21st September 2015: Peter Gabriel – Spiel Ohne Grenzen

Language – German

Translation – Games without frontiers

I have become very interested lately in how songs I know really well sound when sung in other languages.  This song works so well in German, the clipped vocals fitting well with the way the English version sounds.  Let’s just ignore the part about Adolf…

Peter Gabriel made a whole album in German.  Good effort, sir!  Also, Wikipedia has taught me that his middle name is Brian, and that in 1970 he played the flute on Cat Stevens’s album, Mona Bone Jakon, which is a personal favourite of mine 🙂
