A very good pick up Robert Joseph Wareham. Somewhere Jesus fits in, after all it is HIStory isn't it.

Solsbury Hill was the Church he attended as a kid. This was a spiritual experience. When yoh talk to God, your heart goes Boom. RevRob

Peter's best yet

This is my favorite Peter Gabriel Song, it makes me think of when a person dies and their spirit has left their body and they don't know they've died yet... And God suddenly starts speaking to you and you have no choice but to listen to his invitation to heaven , but you have to make a choice to go home with him or stay. I would like to have this song played at my funeral services. I think it would help everyone to have closure a little more easier?.

My favorite song ever. Peter hit perfection with this song. He sings it with his heart. If this doesn't make u believe in yourself no song ever written will. Perfect symmetry, poetic genius.

I like this song.

The song reaches to many levels- great lyrics that point to religious awakening, but the timing is really about his departure from genesis and becoming an artist on his own. With this liberty- he had an epiphany of his own. I have one every time I listen. Thank you lord for Peter and songs like this!

Funny how I never liked Genesis, but absolutely love this (just post-Genesis ) . It's brilliant still after many years.

The comment Clearly was high doesn't know much about Mr. Gabriel, who by his own admission can barely handle a glass of wine. Pete is just *naturally* that way!!!

Just going day to day. My life is still in a rut. I'm pretty sure I'm hearing that Eagle's voice too but I don't know what to do yet. I definitely know what it's saying though. @mr.mark: Lmao! Be careful when you're eating and singing at the same time.. you don't want to choke. (Lol that's not what the Eagle said)

Like to sing this when eating steak..

I don't think it's possible to not love this song. Uh oh...it's 1986 again, summer, and I'm hearing Peter Gabriel do it live as the sun sets at an outdoor concert. Sweet memory.

It is about leaving Genesis.
