With a simple heavy guitar riff and flirtatious lyrics, the song would cement music’s garage and punk rock standard.  Maybe you know their other big hit, “Love Is All Around”?  (More recently heard in the movie Love, Actually).  The Troggs influenced the likes of Iggy Pop, the Ramones, and later bands like R.E.M. and Spiritualized.  This week’s throwback is the tropical and wavy “I’ll Buy You An Island” (1975). Exactly my kind of romance.
