95 Songs of Summer, #59 - "Games Without Frontiers" (1980)

Today we're going to stick with the weekend theme of Summer 1980, and feature Peter Gabriel's great song "Games Without Frontiers" from his brilliant third album.

I wrote about the album earlier this year as part of my Top 50 of all time - as I said then, even though "So" (also great) was more popular, I think this represents his best work - edgy, even frightening in a way that "So" was not (although to be fair, it came close).

If looks could kill
They probably will 
In games without frontiers
War without tears
