Song of the day: The Troggs- Wild Thing


Chip Taylor is the songwriter who wrote the song Wild Thing. This song first went to a group called The Wild Ones, who made a single out of it in 1965. This was no big success, but the cover version which was recorded in 1966 was. This version was made by The Troggs, who took it to number one in the US and number two in the UK. It was released on two different labels, but Billboard put those two record sales together and that made it the only single to chart number one for two labels! And today we enjoy the cover… enjoy
