“Wild Thing, You Make My Heart Sing” for Marvelous Monday

 

The Troggs released Wild Thing 47 years ago today!  I was 13 years old. Recently, the lead singer, Reg Presley died this past February.  Wild Thing was a very simple song with just a few chords, but it had its impact on rock’n roll and surely was an inspiration for garage bands and punk rock bands.  Also, who can forget

Jimi Hendrix’s interpretation of Wild Thing? We’ve heard this classic song included on the soundtrack of several movies and as the background music for commercials. It continues to live on this Marvelous Monday.

  1. Note that ‘Wild Thing’ was originally written by Chip Taylor and was first recorded in 1965 by The Wild Ones.

    • Thanks, yes, knew who wrote it and that Chip Taylor is Jon Voight’s brother. I remember The Wild Ones vaguely…Jordan Christopher? He was married to Sybil Burton…Thank you so much for stopping by and commenting, really appreciate it!!!!!
