Not Friday On My Mind 6: Wild Thing

I’ve mentioned before that for a short while the Troggs were my favourite band. (We’re all young once.)

This song leans almost entirely to their raunchy side except for the breathiness of the, “Wild Thing, I think I love you/Come on, hold me tight/You move me,” lines and the ocarina solo.

The clip once more puts the lie to the story that until videos came along there were no promotional films for singles. Note the Troggs uniform, stripy jackets and trousers.

Reg Presley would also give David Gray a close run in the strange-movement-of-the-head stakes.
