I heard it in a store today and knew PG's voice, but not the song. Can anyone help me? The lyrics had "falling" in them it sounded like a celtic song. I loved this song, but I can't find it in discography. I hope someone can help me. Thanks!

. . ."Volume III - Futher In Time" is the album by "Afro Celt Sound System", that features the song "When You`re Falling" with Peter on lead vocals.
Another song on this album is "Life Begin Again" featuring L.Zeppelin-singer Robert Plant on lead vocals.
- Go to the "REAL WORLD"-site on the right>>>>>>>>>>>
- there you click "REAL WORLD RECORDS" and then "Catalogue" to search for "Afro Celts" :
There are 5 albums and a special "DVD/plus Remix"-album called "POD" (click above on "DVD" - beside "VIDEO" and "FORUM", that includes also a remix of falling. You got the chance to listen to "audio samples" there.
To see a picture of Peter and Afro Celt-singer Iarla performing this song - click my "Warm Up 2007 tour-photo".
There is also a clip from "Letterman" on youtube with this song.

. . . better click "ARTISTS" instead of "Catalogue" - this will help you.
The album "Further in Time" was nominated for a "Grammy" - just like their album "Release" before with the title-track sung by Sinead O`Connor.
"Afro Celt Sound System" is still the biggest-selling act on Peter`s label "Real World Records".
Enough stories I`ve told - now it`s up to You - check it out.

The good thing on an Afro Celt-album is this excellent and delicate production-work, that was made. I missed to buy the latest 2 albums - but the 1st 3 albums got a high quality - very good music.
Anybody who likes Loreena McKennit, Clannad, The Chieftains, Massive Attack, Enya, Björk, Sinead O`Connor, Deep Forest, "Big Blue Ball", traditional Irish Music or so-called "Celtic" music, and even synthie-pop acts from the 80ies or Kraftwerk and even Peter Gabriel will also surely like "Afro Celts".
We find "Afro Celts" on a few movie soundtracks :
-"Stigmata" (with Patricia Arquette)
-"Gangs of New York" (Leo DiCaprio)
-"From Jungle to Jungle" (Tim Allen)
-"Long Way Down" (Ewan McGregor)
Beside all those "famous" guest singers like O`Connor, Gabriel or Robert Plant I personally like Iarla O`Lionairds voice AND songs most.
