Can't get enough of his music.
"The place where I come from is a small town; they think so small they use small words ." the young generation of this time should listen to this.
Don't think PG was too proud of Big Time - saw him play at Mt Smart and he never played it
Good song
Last word of the lyric? Pants. Brilliant ode to political and corporate bigwigs

I believe Big Time has earned it's place next to Pink Floyd's Money and Dire Strait's Money for Nothing but will never get that kind of recognition because the latter are hugely popular group efforts and Gabriel's is a more sophisticate d avaunt guard solo effort.

This song is the theme song of a wrestlemania , 22 I thinque!!

Good tune, no matter who makes use of it!!

and I do love it when he allows those big words 2 come right out!
Petey at his best - "My parties have all the big names".
I still think Sledgehammer was Peter Gabriel's best song, ever.
"...a snow white pillow for my big fat head." Hey, THAT'S ME!
Peter hits the strides in this one..with a bit of satire
What a great album!!! I love this song! One of the better songs on the album and that's saying a lot. I will pray to a big god as I kneel in a big church! gotta love that?
