** "I Have the Touch", which went through three different permutations: the original track on ''Security'', a remixed version on the GreatestHitsAlbum ''Shaking The Tree'' (additional percussion track), and a completely remade version for the soundtrack to the JohnTravolta film ''Phenomenon'' (slower tempo, new lyrics, new instrumentation).

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]]but losing to songs for ''The Prince Of Egypt'' and ''Slumdog Millionare'', repectively[[/note]].

* LargeHam: He's toned it down since the Music/{{Genesis}} days, but he brought an unprecedented theatricality into rock music. Some of this naturally involved ChewingTheScenery when necessary. "GIANT HOGWEED IS AVENGED! HUMAN BODIES SOON WILL KNOW ANGER! KILL THEM WITH YOUR HOGWEED HAIRS! HERACLEUM MANTEGAZZIANI!"

* FreudWasRight:
** "And the bulge of my [[DoubleEntendre big big big big big big big big big big big big big big BIG]]!" Made even more apparent with the last word of the previous line being "circumstance," and what appropriate (non-appearing) word rhymes with circumstance?[[note]][[DontExplainTheJoke Pants.]][[/note]]
** "Hans plays with Lotte/Lotte plays with Jane/[[DoubleEntendre Jane plays with Willy]]/Willy is happy again".

* 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.
