“Wild Thing” is truly an iconic song.

In June, 1966, I was in England, where "Wild Thing," "Sunny Afternoon" by the Kinks and "Bus Stop" by the Hollies ruled the airwaves.

Summer 1966 was a great time for Top 40. Hanky Panky I think was another (without looking them up) Also seem to remember alot of One Hit Wonders from then. Great songs and radio, even if our transistors sucked by modern standards!

Did the "Peppermint Twist" make the cut? No room for Yanks? /sarc.

It’s interesting, both Sunny Afternoon and of course the Beatles’ Taxman both lamented excessive taxation.

What happened to the days when popular performers recognized this?
