THE TROGGS – Immortal Classic ‘WILD THING’ Topped US Singles Chart This Day 55 Years Ago

Top singles from the past…

30 July 2021

Band: THE TROGGS (Andover, Hampshire, England)
Active: 1964–present

Written: by American singer/songwriter Chip Taylor and
originally recorded, without success, by US band The Wild Ones.

Score: #1 in the USA on 30 July 1966 – 55 years ago today

Note: The single was available in the USA on two competing labels
Atco Records‘ and ‘Fontana Records‘. Both pressings were taken from
the identical master recording therefore Billboard combined the sales
for both releases, making it the only single to simultaneously reach
number one for two companies. Unbelievable!

Go wild, folks…
