I just remembered how great this song is. Gabriel certainly wrote songs that spanned the gamut of styles from Sledgehammer to Biko to Moribund the Burgermeister. While I always loved his work with Genesis, and I enjoyed his solo work, I never obsessed over buying the "new" disc while growing up.
I got "turned on" to this song from, of all places, the film Angus, which included a sentimental scene that this song rose above. Gabriel has the perfect voice for this and I hope you like it too. Don't expect any hard rocking here... very mellow.
