As you may know, we like a good dark pop song to counterbalance the sunny bright pop that often consumes our lists. Chris Isaak offers a welcome version of the man at the edge. No wonder David Lynch used it effectively, but even without that you have a song that is equal parts spare and overproduced. Counterpoints that show both unease and simplicity as well as the attendant drama of even the most pedestrian love stories. At times soaring...as often quiet... no part of this song could be changed, so firm are the bricks that hold it up.
