WTF: The Troggs, 'Discussing' a Song...Wow
by Benjamin Groff
Apparently this was the inspiration for a few Spinal Tap parts of the film. Classic 60s rock band, The Troggs, are in the middle of a recording session get a little carried away 'discussing' a musical arrangement. The engineer kept the tapes rolling and what is captured is pure magic. So many classic lines here including: 'It IS a good song' 'but it fucking won't be unless we spend a little bit of fucking thought and imagination to fucking make it fucking #1' … you got to put a little bit of fucking fairy dust over the bastard' and who can forget 'I don't know what that bastard needs...Ahh, I do know it needs STRINGS!'
