Interesting. Love and Anger wasn’t a great song anyway, and I think only a single everywhere else because the US liked it and released it first, so there was a ready-made video for it. In the UK it barely scraped the top 40, peaking at 38.
I’d say it’s one of her most forgettable singles. Kate herself said it nearly didn’t make the album as she didn’t know what she wanted to say in it, or what it was about. It was only when musicians such as Dave Gilmour came in to play on it that it came to life. I don’t skip songs on albums, but I come close with that song.
It said at the end of the bit on Kate that she would be next seen in 1994, but I thought Rocket Man did well in Australia in 1991/92?
I like 'Love and Anger' but (unpopular opinion alert) it should have ended about 2+ minutes before it actually does.
While I like Peter Gabriel, and don't begrudge Kate taking influence from his music, it's got that typical Peter Gabriel 'let's extend the outro forever/until this runs to over 5-6 minutes long' (yes, I know 'Love and Anger' isn't quite
that long) song structure. See 'Rubberband Girl', 'The Big Sky', 'Deeper Understanding', 'Heads We're Dancing', 'Cloudbusting' and (brace yourself) 'Running Up That Hill' for other examples. They'd all be better songs in my opinion
if they ended at least a minute before they actually do.
Don't bore us - we've already had the chorus?
