Jon Voight's brother, Angelina Jolie's Uncle, successful gambler, accomplished golfer and composer Chip Taylor (James Wesley Voight) wrote "Angel of the Morning" and "Wild Thing". You don't get more polarized that that.

In 1965 The Wild Ones (Jordan Christopher (Zankoff) and the Peppermint Lounge house band:Tom Graves, Tommy Trick and Eddie Wright ) recorded Chip Taylor's (James Wesley Voight) "Wild Thing" for the album "The Arthur Sound". It was produced by the multi-talented Gerry Granahan. The producer approached Chip Taylor to write a tune specially for the group. Arthur was a NYC disco owned by Richard Burton's ex-wife Sybil.

Originally called The Troglodytes, The Troggs (Reg Presley, Pete Staples, Chris Britton and Ronnie Bond) issued "Wild Thing" when producer Larry Page requested it as a B side and still took the tune to the top of the charts in 1966. It took the band ten minutes to record the song and is on the album "From Nowhere .... The Troggs".
