This song has been a favorite of mine covered by my favorite music duo, Erasure. Today I found the first a “re-edit” which I think is pretty awesome. Still like Peter Gabriel’s original version too.
“Solsbury Hill” was recorded by British synth pop duo Erasure in 2003 for their cover versions album Other People’s Songs and released as a single in the UK on 6 January 2003 and in the US on 14 January 2003. The single reached # 10 on the UK chart in January 2003. The track was chosen for the album by Erasure member Vince Clarke. Clarke and singer Andy Bell turned the song into a mid-tempo electronic dance tune, displaying the signature Erasure sound. The only major change made to the structure of the song was the modification of the 7/4 time signature to a more basic 4/4—except for the chorus, which slips back into 7/4 time for one line.
