Actually It’s August, for one more day

Jim gives us the prompt of Cruel/Evil/Horrible/Monster/Wicked and my first thought was “Wicked Game” by Chris Isaak. We saw him perform it live and I recorded it but sadly my camera died in the middle of the song so I didn’t get the whole thing.

Wicked Game

 
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’d lose somebody like you
No, I don’t wanna fall in love (this world is only gonna break your heart)
No, I don’t wanna fall in love (this world is only gonna break your heart)
With you
With you (this world 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 don’t wanna fall in love (this world is only gonna break your heart)
No, I don’t wanna fall in love (this world 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, I don’t wanna fall in love (this world is only gonna break your heart)
No, I don’t wanna fall in love (this world is only gonna break your heart)
With you (this world is only gonna break your heart)
With you (this world is only gonna break your heart)
No, I (this world is only gonna break your heart)
(This world is only gonna break your heart)
Nobody loves no one

But I’ve also heard Chris Daughtry’s version and I think it is quite good too.

What do you think? Happy Sunday all.

    I really like this song Janet and haven’t heard it for ages (I was singing along to the chorus!) – I have a little bit of a soft spot for Chris Isaak – I always associate him with Kylie Minogue in my head (same era I think) 🙂

  4. Oh, I am so sorry that your camera died partway through the song. What a drag.

    What Jim said, but that’s okay: some songs you just can’t hear enough. Sucks about your camera dying…
