was playing a club by the Eiffel Tower.
Taking a break for half an hour.
A girl from the bar came out to talk.
"Come on" she said "Let's take a walk".

Monday was the day we met.
Tuesday I was flying.
Wednesday she was far away.
Friday caught me crying.

If I ever see that girl again
I'm gonna tell her that I love her.
If I ever see that girl again
There'll never be another.
I know..
Monday was the day we met.
Tuesday I was flying.
Flying....flying......

We talked and we talked and we layed on the bed.
And I can remember every word she said.
Never met a girl like that before.
Everyday I miss her more.

Monday was the day we met.
Tuesday I was flying.

And If I ever see that girl again
I'm gonna tell her that I love her.
If I ever see that girl again
There'll never be another.
I know..
Monday was the day we met.
Friday caught me crying.

When I find that girl again.
I know we'll be flying..
Flying....flying......

I think about you all the time.
Oh I wanna make you mine.
Just can't seem to let you go.
'Cause every day I want you more.
Flying...
I think about you all the time.
Oh you got me flyin'.

YEA!!!!    {#Music}
Brings back the memories.

IMHO this song doesn't play enough.  I'd love to see it in a few more sets. 

edit:
if you are using google chrome and your smilies look like this {#Frown} after you submit your post; you need to do a little more work.

While editing your post first insert the smillie; then click on the {#Roflol}where your smillie should be.  Edit the image properties by clicking on the tree in the icon row next to the horse shoe, or is that an omega symbol?  Change the 'https://www.radioparadise.coms' to 'scripts' and hit tab.  It's worked for me so far.

{#Cheers}  hope it works for you as well.

Edit, Edit:

{#Mrgreen}
Another way is to click the HTML button way on the right when editing your comment. Find the image you want and then again change the 'https://www.radioparadise.coms' to 'scripts' {#Mrgreen}

If it disappears completely you will need to do a bit more editing. Find the img tag. It looks like this:
<img style="border: 0px initial initial;" title="{#Stop}" src="https://img.radioparadise.com/emoji/icon_stop.gif" alt="{#Stop}" xx="0" yy="0" />
Take out the style attribut and put in border="0" and take out the height and width. Like this
<img border="0" title="{#Stop}" src="https://img.radioparadise.com/emoji/icon_stop.gif" alt="{#Stop}" xx="0" yy="0" />
And again it's worked so far for me. Good luck. {#Cheers}
Whatever you think about Chris Isaak, and I'm mildly a fan of the music, that voice is one the best of all time.

wow.  been listening for years to Chris (more Chris then Roy) and Roy and never put that together.  I know, I know, I have no explanation.

better than most Chris Isaak tunes... actually made me turn up the music from background to slightly-foreground.. 6?
I was a bit worried during the first lines, that Mr. Isaac was about to sing:
"Da doo ron ron ron, da doo ron ron"
Eventually all was well.

Yes, that is exactly how this station works.

Radio Paradise is run by two people, Bill and Rebecca Goldsmith in Paradise, California. Since they are human beings who must eat, sleep and so on, they can't be online 24/7. Accordingly, they use the same combinations of music occasionally (called "sets") to make things flow smoothly. Rest assured that this music is carefully selected, for theme, flow, tempo and so on.

Would you rather hear the same sequences of carefully selected music occasionally (for example, when I hear George Winston's Spanish Caravan I KNOW a Doors tune is coming up next), or listen to crappy commercial radio, or listen to a random shuffle with no thought put into it? I'll take Radio Paradise hands down.

 

Oops! I should read the whole thread first. You said it much better than I.

That almost proves it! Two in a row of repeated sequence.
 

Well, what would you like to hear repeated? The reason I support RP is because they "repeat" about 17 cool tunes from time to time, instead of the same six overplayed songs on commercial FM radio.
This one is growing on me. 7->8

Good God man!  Post the link. 
Totally relate to this song.  Except the place was Berlin, and I wasn't singing, but it was in a bar and the next day was fantastic.  After that...  {#Cry}
Chris is channelling Tim Buckley here.

I\'m not normally a Chris Isaak fan, but that was great.

When he first hit the scene, I really didn't like him. What was I thinking? Those looks, that voice.... Glad I came around.

Guess I'm going to be the standout thus far and say I like this song a lot. Speak of the Devil is the last Chris Isaak album I've bought and I have every one previous to it, which means I've been a fan since the late 80s I guess. I think the whole album is great and this song, too. He doesn't ever seem to get taken seriously, probably because he doesn't take himself seriously, either. But despite his tongue-in-cheek persona I've always thought he was a 'seriously' good musician. He just doesn't record any bad songs at all.
I can relate to the subject matter, but, overall, the song is rather lame in comparison to the rest of his material.

Yeah baby! I can so relate.....phone call....chemistry.....catch my drift? (P8)

Great vehicle for a great voice.
I think this is a poor song from Chris and I base this on listening to alot of his other tracks.
Dear Chris, hind-sight is 20-20 :heartkiss:
