”Wild in the Streets” was the movie, Christopher Jones played the lead role of Max Frost. This song was made in-studio written by Barry Mann and produced by Mike Curb and released as a single by Max Frost & the Troopers. It spent 12 weeks on Billboard’s Top 100 in the Fall of 1968, peaking at #22. Less than 2 minutes long, but between the “revolutionary” theme and the hard hitting rock sound, it became a real favorite of mine. For more on the movie:
