No stars in the sky, the night seems so dark around you.
You won't say a word, and wonder why no one's found you,
Waiting for love, praying for love again........

Love's a heavy weight, give it to me don't hesitate.
Love's a heavy thing, too heavy for one heart to bring me your love.
Give me your love again, it's not your fault.
One heart can never win it takes

Two hearts, two hearts just to hold love.
Two hearts, two hearts just to hold your lo-o-o-o-o-ve.
Your lo-o-o-o-o-ve.

And if your heart should ache,
Remember me.
And if your heart should break.

Two hearts, two hearts they can mend it.
Heartache, heartaches can be ended by love, by love.

Love's a heavy weight, give to me don't hesitate.
Love's a heavy thing, too heavy for one heart to bring me your love.
Give me your love again, It's not too late.
One heart can never win, it takes two hearts.

Two hearts, two hearts just to hold love
Two hearts, two hearts just to hold your lo-o-o-o-o-ve
Your lo-o-o-o-o-ve.

This song is also on his Baja Sessions album, release a few years later. Interestingly, Baja Sessions also includes Wrong To Love You, which also appears on his Heart Shaped World album. There's nothing nefarious about that, but seems a little unusual to me.
King Roy is dead. Long live King Chris!
a wonderful album
Super Sweet!  Wish I was on a delicious warm beach with this beautiful singer serenading us (myself and a slinky bikini clad seductress), daydream time...

Time flies when we're having fun...  love this song...


Aha, that is were Calaxico found it's "Dance the night away" tune!

Yeah, it's a sweet song. I used to get a kick out of his TV show.

This song is soooo good for the ears and the hearts...

 
Chris Isaak a la Roy Orbison ... cool {#Cheers}

lol...but he nails it...and its sooo good to hear him sing after listening to cold play *shudder*

After I die I want to be reincarnated with Chris's voice.  He might be showing off his tonsil tickling with this song, but I still love it.
Agree with many of the others, definitely a Roy Orbison of today in style and talent; and this from a contemporary of Saint Roy.

Sounds like it does:

Met him in Vancouver when he was filming his TV show ... super relaxed and quite funny guy ... Him and his drummer were at a fish market picking up Crab Cakes for a party ... it was really nice to just hang out waiting for our numbers to be called and shoot the shite ...

His music is pretty relaxing - hitting those high notes freaks me out - but I think hes awesome
Chris Isaak ... you da man!
This guys voice is so nice. Very Roy Orbison. {#Bounce}


i wonder if it hurts as the pliers tighten their grip?
Whatever. It may be camp, it may be serious, it may be overly sweet, it may need multiple labels. It's great. I love this voice and the talent of these musicians.
He had a TV show, what happened to his TV show?
Wow, 1993...can it be that long ago that I first heard this? Such a sense of innocence in this music. He's so good.
big O for this guy
I just know that if I were either gay or female, I'd be VERY attracted to him. He is quite the handsome one... Plus I love his voice -- reminds me a lot of Roy Orbison.

Stingray. Tone it down a little. I mean, big fonts, big color. WTF

Aah -- no. He seems sweet, but be careful. I've got the albums; I watched the TV show (and miss it,), I've been to the concerts and enjoyed them all. But, there is something unsettling about this guy. A little self-centered? bad? Not sure. Not good about the guitarist, though. Sorry for that

Roy was pretty big. And he had a cool horse. And I guess Dale might have thought he looked pretty good. And he had that restaurant thing going for him. So,that's not so bad. Elvis did have that peanut butter sandwhich thing going. But, I don't remember a chain of Elvis restaurants. Anyway, Roy was pretty big.
LOL!! ROY...Rogers!! I get it... LOL!!!

"Super Magic 2000", of the Speak of the Devil album, has a few gunshots at the beginning... I suppose if you were just listening, you might not notice that a new track has started. Hope that helps

Lot's of funny folks in "U, S and A" from "half-as-funny" Germany, Stingray

Again, chills. Wow.
True Romance was such a great movie...the use of this song at the end was sort of brilliant

I would cheat on my husband in a HEARTBEAT to be with Chris Isaak! He attended my brothers wedding in 2001 (friend of the family, he's a big boxing fan and my s-i-l is from a boxing family in SF) and I just about couldn't read my Bible passage I was so worked up. Sadly, that's as close an opportunity as I'll ever get.... sigh....

