                          Modern Love
                        by Peter Gabriel
                    off Peter Gabriel (1977)

NOTE: I think Tony Levin used a 5-string (Music Man, no doubt) on this, 
      which would make the arpeggio-like run up to high C in the chorus 
      a bit easier.  Then again, it's Tony Levin...
