La historia (A short history)

Wild Thing fue escrita por Chip Taylor y grabada originalmente por Jordan Christopher & The Wild Ones; pero no sería hasta su grabación por The Troggs que se convertiría en un éxito que no ha dejado de rodar.Wild Thing was written by the songwritter Chip Taylor and originally recorded by Jordan Christopher & The Wild Ones; but was with the cover made by The Troggs it became a real success that has grown time by time.
When Chip Taylor originally demoed this basic three-chord song in 1965, he didn't take it too seriously. He later told Rolling Stone magazine: "I was on the floor laughing when I was through." Taylor added in Mojo magazine September 2008: "'Wild Thing' came out in a matter of minutes. The pauses and the hesitations are a result of not knowing what I was going to do next." (thanks, Edward Pearce - Ashford, Kent, England, for above 4)
