Song of the Day: The Troggs, “Love Is All Around”

From the town of Andover in southern England, The Troggs started as The Troglodytes, appropriate for a band that did “caveman rock.” Their biggest hit in the world was “Wild Thing,” from 1966, which reached #2 in the UK, #5 in Sweden and The Netherlands, and #1 in the US, Canada, Austalia, and New Zealand. They hada second big in in the UK with their follow-up record, “With A Girl Like You,” which reached the top of the charts in the UK but only #29 in the US and #11 in Canada. 1967’s “Love Is All Around” was their second and final Top 10 hit in the US, reaching #7, and Canada, reaching #3.

  1. My favorite garage band… With A Girl Like You was the b side to the reissued single of Wild Thing and I ended up liking it better. This one is a good one also.
