Great song, while the lyrics might be simple, the song is still worth a listen.
Does this qualify? If so, it should be on this list.
Great rhythm to this song. - MaxStickies
#3 after sledgehammer and games without frontiers - CygnusX99
Cool arrangement, original idea
