Games Without Frontiers – The Song
Games Without Frontiers is a song written and recorded by the English rock musician Peter Gabriel. It was released on his 1980 self-titled solo album and included backing vocals by Kate Bush. The song’s lyrics are interpreted as a commentary on war and international diplomacy being like children’s games. The single became Gabriel’s first top-10 hit in the United Kingdom. The song’s title refers to Jeux Sans Frontières, a long-running TV show broadcast in several European countries, in which teams of residents representing a town or city in one of the participating countries would compete in games of skill while frequently dressed in bizarre costumes. While some games were simple races, others allowed one team to obstruct another. The British version was titled It’s a Knockout, which Gabriel references in the lyrics.
