    Ah, that's the chance:

    Peter Gabriel - Lay your hands on me



    and of course a live version:



    from Peter Gabriel's 4th album (1982). Still my favourite album from Peter Gabriel.

    Another masterpiece of a musical genius. Heard the album just yesterday again (for the umpteenth time in 38 years) and thought it would be a nice "challenge" to post all 8 songs of it here in this thread (although "Wallflower" and "San Jacinto" will a bit hard to do but maybe someone comes up with something that I can use these too.)

    Anyway, here's Lay your hands on me. Enjoy it!

    Count : 1 of 8 ;)

    Although I tend to enjoy Pete Gabriel when I come across him rather than seek him out, challenge/request accepted.

    I did see him at Reading Festival with Genesis in 1972. I remember quite a bit of that weekend but not all.

    National Jazz,Blues and Rock festival. Reading 1972

    San Jacinto should be a walk in the park. Wallflower looked more of a challenge until I remembered K.D. Lang. Over to you guys to take us down this potential dead end.

    So......

    Waltz Me To Heaven - Waylon Jennings



    I actually have a Waylon album but this is not on it. It can be found on Waylon's Greatest Hits Vol. 2 (which also has the Dukes of Hazard theme) as well as Nashville Rebel.

    Thanks, Habbin :thumb I knew I could rely on you in my quest to get (most of) the songs from Peter Gabriel's 4th album mentioned.

    Here's now Wallflower. This song has some personal meaning to me, always a bit emotional for me when I hear the song.


    "...You may disappear, you're not forgotten here
    And I will say to you, I will do what I can do "




    (edit: Changed the yt video with another one with lyrics)

    plus a version from 2010



    tbh I don't know if there's a following (I actually only know Wallflower from Bob Dylan which wouldn't help to get out of this.

    Maybe let us take "Wallflower" of 2 words Wall and Flower?

    Thx

    (PG IV) Count : 2 of 8 !

    Fear not Dirk - there's always a Blues.

    In this case, there's also a song that's called "The Wallflower (Dance with Me Henry)" in the Back to the Future soundtrack but was originally

    Etta James - Wallflower (Roll with me Henry)



    Edit: Apparently the original, wriitten by Etta, Hank Ballard and Johnny Otis and released by Etta James and the Peaches, WAS called The Wallflower. The lyrics are a bit saucy.

    Hmm bit tricky this wallflower business, so much so that I can only think of one song and that's Dylan's Wallflower. I reckon Diana Krall's cover is better though :umad But there doesn't seem to be any hardcore Bobby Zimmerman fans on here so I should be ok.

    Wallflower

    Back down the rabbit hole with @Vanni

    When I saw the Dylan/Wallflower connection, I was thinking of this song, which features the bedding plant if you look hard enough..



    Anyway, as I said above, the only way that I know out of this corner is a blues. By the skin of my teeth, from a 4 year old iTunes album,

    Somi - Wallflower Blues

    When anyone refers to Mr Dylan as a songwriting genius 'unparalleled' I always use his album Pat Garret & Billy The Kid as a pointer to the inherent flaws that has a tendency to haunt such luminaries when they fling out a an album with ten songs inclusive of only one that could be described as notable.
