Some Anglo For Your Ear: Peter Gabriel’s “Solsbury Hill”

My friend Fabio from Rome suggested I post this Peter Gabriel tune. He’s a huge fan and is flying to Locarno, Switzerland to see him perform on July 8th. I couldn’t find a proper video for “Solsbury Hill,” but that’s where the brilliance of YouTube comes in. Some clever user cobbled together 25 years of footage from Gabriel’s live shows, using the song as a backdrop. Worth a look and a listen.

While not British himself - he was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri - he once received inordinate hospitality in London for sharing the name of a dead but beloved EastEnders character. His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
