"Baby Did a Bad Bad Thing" is a song by American rock and roll artist Chris Isaak, released as the first track to the 1995 album Forever Blue. The song was later featured in the 1999 Stanley Kubrick film Eyes Wide Shut, starring Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman. It peaked at #9 in September 1999 on the Australian ARIA Singles Chart, although it was only #27 when it was originally released in 1996.[1] The soundtrack for the film featured a remixed version of the song. The song was also used at the beginning of the Cold Case episode "Dog Day Afternoons", as well as the end of the CSI: Miami episode "Curse Of The Coffin". It was also used in the trailer for the film Sorority Row.

Music video[edit]

The music video of the song was directed by Herb Ritts. It features French model Laetitia Casta videotaped in a motel room gyrating sexually being watched by Isaak. Casta was dressed in lingerie and wore a black wig throughout the video. In July 1999, VH1 aired two versions of the music video, the censored version was played before 9 p.m. and the uncensored version was played after 9 p.m. The video was initially regarded as too steamy by the network. The video was ranked #28 on VH1's 50 Sexiest Video Moments.
