Peter Gabriel - Sledgehammer  

One of Peter Gabriel's most well-known songs, Sledgehammer was the first single to be taken from the So Album, and peaked at #4 in the UK. However, it was a #1 in both the U.S. and Canada. The video was very influential and received critical acclaim due mainly to it's stop motion animation.

However, this chart hit had been a long time in coming for Peter Gabriel, as his last hit single was Biko, released way back in 1980 and peaking at #38 in the UK singles charts.

Sledgehammer was Peter Gabriel's biggest hit in North America and ties with Games Without Frontiers as his biggest hit in the United Kingdom.

The So album which was released in May 1986 proved to be his most successful, reaching 3x Platinum status in the UK and 5x Platinum in the U.S.
