Check out this amazing rendition of this memorable track:
It's funny, I've never liked that song. I realize that so many recognize something about it and that era of Peter Gabriel that I did not.
However, I noticed that I really liked the version posted here. Really
liked it. Two things I noticed, when the song wasn't so overdone as was, I think, the production on the original, the song has great qualities when it has the ability to breath a little.
I should also mention, in addition to all the other talents of Mr. Castleton, he has a really wonderful voice I found very compelling.
