MUSIC VIDEO

"Wicked Game" by Chris Isaak - 

Chris Isaak hosted a brilliant talk show on The Biography Channel in 2009 where he did the best musician interviews we've ever seen. He got Cat Stevens to explain how he came up with "Peace Train," found out what's really going on in "25 Or 6 To 4" and got Stevie Nicks to talk about her time in Veterans' hospitals. He has a talent for drawing out the stories in his subjects, and we were thrilled to get some time to focus on his eclectic and wildly successful career.
 
Aside from his exceptional broadcast journalism skills, Isaak is a Roots Rock star who recently tracked the Beyond the Sun album and filled it with early rock & roll classics. He's a huge fan of the music, humbled by the presence of Phil Everly and the memory of Carl Perkins.
 
Isaak's big hit came in 1989 with "Wicked Game," and his songs have also been featured in creepy David Lynch projects, as well as the equally creepy Stanley Kubrick film, Eyes Wide Shut. The video for "Wicked Game" was even directed by Lynch.
 
In conversation, you realize why his talk show chats went so well: he's relaxed, funny, and gets genuinely excited when he's talking about music. A regular on various "Sexiest Alive" lists, he refuses to believe the hype, even when confronted in a grocery store at 4 a.m. It's impossible not to like this guy.

Every station that has ever done a sexiest video list of all time, seems to have him on their.  So someone not named me must love him or the female model in the video anyway.
