Big time - Peter Gabriel

Peter Gabriel's song 'Big time' is often compared to his previous hit 'Sledgehammer', because both tracks are uptempo, both come from the same album 'So' (1987) and both were promoted by music videos that used several animation techniques. Still, 'Big time' was not the big hit 'Sledgehammer' was. In the Netherlands, 'Big time' peaked at number 24 and in the UK it reached number 13. It was the first Peter Gabriel single that was also released on the new cd-single format.

The song deals with a man's efforts to achieve success - but his vision of success is quite peculiar and naive.

My collection: 7" single no. 524
Found: Free Record Shop, Den Haag, 1987
Cost: 6 guilders
