"Wild" Songs

Here's an interesting collection of songs united only by the fact that their titles contain the word "Wild." No, this is not an "Opposites" post, so don't be expecting a "Tame" songs collection to follow. As usual (for me), a variety of genres are represented here including indie rock (aka hipster music), metal, oldies, country, rap, and just plain rock. Enjoy!  ~  JH
