Nathaniel's up to some more of his wicked games on this Fender Custom Shop Brawler. What baritone guitar first made you fall in love? Is it still your favorite? Let us know in the comments.
More about the song:
Although it is often interpreted as a ballad about unrequited love, Isaak has said that the song was inspired by a telephone call from a woman 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". It was written in short order following the call.
During the sessions for Isaak's third album, many different versions and arrangements of the song were made before the final version was completed. James Calvin Wilsey came up with the distinctive guitar lead. Both the bassline and drums (except the cymbals) were sampled from previous recordings of the song and then looped.
