How About  "Wild Thing" by the Trogs?  I don't remember the year.  Or maybe "Bad to the Bone"?

Hey Bill,


"The Troggs" were not a one-hit wonder.  They had a few big hits besides "Wild Thing" there was "Love is All Around", "With A Girl Like You" and "I Can't Control Myself" to name a few.  Not sure who you're referring to on "Bad to the Bone" but I only know it by "George Thorogood & the Destroyers" and he had a great many hits.

  Hello,


I agree; George Thorogood and the Destroyers were pretty popular; lots of guys know or sing "Bad to the Bone," at karaoke places; probably his signature song. Another one of his I like to do is a novelty song, "Get a Haircut!"

  I just remembered their signature songs, I guess.  I was pretty much into country back then anyway, so I wouldn't remember a lot of the songs.  Thanks for settin me straight.

 "Walkin' My Cat Named Dog" by Norma Tanega 


 


I loved that song so much that I named the cat I got shortly afterwards, Lorenzo Bandini Dog.  Now, there is a 3-fold reason for that, and all three of them look a bit silly in retrospect.   I was a huge fan of the Grand Prix racing, and Lorenzo Bandini was sooo cool.  In addition, we had LBJ in office, and my cat's initials were LBD.  My friends loved that.  And, then, of course, I just called him "Dog". Man, Dog was a good ol' cat.

  Hi Bill


Sometimes bands have multi hits but you remember them for one in particular.  It is like their mega hit.


That was "Wild Thing"    : )  and Bad to the Bone  and the songs were so good they have been covered by all kinds of bands till you forget who sang what first.