Ok, there's something truly ironic (take notes, Ms. Morissette) about acknowledging you'd cheat and reading a bible passage in the same post. ;-) Not that I'm in a glass house throwing stones, I just think it's funny. By the way, who grabbed him by the nuts there at the end? BGGA, was that you?!? Excellent tune from Chris "I wanna be Roy" Isaak-son.

This is great stuff. He should have gotten more mainstream play. Also a GREAT live performer.

Chris Issak can have my heart anyday :heartkiss: oh, and I like his crooner style too!
San Francisco Days is my favorite album by Chris Isaak. This song possibly my favorite song in that collection.

Weird how I was just wondering if I was being too liberal with my ratings, (too many 10's) and then BAM! Along comes Mr. Isaak, a natural and seldom heard 10 if ever there was one . Perfect timing RP! Gotta get more of his work.

Fits into that category : SONGSMITH. Covers ain't bad either. Credit for attempting those notes...and then HITTING them, A 10.

There certainly is something about him. Chris Isaak, in the immortal words of Wayne's friend Garth, "makes me feel kinda funny."
The king of the falsetto chorus.
Makes me think of my wife.... good and bad ;)
:cool:
If you could sing like that, amigo, you'd never have to be IN your house. See asparklingirl below. drew wrote:

Hmmm... I think if I was going to play this in the same set as U2, I would choose Two Hearts Beat As One instead of Some Days Are Better Than Others. Edit: Sorry, I guess it wasn't in the same set. My bad.
This illustrates everything that is wrong with Chris Isaak. Every time he breaks into his patented falsetto I cringe, like nails on a chalkboard.

Love Isaak, he's just got that cowboy with a silvertone thang going. Just had a twisted idea. He does "Solitary Man" on the same CD. How about a "Solitary Man" set, Bill, with Neil's original, then Isaak's, and closing with Johnny Cash's killer version. Could be excellent! Keep up the good work!

Note to self: buy more Chris Isaak.

"Dude, he's not yodeling. He's SCROTELING." - Butt-head on Chris Isaak
There\'s a better (IMHO) version of this song in the \'Baja Sessions\' album, which by the way is my favorite Chris Isaak album. Do yourselves a favor and check it out. :wave:
Very nice. Roy Orbison obviously had an influence here. :clap: :bounce: :clap:
My husband proposed to me at a Chris Isaak show.. so I will always love this man\'s music. :D
It is a matter of timing . . . . Please let us have some energizing upbeat rock instead of whispery breathy aching voices and hearts. I am not ready for a tequila happy hour, I am trying to get some work done here! This guy\'s yodel is charming and sweet, but I am not trying to go to sleep in this time zone--lots more work to do. Now he has changed from yodeling to singing off key; do you have any singers who both stay on key and are not breathy? I have been away for awhile but came back to give RP another chance to help me get through the work day.
This man is Sex On Legs! :p
Can\'t think of another man who I would rather listen to yodel. Wait a sec... I take that back.... Bill, you\'re a genius. Midge Ure !!!
I tried the high notes and damaged myself :) But damn what a fine song this is and he\'s got so many of them

BORing. :moon:
That girly scream he does at the end creeps me out!! :eek: :eek:
I bought this album on CD (also have it on import vinyl :D ) just before I took a cross-country drive to my new home in the SF Bay area back in \'93. While other CDs went in and out of my changer, this one stayed in. Such a solid album, and for me personally, very timely.

You do have to have a sense of humor to live in this town - how many movies can you name where Fresno is used as a punchline :) (although I think Chris Isaak is actually from Stockton, about 120 north)
his voice makes me think two words: hubba hubba! :D
Just caught a Chris Isaak concert this week. very enjoyable and looks damn fine in sequins.
Holy schniekeys! Those last couple of notes must have hurt. :)
The first time I heard one of Chris\' songs on the radio I thought it was a Roy Orbison song I\'d missed. Then I heard him on one of Nicole Sandlers live spots, what a talented musician and a very funny guy too (guess you have to be when you come from Fresno)! Saw him at the Coach House in San Juan Capistrano, CA a short time later. Hard to believe, he\'s even better in concert than he is on the \"radio\". Own all his CD\'s now..... :p
he is sooooo smooth. This song just melts me
