Agreed. "Sledgehammer" had a great video, but the song sans video I always found kind of "Meh…". I liked "Big Time" better purely as a song than "Sledgehammer", but it's still not nearly as good as "Solsbury Hill".

No sorry, incorrect, it's the one that started it all:

Games Without Frontiers

Andre has a red flag
Chiang Ching's is blue
They all have hills to fly them on
Except for Lin Tai Yu
Dressing up in costumes
Playing silly games
Hiding out in tree tops
Shouting out rude names


But So is great as an album, no denying that. So on that one, the correct one is:
Red Rain

While you all are not far off (which is probably not possible with Peter Gabriel's songs anyway) the correct answer is "Here comes the flood".

Hey guys,
Absolutely definitely "Don't Give Up"....
The only other song anywhere close to it is "Digging In The Dirt"....
Cheers,

Solsbury Hill was his first single as a solo artist, not Games Without Frontiers. And I agree with Airstud - it's the correct Peter Gabriel sing.

Don't know what I did wrong with my reply above but it got buried in Tugg's quote so here it is:

The correct song has to be Biko. The song is about the killing of Stephen Biko in a police cell in South Africa in 1977.

It was business as usual, in police room 619.

I just listened to Solsbury Hill. I agree, the best for me.

Wasn’t online for the last twelve hours due to flying from Manila to Istanbul... Red Rain is the song I would have posted immediately. The drums and the bass line in that special section (forgot how you call it, the special eight times at the end of a classic pop or rock song...) where he sings:

Putting the pressure on much harder now
To return again and again
Just let the red rain splash you
Let the rain fall on your skin
I come to you defences down
With the trust of a child...
