There is nothing we love more here at Jammy Toast than listening to some of our favourite tunes. From time to time we will post a music video from an artist or genre that we think will be enjoyable to you; our 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

Seeing as we have relaunched Jammy Toast this week and we are starting over, 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. Who knew a story about androids could be so emotional? I am in LOVE with and fascinated by the new HBO series Raised By Wolves! Easily in my sci-fi top 10 already. Aaron Guzikowski is a genius, and this Ridley Scott kid could go places!

  2. Rolf report 14 Sept

    I’ve never clawed the furniture at home. I have scratching posts around the house. When I began visiting my campus mom, Claudia, my family sent over some scratching posts too. Unfortunately I seem to prefer her chair. They’re trying to retrain me.

  3. “What I like best -“ said Pooh, and then he had to stop and think. Because although Eating Honey WAS a very good thing to do, being with Christopher Robin was a very good thing to do, and having Piglet near was a very friendly thing to have.

  4. Barbara and I had a few words and I won so I was rolling around happily on the chair. Next minute, I was on the grass. Who designed this stupid chair? Mind you, it is very ancient. Like my human.

  5. Now the new football season has officially started, any chance the Wirral Reds could take the banners from last season out of their windows? Like leaving your Christmas tree up in March.

  6. It’s warm today! Caught in the act when about to have a roll in some dried leaves & dust, had to pretend I was on playground duty minding the little people. I’ll just wait until no one is looking. Have a lovely day friends.

  7. Liverpool inevitability going into lockdown, I know loads with symptoms now, an there’s not a place for tests for miles anywhere. Can’t cry about it though bcos Boris will call us wallowing victims again.
