It's sad that only about 3 Peter Gabriel songs get any radio play in the USA anymore, (Big Time, Sledgehammer, and In Your Eyes.all great songs, don't get me wrong.) but it's great that his music has found a home in various movie and video game soundtracks. I know he did LoveTown for "Philadelphia" , and Burn you up, Burn You Down and Curtains were featured in URU and Myst IV respectively, but just recently did I watch the Val Kilmer movie "Red Planet" and lo and behold, The Tower That Ate People was featured during the ending credits! Has anyone else heard PG music in movies or tv or video games that some of us may have missed?

perhaps Last temptation of Christ? the complete soundtrack is by Peter.
After wachting completly this movie, I finnally understood why catholic poeple putted fire on cinemas in France.
(I was not unsensitive to the message and definitivly, I will never understand religious integrists)

"I Grieve" was used in Smallville during the funeral scenes for Clark Kent's father~

Hmmm.there's a film by Wim Wenders called "Until the End of the World" which featured "Blood of Eden" in it at one point. The Travolta film "Phenomenon" had "I Have the Touch" in it (not to mention Heather Nova re-worked a version of that song for the end-credits of "The Craft.")
Here' in the States (well in New York, particularly) when I want to hear classic rock, I listen to a station called Q104.3 and they play a lot of Gabriel. they even have what they call back-wall songs (lost classics that haven't seen much airplay), but oddly enough, when they say they're playing a back-wall Gabriel hit, it's usually "I Don't Remember," or "Games Without Fronteirs." That's not really lost classics! How bout, "The Family and the Fishing Net?" or "Lay Your Hands On Me?" or "Intruder!"
