Thursday Inspiration — Wild Thing

I’m not back from vacation yet, but I did see Jim’s Thursday Inspiration post today, where the word is “wild.” All I could think of was the song “Wild Thing” by the Troggs.

“Wild Thing” was written by American songwriter Chip Taylor and popularized by the English rock band the Troggs. It was originally recorded and released by the American rock band the Wild Ones in 1965, but it did not chart. The Troggs’ single reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and number two on the UK Singles Chart in 1966. Their version of “Wild Thing” was ranked at number 257 on the Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. It has also been performed by many other musicians.

It’s a simple song where a guy has fallen hard for a girl, a “wild thing,” and he’s trying to know for sure it what he’s feeling for her is the real thing.

Wild thing, you make my heart sing
You make everything groovy, wild thing
Wild thing, I think I love you
But I wanna know for sure
Come on and hold me tight
I love you

Wild thing, you make my heart sing
You make everything groovy, wild thing
Wild thing, I think you move me
But I wanna know for sure
Come on and hold me tight
You move me

Wild thing, you make my heart sing
You make everything groovy, wild thing
Wild thing, you make my heart sing
You make everything groovy, wild thing
Wild thing, you make my heart sing
You make everything groovy, wild thing
