Danielle Parente: Wicked Game

Cover of ‘Wicked Game‘ by Chris Isaak. One of the most iconic and beautifully executed songs of the 90s. Brilliant and universal lyrics, depicting the feeling of not wanting to fall in love because you know it will tear you apart, but diving in regardless knowing full well you will drown. An incredibly romantic and quite torturous notion. Inspired by Chris Isaak’s mellow tone, sexy slide guitar, and maybe one of the most classically beautiful and provocative music videos of all time. This is a take from a female perspective performed with rich textures and harmonies with an ambient remix production by Blaq Smurph, giving the song a form of its own, rather then trying to recreate the original which would be utterly impossible. This version can exist in a night club or maybe even during the daytime on the beach but still maintain that ethereal sexiness that the original possessed.

Danielle Parente: Wicked Game Lyrics:
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 world is only gonna break your heart)
No, I don’t want to 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 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)
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 world is only gonna break your heart)
No, I want to 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.
