Let's take a drive through the old town
Back past the place where we met
Some things are hard to remember
Some things you'll never forget

Let's take a walk down your old street
Who lives in your house today?
Let's see if we can remember
All of the vows that we made

Kisses you gave me
The vows you made me
None of these things have changed...
Nothing's changed
Nothing's changed

Young lover's stand in the showroom
New lovers taking our place
And though you're gone I remember
And I can still see your face

Kisses you gave me
The vows you made me
None of these things have changed...
Nothing's changed
Nothing's changed

I saw him in a club in DC right as he was starting to get famous - circa 1987-88.  One of the best shows I've ever seen.

This stuff is beautiful to my ears.  This takes me back to times I don't want to remember, either.  He certainly nails feeling sorry for yourself like few other artists can. Sad git.
The delay on the guitar builds a tonal bridge across the whole song creating ebbs and flows of sonic fluidity.

What else are the lyrics to "straight up rock and roll" usually about?

 
Sex and drugs?
One of the finest voices to ever grace the world of music! We are lucky to have his music.....
Saw him live a few years ago. What an entertainer. It was awesome. He has a great touring band.

Nice music. But does he do straight up rock and roll? Every Isaak song I hear he's moaning about lost love or broken hearts or cheating women or they did a bad bad thing.  Is this the sum total of his catalogue? Maybe he can do self-therapy on his own time.

Check out his song "Please" (can't remember on which album).  He really rocks out on that one, although he still has woman problems in it.

I've long held that this is/was the best song on this disk ...

I thought the same thing! Love it all the same

That's his former guitarist, James Wilsey, who gave Chris' earlier stuff its distinctive sound.

It's a Gibson archtop—I don't know the model. Funny thing is that this album features him mostly on a Fender Strat, which is why he sounds so much like Knopfler, who played a Strat almost exclusively in his early years.

You're not supposed to eat it, silly!
Thanks for this. Good song. Reminds of... yes, and in exactly the right tone...

He does seem to have quite a few songs about love gone wrong but I like him anyway.

Just bought Mr. Isaak's Christmas album. Does a real good job on The Christmas Song, 'Have yourself...'

This is an 8 btw.

...brilliant...
