Chris Isaak - Blue Hotel & Wicked Game

Born 26 June 1956 in Stockton, California,Chris Isaak's music reflects the flavour of music at the time of his birth. He signed a record deal in 1984 for his album Silvertone. If not in 1987, with his international debut Blue Hotel, it was surely three years later, in 1990, when millions of hearts melted: Chris Isaak released his track 'Wicked Game', the video for which largely contributed to his popularity: his record company hired Helena Christensen, supermodel at the time. The 'love story' that unfolded on screen would become somewhat of a legend: apparently Chris fell in love with Helena, only to be re-buffed by her for lack of food and the chilling winds as the recording was made.

Lyrics:

Blue Hotel, on a lonely highway,
Blue Hotel, life don't work out my way.

Blue Hotel, on a lonely highway,
Blue Hotel, life don't work out my way.
I wait alone each lonely night.
Blue Hotel... Blue Hotel...

Blue Hotel, every room is lonely,
Blue Hotel, I was waiting only.
The night is like her lonely dream.
Blue Hotel... Blue Hotel...

Blue Hotel, on a lonely highway,
Blue Hotel, life don't work out my way.
I wait alone each lonely night.
Blue Hotel... Blue Hotel...

Lyrics:

The world was on fire
No one could save me but you
Strange what desire will make foolish people do
I never dreamed that I'd meet somebody like you
And I never dreamed that I'd lose somebody like you

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

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 don't wanna fall in love
This love is only gonna break your heart
And I don't want to fall in love
This love is only gonna break your heart

World was on fire
No one could save me but you
Strange what desire will make foolish people do
I never dreamed that I'd love somebody like you
I never dreamed that I'd lose somebody like you

No I don't wanna fall in love
This love is only gonna break your heart
No I don't wanna fall in love
This love is only gonna break your heart
With you, With you

Nobody loves no one
