There is nothing we love more on a Sunday here at Jammy Toast than listening to some of our favourite tunes. Each Sunday we will post a music video from an artist or genre that we think will be enjoyable to you; our Toaster friends. We often feature music that you may not have come across before, or music that maybe you just missed the first time around. Try and listen with an open mind, you never know, you may find something you can add to your iPod. If you have any music videos you would like us to feature then drop us a line – we are always happy to listen to requests but we cannot promise to feature everyone’s favourite

As we have relaunched Jammy Toast this week, there is only one song we can feature today. It has sort of become our theme tune. “Wicked Game” is a song by Chris Isaak, released from his third studio album Heart Shaped World (1989). Despite being released as a single in 1989, it did not become a hit until it was featured in the 1990 David Lynch film Wild at Heart. Lee Chesnut, an Atlanta radio station music director who loved David Lynch films, began playing the song, and it quickly became an American top-ten hit in January 1991, reaching #6 on the Billboard Hot 100, making it the first hit song of Isaak’s career. Additionally, the song became a top 10 hit in several other nations.

There are two different music videos for the song. The most well-known was directed by Herb Ritts, shot in Hawaii at what was formerly known as Kamoamoa beach in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park on the Big Island. The newly formed black-sand beach was created from lava from Kilauea volcano flowing into the ocean about a mile away. The beach was covered by lava not long after the video was shot. The video featured supermodel Helena Christensen rolling and frolicking on the beach with Isaak. It was mostly filmed in black and white. Isaak and Christensen were shirtless through most of the video, although her nudity was concealed by clever camera angles. In the middle of the video, Christensen was seen only in her black lace underwear. The video won the MTV Video Music Awards for Best Male Video, Best Cinematography and Best Video from a Film. It was ranked #13 on VH1’s 100 Greatest Videos, #4 on VH1’s 50 Sexiest Video Moments, #73 on Rolling Stone magazine’s The 100 Top Music Videos, and #1 on Fuse’s 40 Sexiest Videos in 2010.

This video is Isaak rehearsing with his band in Australia.

  1. I can see why this is your theme tune. Great song and this is a fantastic version of it but I think if Razzi had his way it would be the version with Helena Christensen frolicking on the beach!

  2. He sings: “I don’t want to fall in love,” but really he means he does want to fall in love. Love the way they do that in song lyrics.

    I paused whilst walking home from campus through the Southern Passage woods as I could hear a child ahead of me. I went to meet them. It was a Ukrainian professor & her little boy. They’d left their own cats 1,500 miles away so were happy to see me.

  4. They all pulled together and for a long time Pooh only said “Ow!” and “Oh!” And then he said “Pop!” just as if a cork were coming out of a bottle. And Christopher Robin and Rabbit and all Rabbit’s friends-and-relations went head-over-heels backwards.

  5. I’d just woken up and finished scratching the chair so I wandered over to check what Barbara was eating for breakfast. He seemed happy with it so I went to get mine. This is life on the allotments – sleeping, scratching, eating and being with good friends. What more could I want?

  6. At this rate if Boris Johnson molestered and murdered children on national TV he’d still win. The average British voter has a double digit IQ.

  7. GT Podgkins came back eventually… we are hoping he won’t vanish quite so often after he has had his meat and two veg removed. It certainly worked for me way back in 1988!

  8. One of the UK’s most eminent environmental scientists has called the government’s failure to block a new coalmine in Cumbria “absolutely ridiculous”.

  9. Feeling the burn of this lockdown shambles lads and the vague hope that they won’t fuck it up is making it worse. Anyone got any good news?

  10. During the early days of Teddy bear manufacture it wasn’t just Steiff that used a button in the ear. Chad Valley and Merrythought were British companies. Steiff won a legal battle to claim the right to use the button exclusively making the British buttons a very rare find.
