Solsbury Hill

I think I really hate the Peter Gabriel song "Solsbury Hill". I've seen one too many trailers for pretentious indy films about self-discovery that has employed this song as background music. The song has become cliche through overuse, and the melody irritates in ways I can't describe.

Then again, if I were to make my own pretentious indy film about self-discovery, there'd be a scene where I was sitting in an asylum rec room playing chess against schizophrenic and then a nearby austistic kid would start playing the song on a slightly out of tune piano. And then suddenly my best friend would burst into the room and say: "Grab your things, I've come to take you home."

Yeah, I know that's goofy. But you know if you saw that scene in a movie you'd fucking love it.
