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.
