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.
