5 on Friday - Set 26

Travis at Trav's Thoughts invites everyone to lay down a short set of music that takes their fancies for his 5 on Friday meme.

Maybe it was hanging with my high school pals last weekend, but I'm feeling rather wild this week.

1 - Wild World - Cat Stevens

But if you want to leave
Take good care
Hope you make a lot of
Nice friends out there

But just remember
There's a lot of bad
And beware

Oh, baby, baby it's a wild world
It's hard to get by just upon a smile
Oh, baby, baby it's a wild world
I'll always remember you
Like a child, girl

- Cat Stevens

2 - Wild, Wild Life - Talking Heads

Like sitting on pins and needles
Things fall apart
It's scientific

Sleeping on the interstate
Getting wild, wild life
Checking in
Checking out
I got a wild, wild life

Spending all of my money and time
Done too much wild, wild life
We wanna go where we go
Where we go
I doing wild, wild life

I know it, that's how we start
Got some wild, wild life
Paint a picture of me in the daylight
And it's a wild, wild life

- David Byrne

3 - Real Wild Child - Iggy Pop

Gonna meet all my friends
Gonna have ourselves a ball
Gonna tell my friends
Gonna tell them all
That I'm a wild one
Ooo yeah, I'm a wild one

Gotta break it loose
Gonna keep 'em movin' wild
Gonna keep a-swingin' baby
I'm a real wild child

- Greenan / O'Keefe / Owens

4 - Wild Thing - The Troggs

Wild thing
You make my heart sing
You make everything groovy
Wild thing

Wild thing
I think I love you
But I wanna know for sure
Come on, hold me tight
I love you

- Chip Taylor

5 - Born to Be Wild - Steppenwolf

Yeah darlin', go make it happen
Take the world in a love embrace
Fire all of your guns at once
And explode into space

Like a true nature's child
We were born, born to be wild
We can climb so high
I never want to die

Born to be wild

- Mars Bonfire
