Hello Music lovers,
My office deskmate Zack has been singing this song for months - it got stuck in his head one time and now he just brings it up out of nowhere. I wasnt familiar with it until he started belting it out after lunch one day I looked up the trippy video from 1986 and was thoroughly impressed!
The song is Peter Gabriels Sledgehammer, a dance-rock, soul track with synths and horns. The award-winning video is all stop-motion animation that looks like it took a long time to make. Gabriel later said that if anyone wanted to copy their idea for the video - good luck to them!
Highlights include a toy train set around his head and dancing featherless chickens. Ya gotta see em!
Peter Gabriel - Sledgehammer
This is actually Peter Gabriels only #1 Hit in the US Billboard charts, though we all know its only one of many great hits!

The top techno song of all time rang in the new year in Helsinki, complete with Darude himself and a firework show.
