I always confused the Troggs with The McCoys. I was always mixing up the Hang On Sloopy group with Wild Thing group. I don't know why. They are nothing alike. Not the songs, not the bands.
That song was an automatic "change the station" whenever it came on. Ugh.
Somehow, a 45 record ended up in my house of political impersonators singing "Wild Thing." My sister probably "borrowed" it from a friend. One side had Everett Dirkson singing "Wild Thing" and the other side had Bobby Kennedy doing it.
