Wild thing
You make my heart sing
You make everything groovy
Wild thing

Wild thing, I think I love you
But I wanna know for sure
So come on and hold me tight
I love you

Wild thing
You make my heart sing
You make everything groovy
Wild thing

Wild thing, I think you move me
But I wanna know for sure
So come on and hold me tight
You move me

Wild thing
You make my heart sing
You make everything groovy
Wild thing

Come on, come on, wild thing
Shake it, shake it, wild thing

This was a hit 52 years ago. :shock:



Try 55 years ago.  And we're not getting old.  We're just older.

In 1966 Britain that was long hair!

CFRA AM 580 radio used to play this song all the time in the mid-60s.    Sounded edgy, even in mono.  :-)

RP plays this just to make some of us feel old, very old.  


CFRA, man. Just mentioning that makes me feel old. Big time AM top-40 station in Ottawa, Canada, until it went all talk in the late 80s. The Troggs must have sounded edgy on CFRA, even in the 60s (before I was listening to anything). Sadly, CFRA was the type of radio station many of us abandoned for FM in the 70s, eventually abandoning even FM for -- RP. 

What goes around comes around!
When I was a youngster, I heard "you make my horse sing," which made no sense to me.

From the year I was born.
And it still sounds groovy.
Finally! A fun tune. Thanks RP.

Don't you just want to caper around a campfire in the dead-heat of  a summer's night, howling these lyrics? An 8 for atavistic appeal!
I crack up every time I hear the solo...on nose flute!

I have a soft spot for Sam Kinison's cover of this.

I lived pretty near their origins in the UK and used to spend quite a bit of time with them, even bought their old group van (!), but pasty? Having had a few drinking sessions in their company, umm ... no.

The beautiful primitiveness of Rock'n Roll. Or was it the other way round?
I heard this and loved it 3,000 times as a 12 year old. 
But this is my first roll of this classic on RP. Kudos. Let's go for the daily double and spin Love Is All Around.

Absolutely the best. AM radio was wonderful during the 1960s.

So also no Iggy Pop, no Lou Reed, and no Ramones? Right?

I disagree.

:dancingbanana_2:
I can still see why this was a hit in it's day. BTW Bill, I like the Troll-Troggs link!! :dance: :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana_2:
Can't decide if this song takes me on a wonderful trip back to the 60s, or reminds me of Charlie Sheehan trying to pitch in Major League. Doesn't matter, both are good!
