Water as one of the substances you can’t live without very well, has a reccuring role in the world of music. To specify it a bit, we now a have a look at a special form of it. The flood.
So here’s our list of songs with, from and about “Flood”.
Four songs and stories after the jump and below…
Flood, the producer.
The nickname of the British music producer and engineer Mark Ellis. He has worked on many well-known albums and songs from acts like Depeche Mode, U2, New Order, The Smashing Pumpkins, Editors and a lot more. Here’s more about Flood. Ellis got his name as a young studio runner when he had to take requests from artists for tea and something to eat…

Peter Gabriel’s “Here Comes The Flood”.
A song from the first solo album of the former Genesis frontman. The 1977 album, simply titled “I”, contained Peter Gabriel’s first hit “Solsbury Hill”, but also the song “Here Comes The Flood”. Peter Gabriel once said the song sounds over-produced. Here’s a live-version of the song, recorded in Milan, Italy in 2003.
Thanks everyone for all my birthday wishes - I have never felt so well remembered. PG—
