Here Comes the Flood

Originally constructed as a grandiloquent, orchestrally enhanced prog-rock epic on his 1977 debut, Peter Gabriel has subsequently reinvented the quietly desperate 'Here Comes the Flood' as a humble piano ballad, which did the neat trick of effectively enhancing the song's inherent personal-apocalypse lyrical context. Check out a live-in-concert take of one of Gabriel's most fan-beloved songs, performed during a gig in Philadelphia in 1987, mounted in support of his 1986 blockbuster record 'So'.
