Loved it then, still do.

What's not to love? A classic, for sure.

The youtube clip was shot at Odenplan subway station in Stockholm. I love the old granny who appears after 30 seconds - no fool pop group was going to stand in her way.

That old granny was probably younger than I am, and I know how she felt.

'It raced to the top of the charts in six weeks, finally dislodging Tommy James and the Shondells' "Hanky Panky" to hit No. 1 on July 30, 1966.' --another reason to love the song.

"Wild Thing...I want to have sex with you.
But I don't want to catch a disease!
So go on and have that test...
I looove you.

Wild Thing!
You make my brain bleed.
You make my nose bleed.
Groovy..."

Or at least that's how I once performed it with a high school friend...
