"Love's Not a Competition (But I'm Winning)" is a song by English band Kaiser Chiefs, featured on the band's second studio album, Yours Truly, Angry Mob. It was released as a collector's edition 7" only single on 12 November 2007, with The Little Ones' cover of "Everything Is Average Nowadays" as a B-side.[1]

Chris Moyles has a long-running gag on his show, where Comedy Dave has likened the song to a-ha's "The Living Daylights".

The song's music video was directed by Jim Canty. It was filmed in September 2007 at Columbus Circle on West 59th and Broadway in New York City.[2]

The song was covered by Paramore on Radio 1's Live Lounge on 1 February 2008.

To date, it is the band's lowest charting single although considering the fact that it was released as the fourth single (let alone a limited 7" vinyl record) from the highly successful Yours Truly, Angry Mob. It peaked at #112 in the UK Singles Chart.
