Steam – Peter Gabriel

This song has a heavy funk component, which I owe to the horn sound. You don’t find many rock songs with horns. It also has a heavy bass line that seems to bring it more into the funk realm. It makes it a song I can imagine dancing to, albeit in my mangled off rhythm dancing but still.

Peter Gabriel has an amazing range. I always dig songs he utilizes his almost falsetto like in the chorus in this song.

The chorus lyrics are also amazing:
Give me steam
And how you feel to make it real
Real as any place you’ve been
Get a life with the dreamer’s dream
