"Wicked Game" Single by Chris Isaak from the album Heart Shaped World B-side "Wicked Game" (Instrumental) Released 1989 Format CD single, CD maxi, 7" single, 12" maxi Genre Rockabilly Length 4:46 (album version) 4:06 (edit) Label Warner Brothers Writer(s) Chris Isaak Producer Erik Jacobsen Chris Isaak singles chronology "Don't Make Me Dream About You" (1989) "Wicked Game" (1989) "Blue Hotel" (re-release) (1991) "Wicked Game" is a 1989 song by Chris Isaak from his third studio album Heart Shaped World. It is written in the mode of B Dorian. Despite being released as a single in 1989, it did not become a hit until it was later featured in the David Lynch film Wild at Heart. Lee Chesnut, an Atlanta radio station music director who was obsessed with David Lynch films, began playing the song and it quickly became a nationwide top ten hit in January 1991, reaching #6 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, making it the only hit song of his career in the U.S. James Calvin Wilsey played the distinctive lead guitar solo on the song. Through several years, many different versions and arrangements of the song were made before the final version was released. Both the bassline and drums (except the cymbals) were sampled from previous recordings of the song and then looped.[1] Contents 1 Chris Isaak version 1.1 Music videos 1.2 Uses in popular culture 1.3 Track listings 1.4 Charts 1.4.1 Peak positions 1.4.2 End of year charts 1.4.3 Certifications 2 Cover versions 2.1 HIM cover 2.1.1 Track listings 2.2 Other versions 3 References Chris Isaak version Music videos The music video of the song was directed by Herb Ritts, shot in Hawaii and featured top model Helena Christensen rolling and frolicking on the beach with Isaak.

With "Wicked Game" on their EP and first album, HIM gained fame in their native Finland. HIM frontman Ville Valo had this to say about "Wicked Game": "I went to Pasila's library and borrowed the soundtrack-vinyl of Wild At Heart and recorded it on tape. So with Linde we tried to 'learn' the song from the tape. It was kind of funny, that we learnt the song a bit wrong. We did not hear the guitar parts well enough from that 'bad quality' tape. We also heard the lyrics wrong, and when the song was later recorded to our first EP, there were a few funny mistakes in the lyrics."
