“Wicked Game” was a huge hit for Chris Isaak, peaking at No. 6 on the Billboard Hot 100 in March 1991. It was originally released as a single in 1989, but really took off after being featured in the 1990 film “Wild at Heart.” Its popularity was also spurred on by a sexy video that featured supermodel Helena Christensen.
