A top 5 single in the UK, Games Without Frontiers is taken from Peter’s third self titled solo album. Recorded both at his home studio at Ashcombe House, near Bath, and at London’s Townhouse Studios, the album was produced by Steve Lillywhite.

The album saw Peter change his writing style; now the rhythm came before the melody and the songs were built up on top of the rhythmic sequences. The album also contains Peter’s first overtly political song in the shape of totemic closer Biko. It also features notable contributions from Kate Bush, Paul Weller, Phil Collins and David Rhodes.

Hans plays with Lotte
Lotte plays with Jane
Jane plays with Willi
Willi is happy again
Suki plays with Leo
Sacha plays with Britt
Adolf builds a bonfire
Enrico plays with it

Whistling tunes we hide in the dunes by the seaside
Whistling tunes we’re kissing baboons in the jungle
It’s a knockout

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

Andre has a red flag
Chiang Ching’s is blue
They all have hills to fly them on
Except for Lin Tai Yu
Dressing up in costumes
Playing silly games
Hiding out in tree tops
Shouting out rude names

Whistling tunes we hide in the dunes by the seaside
Whistling tunes we piss on the goons in the jungle
It’s a knockout

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

  1. Will stand the test of time!! shame ..the generations these days are being brainwashed by the same style over and over on the radio ….there where so many great bands different and selling records ! This song will fover be a great!

  2. The later verse should say "pissing on goons in the jungle".
    Probably in a class of it's own for style, originality, and artistic archetypes

  3. Close your eyes and pretend that Benny Hill is singing this.

    Now try hearing it without thinking of the chubby comedian wearing spectacles and saluting every other verse.
    You're welcome.
