DON´T GIVE UP-PETER GABRIEL & KATE BUSH


"Don't Give Up" is a duet recorded by Peter Gabriel and Kate Bush for Gabriel's album So. The single version spent eleven weeks in the UK Top 75 chart in 1986, peaking at number nine. It describes the despair of a man - apparently an army veteran ("I was taught to fight, taught to win, but no one wants you when you lose") - who feels that the economic system has no place for him, and the support and wise counsel sung in the refrain by Bush. There were two videos created for this song by Godley & Creme. The first consisted of a single take of the singers in an embrace, as the sun enters total eclipse and re-emerges. The second featured Gabriel and Bush's faces superimposed over film of a town and its people in disrepair.
