Trivia

Although it is often interpreted as a ballad about unrequited love, Isaak himself has said that the song was inspired by a telephone call from a girl seeking to arrange a casual sexual liaison and is about "what happens when you have a strong attraction to people that aren't necessarily good for you".

Quotes

[opening lines]
Chris Isaak: [singing] The world was on fire and no-one could save me but you. / It's strange what desire will make foolish people do. / I'd never dreamed that I'd meet somebody like you. / And I'd never dreamed that I'd lose somebody like you

Great Song, Great Video
4 August 2018 | by eatcroweplsSee all my reviews

This is one of my favorite songs ever and this was a really good music video. I'm surprised how controversial it was at the time as it is not really all that sexy or revealing.
