There's a fascinating story behind some of the lyrics on Games Without Frontiers, and a whole pile of facts and comments found on songfacts.com. Some maybe true, others perhaps rubbish. Can any of you knowledgeable folk sort out the truth from the untrue facts on this superb tune?
I think you might be right, especially given that it has a different co-producer and that there are clearly cymbals on this version. Gabriel subsequently had the idea of not using any cymbals on any track on the LP.
The version of "I Don't Remember" on the B-side is completely different to the album variant with more of an acoustic feel to it. The song had featured on PG's previous tour for his second album so this version may be a demo that pre-dates the recording session for the third album?
