Eyes of the world.

"Biko (Video Mix)" - Peter Gabriel
This version of Gabriel's tribute to South Africa's Steve Biko came out  in 1987 as part of the movie Cry Freedom - about Biko's struggle against Apartheid. Some new guy named Denzel Washington was nominated for Best Supporting Actor for that movie too. Biko, the song, was originally released in 1980 and featured (you guessed it) on the 1st season Miami Vice episode Evan. There are probably a million live versions of this song out there but I think this is probably the best. I've also included the original b-side's single edit and No More Apartheid by Gabriel in this download.
