* RecursiveReality: The video to ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qt87bLX7m_o Steam]]'' begins with the view of space and stars with Earth closing in and ends with zooming in on somebody's skin, brief glimpse of cellular structure, DNA, individual atoms and interatomic space which becomes the interstellar space. Unfortunately, most broadcasts [[TheyJustDidntCare cut the first 10-20 seconds]] and the final makes little sense.

Then came 1986, and his album ''So'' along with it. It was a smash hit that gave Gabriel his greatest mainstream success, featuring some of his most famous songs (particularly [[DoubleEntendre "Sledgehammer"]] and [[Film/SayAnything "In Your Eyes"]]). Six years later came ''Us'', followed (almost ''ten years later'') by ''Up'', with his most recent being a CoverAlbum, ''Scratch My Back''. He has also done work for various films, most famously singing Randy Newman's "That'll Do" for the film Film/BabePigInTheCity and for writing and performing "Down To Earth" for ''WesternAnimation/WallE'', each earning Academy Award nominations. [[note]] losing to songs for ''The Prince Of Egypt'' and ''Slumdog Millionare'', repectively. [[/note]]

** He has also contributed single tracks to tribute & benefit records, and to many movie soundtracks, including Movie/{{Babe}}, Movie/{{WALL-E}}, Movie/{{Gremlins}}, and ''The Wild Thornberrys Movie'', which for many fans (especially due to the long gap between albums) take on the rarefied air of B-sides as well, and many become fan favorites.
