“Wild thing” was # 1 this week in The Billboard Top 100.   It is such a simple song but Rolling Stone magazine ranked it # 257 in the Top 500 songs of rock.    

It became the first million seller for The Troggs, an English band that was a bit ahead of its time.     The lead singer was Reg Presley, one of 2 guys named Presley who put a song on the # 1 spot!
