“Wicked Game” is the one Chris Isaak song that everybody loves to cover. Washed Out did it a few months ago, and the bizarre pop-opera project Il Divo tried it out just last night on The Tonight Show. Below, check out a video of the enigmatic art-rock yowlers WU LYF doing a scraggly but surprisingly soulful rendition of the song at a recent London show.

This probably should be the part where we point out that Chris Isaak has had a long and distinguished career and that we should probably all figure out another Isaak song to cover. But no, “Wicked Game” is still great.
