LAMONT’S MUSIC NOTES-NOV 26, 2019.. ON THIS DAY IN 1990 THE BAY AREA’S CHRIS ISAAK RELEASED A KILLER SONG ‘WICKED GAME.’ TO HEAR ISAAK TELL IT, THE SONG IS ABOUT “OBSESSIVE LOVE.” HE SAID IT WAS INSPIRED BY A LATE NIGHT EVENT: “This one I wrote really late at night and it was written in a short time, because I remember that a girl had called me and said, ‘I want to come over and talk to you,’ and ‘talk’ was a euphemism. And she said, ‘I want to come over and talk to you until you’re no longer able to stand up.’ And I said, ‘Okay, you’re coming over.’ And as soon as I hung up I thought, ‘Oh, my God. I know she’s gonna be trouble. She’s always been trouble. She’s a wildcat. And here I am, I’m going to get killed, but I’m doing this.’ And I wrote ‘Wicked Game’: ‘world’s on fire and no one can save me but you.’ It’s like you start thinking about it, and by the time she came over to the house, I had the song written. And I think she was probably upset because I was more excited by the song. (Laughing) I was like, ‘Yes, you’re gorgeous, baby. But listen to this song!'”
