Shock The Monkey – Song Of The Day

Shock The Monkey

Peter Gabriel‘s first real solo hit in the US, “Shock The Monkey” was released back in 1982 and boasted a rather dark and odd video as well as a hugely catchy hook which was definitely hard to shake off. The song had an engaging driving beat, a cool chorus and great vocal work from Gabriel himself. There’s a slightly unsettling atmosphere to this song and yet it also manages to be quite light and tons of fun overall, proving once and for all that monkeying around can certainly have its advantages.
