Interesting, the instrumental from Wild at Heart is tuned up a bit from the Wicked Game video. I think the latter is A440. Maybe the instrumental is A448. Anybody professional ears out there that can help?

I've always loved Wicked Game. Haunting, intoxicating. I have always thought it was inspired by Elvis' cover of Blue Moon. Obviously a fan, Isaak covered it too.


I think the 'resonance' you speak of comes from his voice, which transmits lonely sadness even as he sings about continuing relationships. This yearning surely touches and commiserates with anyone who has ever suffered from being in love or losing love.
