When the single "Wicked Game," from his third album Heart Shaped World, was featured in David Lynch's 1990 movie Wild at Heart, it reached the Top Ten on the Billboard charts. Another significant hit, "Somebody's Crying," from 1995's Forever Blue, resulted in both the single and album being nominated for Grammy Awards. He released a greatest hits album (Best of Chris Isaak) in 2006. Isaak has also appeared in several hit feature films, including The Silence of the Lambs and That Thing You Do.
