TIP JAR
SLEDGEHAMMER - 1987
By Peter Gabriel
Directed by Steve Johnson
Fear of the "Uncanny valley" is seeing something artificial almost perfectly - but not quite - imitate a human. Many people felt that same discomfort with this video of a human almost perfectly - but not quite - imitate something artificial.

For Peter Gabriel's SLEDGEHAMMER, he used one of the biggest stop motion animation people in the business, Aardman Animations (Wallace and Gromit: THE CURSE OF THE WERE-RABBIT).

SLEDGEHAMMER

You could have a steam train
If you'd just lay down your tracks
You could have an aeroplane flying
If you bring your blue sky back

All you do is call me
I'll be anything you need

You could have a big dipper
Going up and down, all around the bends
You could have a bumper car - bumping
This amusement never ends

I want to be your sledgehammer
Why don't you call my name
Oh! let me be your sledgehammer
This will be my testimony

Show me round your fruitcage
'Cause I will be your honey bee
Open up your fruitcage
Where the fruit is as sweet as can be

I want to be your sledgehammer
Why don't you call my name
You'd better call the sledgehammer
Put your mind at rest
I'm going to be the sledgehammer
This can be my testimony
I'm your sledgehammer
Let there be no doubt about it

Sledge, sledge, sledgehammer

I get it right
I've kicked the habit
Shed my skin
This is the new stuff
I go dancing in
Oh, won't you show for me
And I will show for you
Show for me. I will show for you
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, I do mean you
Only you!
You've been coming through
I gonna build that power
Build-a, build up that power, hey!
I've been feeding the rhythm
I've been feeding the rhythm
Going to feel that power, build in you
Come on, come on, help me do, come on, come on, help me do
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, you
I've been feeding the rhythm
I've been feeding the rhythm
