Peter Gabriel – In Your Eyes

“In Your Eyes” is a song by English rock musician Peter Gabriel from his fifth solo album So (1986). It features Youssou N’Dour singing a part at the end of the song translated into his native Wolof.

It reached No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard Mainstream Rock Tracks on September 13, 1986, and peaked at No. 26 on the Billboard Hot 100 in November.Gabriel released two extended versions of the song as a 12″ vinyl single in the US. The first (the Single Mix) ran 6:15. The second (the Special Mix) ran 7:14. In Australia, “In Your Eyes” peaked at No. 97 in November 1986.

The track was featured in the teen drama film Say Anything… (1989) starring Ione Skye and John Cusack.The song was the finale of the Secret World Tour and is the final track on the 1994 Secret World Live album, where it is over 11 minutes long and includes the extra lyrics from the Special Mix, in addition to solos by the other singers and players.
