333 – Peter Gabriel – Don’t Give Up (1986)
Written by Peter Gabriel
Produced by Peter Gabriel and Daniel Lanois
Label – Geffen
Gabriel is an outstanding white soul singer and “Don’t Give Up” is undoubtedly the best example of r&b/soul tinged balladry he would ever release. Ably assisted by Kate Bush (apparently Dolly Parton refused his offer), the duet pull the heart strings with this passionately delivered masterpiece.
