The original “Wicked Games” by Chris Isaak has to be one of my favorite songs, the lyrics, and the luring strums of the guitar, it’s so effortlessly beautiful and timeless. So when I heard this original mix from Parra For Cuva & Anna Naklab I fell in love all over again. I can shamelessly say that I am in love and it doesn’t matter with what or with who, so you can just keep on guessing, but the original is what plays in my head on a weekly basis, and now depending on my mood I now have two versions of this track to play over and over and over. Could things have become more perfect or fallen into place more beautifully, I don’t think so, I am in bliss, and I need a moment…
Ok I am back, wow I felt out of body there for a second, like this track was literally undressing me ever so gently, kissing me all over ever so slowly, and making love to me endlessly. I love the comparison between the two versions of this track. The original with Chris Isaak from 1989, is the male vocal that every women dreams of and every man wants to be in order to seduce their women because that is what his voice is..Seduction! And then we have Anna Naklab who gives every man satisfaction to their seduction fantasies with her sweet vocals that flow perfectly like water down a stream with the drums supporting her every curve. I think Chris and Anna need to do a track together, it would literally be a never ending orgasmic love making session of vocals, oh give me more!
Once I love something it’s hard to let it go, I guess because it takes a lot for me to love and let my guard down. For me love equals loyalty and loyalty equals love, it’s literally a separate organ in my body that a lot of people don’t have and don’t understand. ‘This world is only gonna break your heart’, that line couldn’t be more true, the games, the pain, the denial, in my opinion it’s all worth it, it makes life exciting especially if you understand what love is all about and all it’s many faces.
What a wicked game to 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 world is only gonna break your heart)
No, I want to fall in love (This world is only gonna break your heart)
Timeless lyrics, timeless vocals and a remix that’s just perfect for this breathtaking July 4th weekend, I say press play and keep dreaming of what you love no matter how ‘wicked’ it may be, enjoy!
