Recently I had occasion to go through my old CDs, and zoomed in on my Peter Gabriel CDs. I used to listen to him a lot almost 20 years ago. My then boyfriend was a great fan, and so I kind of caught the bug. I bought several CDs, and even went to a concert, which was hugely enjoyable. But in the last ten years or so, Gabriel had somehow slipped from my radar. On rediscovering the CDs, however, I loaded some songs on my MP3 player and started listening.
And boy, are those songs catchy! The CDs I am listening to right now are SO and US, and on each there are songs that are played around my head all day long. Favorites right now are Red Rain and Digging in the Dirt. It doesn’t harm either that many of Peter Gabriel’s songs are love songs!
