And I wrote the song between the time I got off the phone and the person came over to visit. It was just about what happens when you have a strong attraction to people that aren't necessarily good for you. I think it hit a nerve because I think a lot of us have a strong attraction to people that aren't necessarily good for us.
What was the inpsiration for the "Wicked Game" video? I was always very interested in the video process. Actually, Warner Brothers had wanted to hire me to direct videos for other artists because I always came in with a lot of ideas. And I came into this one, and they said okay, well, what's our idea, our concept on it? The concept on this video is very simple: It's not like there's a lot of tricks and storyline in this.
But I felt really comfortable that Herb [Ritts] could take something simple like that and make it beautiful. The on-camera chemistry with supermodel Helena Christensen seemed very convincing to people who saw the "Wicked Game" video Helena is beautiful… she was, of course, beautiful when we saw her.
But I thought she was really fantastic. She's a great actress. She pretended to like me. I mean, we didn't know each other, and I always feel like I have to explain to people: She gave it to him as a year-old on their first date and said: My paternal grandmother, Helen, had a very heavy German accent.

I had a crush on singer Connie Francis when I was I listened to her in my room with the lights off — it felt like she was singing to me and meant it. She had such emotion in her voice.

Chris Isaak: The longest relationship I've been in is with my band
I am more confident on stage than I am off it. Carole was smart and calm and I found that attractive. I ended up seeing her many years later inwhen she was sick. It was an odd moment. To help cheer her up, I had a florist in Hawaii make her a new lei every day to give her something to look forward to. It gave those visiting her something to talk about other than being sick.
She died young and left a six-year-old son behind. The longest relationship I've been in is with my band. My personal relationships have never lasted because my work was always number one.
It's not that I never thought about marriage and kids, but I was either busy writing and recording music, acting, or on the road. Kids are like sail boats: A lot of guys think that being in a rock'n'roll band means I get to meet lots of girls and date them. I never joined a band to meet girls, I could have met them away from this.
I am totally focused on my career.
