Issak is best known for his song “Wicked Game,” released on his 1989 album “Heart Shaped World.”  An instrumental version of the song was later featured in the 1990 film “Wild at Heart.”  The single became a top ten hit in February 1991.  The music video was a big hit.  It was shot in black and white and starred Issak along with Danish supermodel Helena Christensen.  Remember this?
