Solsbury Hill Peter Gabriel's Psychic Phenomenon

Solsbury Hill Peter Gabriel's Psychic Phenomenon

(The Spiritual Experience Behind the Song)

ByFernando Rodríguez

Regarding his song “Solsbury Hill”, Peter Gabriel has written: “It’s about being prepared to lose what you have for what you might get, or what you are for what you might be. It’s about letting go. By letting go, you create the space for something new to happen. It’s a personal struggle to learn to jump off the diving board.” The fundamental meaning of Gabriel’s words is to be willing to accept change within oneself; to let go of long held beliefs, opinions or perspectives in order to grow beyond them. This is very difficult for most adults to do without a personal revelation of some kind. So, if we take into consideration that the song - which is written in first person and symbolises a clear transformation in its main character’s inner world - is a direct result of a moment of meditation of Gabriel on Solsbury Hill, we can infer that the change (this particular change) within the English musician was sudden and not as a result of a gradual transition. Isn’t it reasonable to assume then that something significant happened in Peter Gabriel’s life while meditating on Solsbury Hill? The true status of Peter Gabriel, a man committed to his art and his condition as a human being, may yet be unveiled. The captivating theory developed in “Solsbury Hill: Peter Gabriel’s Psychic Phenomenon (The Spiritual Experience behind the Song)” promises to challenge all previous conceptions about this legendary artist. The debate is open, judge for yourself.
