Music Trivia -> Same Title, Different Song -> The Wild One

There's only so many unique two word or three word titles that can be invented before groups begin to recycle titles. There's nothing wrong with that of course, but it can be confusing if you're trying to sort out what song is a cover of another song. This section lists songs with identical titles, but different lyrics. To help us keep track of which songs are which, the first two lines of each unique song are listed.

"The Wild One"

The following are all the different songs that are titled "The Wild One". Check out the index for more examples of songs that have Same Title, but a Different Song.

Well I'm-a just outa school, like I'm real real cool
Gotta shake, gotta jive
Got the message that I gotta be alive, I'm a wild one
[NOTE: Iggy Pop and his band The Stooges later performed a version of this song (with slightly modified lyrics) titled as "Real Wild Child (Wild One)"]
