Thursday’s Theme Music

As I’ve thought about what was happening and where I’ve decided to go, Peter Gabriel’s song, “Solsbury Hill” (1977) came to me. The song is about making decisions, taking risks, and changing, coming about when he left Genesis, the group he’d helped begin almost a decade before, to begin a solo career.

Many of the versus reflected his uncertainty about the decision.

To keep in silence I resigned
My friends would think I was a nut

Turning water into wine
Open doors would soon be shut

So I went from day to day
Though my life was in a rut

‘Til I thought of what I’d say
Which connection I should cut

    1. Oh, yes, those take me back. Until about his fifth solo album, I don’t think many of my friends enjoyed Gabriel’s music. Most were unfamiliar with it, so PG’s music was one of those performers that I usually enjoyed on my own. Thanks for commenting. Cheers
