#18 – Peter Gabriel – “Solsbury Hill” – (1977)

I always forget this song actually came out in 1977. It could’ve come out during the 80s at any point and been right at home (maybe that’s because it charted in 1977 and in 1983 on the Hot 100… which is odd because it wasn’t because of a movie). This was Gabriel’s first single after he left Genesis. It only reached #68 on the Hot 100 (in ’77 – it was #84 in ’83), but it’s one of his most famous songs and it’s a really good one at that.
