Monday long song: Mercy Street

So was huge for Peter Gabriel, wasn't it, on both sides of the Atlantic, powered along at first by the video-friendly hits Sledgehammer and Big Time, and then by the collaborations (Kate Bush on Don't Give Up and Youssou N’Dour on In Your Eyes). But this is tucked away on there too, and reminds me that Peter is worth revisiting when I have more time.


  1. I was about to write a comment along the lines of this being a bit of a deep cut, but since it comes from one of the most successful albums of the 1980s, I suppose it can't really be classed as that deep. It had certainly slipped from my memory though and it's great to hear it again. Thanks for digging it out Martin.

    1. As you rightly say, it's not that deep. Good though, isn't it?
