SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. – A couple of things about Chris Isaak:

n His concerts are attended by women who will look you in the eyes long and winsomely.

n His songs are used in movies.

Regarding the latter, Isaak broke out in 1989 nationally when his song “Wicked Game” was featured in the David Lynch film “Wild at Heart.”

Ten years later, his blues track, “Baby Did a Bad, Bad Thing” was used in Stanley Kubrick’s last movie, “Eyes Wide Shut.” “Two Hearts” was played in Quentin Tarantino’s “True Romance” in 1993.

Isaak also wrote the theme song for “The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn.”

Regarding the former, here’s good news for female concertgoers: Isaak is known to offer “free physical exams” after his shows.

Critically acclaimed as a “silver-throated crooner,” Isaak was unavailable to speak with us for this story. That’s our excuse for the ribbing. We’re not jealous or anything.
