80s Song of the Day: In Your Eyes by Peter Gabriel

All my instincts, they return
And the grand facade, so soon will burn
Without a noise, without my pride
I reach out from the inside

In Your eyes

In Your Eyes by Peter Gabriel was released on September 2, 1986, with In Your Eyes (Special Mix) as the B side. It was the third single from the album So.

The song peaked at No. 26 on the Billboard Hot 100. It was not released as a single in the United Kingdom.

In 1989, In Your Eyes was featured on the Say Anything… soundtrack. It was the song playing in the movie’s iconic scene where John Cusack’s character holds a boombox over his head outside of his love interest’s window. At that time, the song reentered the U.S. charts but only reached No. 41.
