They took the song in 1985 for the album Peter Gabriel 's, So that the song wrote. Don't Give Up was released in October 1986 . The song is about the consequences of the economic crisis in the 1980s, translated to the man (Gabriel), who no longer feel at home in that world, and the woman (Bush), which supports him. The video clip, which number belongs, let see Gabriel and Bush in an embrace. The clip was created by Lol Creme and Kevin Godley, former members of 10cc, which developed in the video clips had paid up.
The number delivered live problems on; Kate Bush then traveled only rarely; later at all anymore.
