I never thought much of the original. Wicked game sung by Chris Isaak is quite lame. Not a bad song, just not very exciting.

The cover version by Him, however, I do really like. It clearly shows that all this song needed was a few more guitars.

Or perhaps what it really needed was a woman. Women make everything better. Well, often they do. Listen to Heather Nova’s version of the song and make up your own mind.

Pretty nice, huh?
