"Foolish Games" is a song by Jewel released as her third/fourth and final single, taken from her debut album Pieces of You. It was also the third single to be lifted from the Batman & Robin motion picture soundtrack. Jewel re-recorded the single for the soundtrack to produce a more radio-friendly version, similar to her other singles "Who Will Save Your Soul" and "You Were Meant for Me". This versions is shorter than the album version by one verse, and also appears on the soundtrack of Batman & Robin.
The song details the frustration and agony of knowing that the intensity of one's love is not reciprocated by one's lover. The song parallels Bruce Wayne's relationship with Julie Madison, as well as his friendship/partnership with Dick Grayson/Robin. The melodic line and chord progression of the verses in "Foolish Games" carry echoes of "Diamonds & Rust", recorded by Joan Baez.
A CD single for the song was not issued in the United States. However, a re-released version of the "You Were Meant for Me" single CD had a hidden bonus track of the single version of "Foolish Games".
