Songs About Games, Games People Play

So here's a song topic that I don't recall us having played - Songs about Games. What songs can you think of about games, mentioned or implied, of any sort in the title or lyrics? 

 

So I'll start with this one as sort of a "blanket" title - - -

 

The Games People Play - Joe South 

"Music can change the world because it can change people." - Bono

  • The Hunter gets captured by the Game by the Marvelettes
  • A great song about the game of love and seduction!
Conversationalist

This song is about how the younger generation had fear about the future in 1965 called the Eve of Destruction by Barry McGuire if interested play it on utube brings back memories. It's not funny or humerous but not everything in the world is.

Back in the day, THE SPINNERS  had a song called "Games People Play"; (aka: "They Just Can't Stop It (The Games People Play)". It began with a piano/trumpet lead-in to the vocal which went:

"Can't get no rest, don't know how I work all day.

When will I learn? memories get in the way.

I walk around... can't hear a sound - folks talking loud... but I

Don't see at all. I gotta get away, gotta get away, I don't

Know where to go, it's hopeless so, I guess I'll leave it alone...."

Then comes a second verse, which leads to the Bridge:

"GAMES PEOPLE PLAY, NIGHT OR DAY THEY'RE JUST NOT MATCHIN',

WHAT THEY SHOULD DO, KEEPS ME FEELIN' BLUE,

BEEN DOWN TOO LONG, RIGHT WRONG I JUST CAN'Y STOP IT

SPENDIN' ALL DAY, THINKING JUST OF YOU...."

As you can probably tell, this was one of my favorite songs of all time.  GTT
