I’m listening to UP as I write. I love listening to PG. I suffer from depression from time to time and for some reason I seem to connect with his music. Does any else feel his pain when he sings or am I deluded?
Not deluded. We all have different triggers when we listen to music.
Go with what suits you
I don’t get the same direct reaction, but I’m a complete emotional cripple in these things. I could well see that being a normal reaction to some of his music. Is there a particular track you get that feeling of pain from?
For me it’s his voice, he really does put everything into it.
Yes but for different reasons .
But yeah I have similar reactions to other artists.
Yes, same. Teenage decisions are hard to let go of. I couldnt stand that he was an artist and soooo worthy, even though, so good was his music, he spent time dressed as a fucking plant to get noticed. And as for his colab with Bush… No, give up immediately, you have no friends. Just. Fucking. Stop.
Recently, I listened to So all the way through. It’s fantastic!
Not really a fan of PG’s music but the whole WOMAD and Real World label thing is a great legacy.
You’re dead to me old man.
Maybe pain was the wrong word to use. All I know is that I like listening to his music. My wife on the other hand absolutely hates it
My BiL loves Peter Gabriel. Always moans when he comes he that I haven’t got anything of his on vinyl to play.
Then again he also likes Erasure
Memorably reviewed as sounding like a midddle aged man who needs a wee.
Mind you, I sort of like it…
Think I have 2 pg records
So and passion music for…
I’ve still not listened to either yet
Perhaps unwittingly this is up there with the best song reviews I’ve ever read.
Time to eject him from your family.
I always refuse to play it which annoys him to distraction. Last time he tried and failed he was drunk and really got the hump when I laughed at his request to his face. He then sulked and moaned he wanted to go home, and when SiL refused he tried to wander back the 8 miles himself in a huff. He was stopped by police who contacted us and commented that he was still complaining vociferously about my stubborn refusal to accept the talents of Andy Bell.
The planets must be aligned, this thread is littered with gold.
You know what you like and you like what you know
