Sunday Silly Song 45 – X, Lonesome Romeos ‎– Wild Thing (12″)

As featured on the soundtrack of the film “Major League” this was a re-release of X single release from 1984 but got a ’89 release on the back of the film. Suitably raw sounding, overdriven guitar with vocals by Exene Cervenka, a splendid cover with plenty of opportunity to chant the chorus until you fall over

Lonesome Romeos were a country rock trio of Philip Kennard (vocals – guitar), Robert Parlee (piano), Ron John (guitars – keyboards) “Oh You Angel” is Springsteen-like, strumming acoustics. Boogie Woogie on the track “US Male” -the song on the closing credits and an Elvis cover it appears. Smell that testosterone!!

“Wild Thing” appears on another SSS , this time by Oliver Reed and The Troggs from 1992. Over here;
