Wild Thing by Chip Taylor (and The Troggs)

May 20, 2019

Some songs are lucky. They get written and played once by the right artist and find their place in history as a benchmark of whatever genre said song encapsulates. And some songs are very lucky. They are written in a burst of sudden inspiration, recorded and released with the utmost expectations, bomb and get thrown out into a dusty bin full of hopeless castaways and bitter also-rans, only to be plucked out of obscurity on a whim, re-recorded by a group of young ramshackled musicians that have it stumble it's way into history as a benchmark of whatever genre said song encapsulates. Guess which path, 'Wild Thing' took.
