Peter Gabriel’s “Sledgehammer.” What I am listening to on 02/13/2016


Artist: Peter Gabriel

Song: “Sledgehammer”

Album: So (1986)

Peter Gabriel’s solo career has given us some incredible music over the years. Earlier I wrote a piece on his masterful “Shock The Monkey.” Today I’m going back to him and covering “Sledgehammer.”

“You can have a steam train, if you just lay down your tracks.”


“You can have a big dipper, goin up and down and around the bends.”

Gabriel and his bumper car pals!

This is a fun, upbeat, quirky song with a quirkier video that had to be included in this ongoing ‘What I’m Listening To’ series.

    1. Look into the rest of the tracks on his ‘So’ album. Also check out his entire discography as a solo artist. He’s a international treasure.

      Now, if you are into Progressive rock, which I am not a fan of, but I respect the genre: check into Genesis when he was the lead in the early 1970s.

      Thanks for reading, and thanks for your comment. Be well, Andrew.
