So is Chris Isaak any use apart from that classic?
but Giant Drag's version is way better. So the answer is no and I think anybody that's seen Chris' old Showtime tv show will attest to that.
Sure it's pretty good but it's hardly 'dreamy mournful guitar/guy who sounds like Roy Orbison' good.
but I have to say, the original is incredible. I think that cover (followed by The Royal We version and David Lynch's Wild At Heart) made me realise it, having said that.
The Trentemøller remix is pretty alright too: http://berri.dk/music/ChrisIssak-WickedGame%20Trentemoller%20Remix.mp3
I have no idea about Chris Isaak's other stuff. To be honest, if I wrote a song that good I'd give myself a long holiday, so maybe he's just chilling now
is pretty good too.
That's his best song though. I've got a few of his albums, but it's well worth giving the "best of" a go. Great voice, and James Calvin Wilsey's guitar playing is wonderful.
...great mix of Chris being both all growly and flasetto. Even made Eyes Wide Shut look good in the trailer.
reminds me of my mum.
in Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me
Although I was recently ridiculed for putting it on a cd for a car journey. My friends obviously suck.
