On April 1st, 1966 The Troggs recorded 'Wild Thing' at Regent Sound Studio in London. The song went on to be a No.1 hit in the US and No.2 UK hit in June the following year. The track was recorded in one complete take. Wild Thing is still a classic today.
And of course on this day 1970 as an April fool's joke John Lennon and Yoko Ono issued a statement to the press that they were having dual sex change operations.
Oh Susanna Hoffs how I was so in love with you, and on April 1st, 1989 Eternal Flame hit #1. This song was never my favorite but you can not beat the lyrics.
