Chris Isaak, Wicked game (1989)

Wicked game is een nummer over obsessieve liefde en werd pas bekend nadat de instrumentale versie te horen was in de film "wild at heart" van David Lynch. Later werd de song gebruikt in een commercial voor de Jaguar X-type en in een episode van Friends, wanneer Rachel en Ross voor de eerste keer de liefde bedrijven.

De videoclip in wit/zwart werd gemaakt door modefotograaf Herb Ritts en won diverse prijzen. In de clip verleidt model Helena Christensen Isaak op een strand.

Zelf heb ik het nummer toendertijd grijs gedraaid. Zonder enige schroom kan ik zeggen: het is een van de weinige liefdesliedjes die ik echt goed vind.


The world was on fire and no one could save me but you.
It's strange what desire will make foolish people do.
I never dreamed that I'd meet somebody like you.
And I never dreamed that I knew somebody like you.

No, I don't want to fall in love. (This girl is only gonna break your heart)
No, I don't want to fall in love. (This girl is only gonna break your heart)
With you. With you. (This girl is only gonna break your heart)

What a wicked game you play, to make me feel this way.
What a wicked thing to do, to let me dream of you.
What a wicked thing to say, you never felt this way.
What a wicked thing to do, to make me dream of you and,

I want to fall in love. (This girl is only gonna break your heart)
No, I want to fall in love. (This girl is only gonna break your heart)
With you.

The world was on fire and no one could save me but you.
It's strange what desire will make foolish people do.
I never dreamed that I'd love somebody like you.
And I never dreamed that I'd lose somebody like you no,

No, I want to fall in love. (This girl is only gonna break your heart)
No, I want to fall in love. (This girl is only gonna break your heart)
With you. (This girl is only gonna break your heart)
With you. (This girl is only gonna break your heart)
No, I... (This girl is only gonna break your heart)
(This girl is only gonna break your heart)

Nobody loves no one.
