Favorite "Wild" Songs #1 - "Wild"

It's time to put all this wildness behind us. @FourWalls started a music series of her favorite songs with "wild" in the title, and I jumped in. I am at #1 in this particular countdown: "Wild" by Poe. Poe based her second album, 2000's Haunted, around tapes of her late filmmaker father, Tad Danielewski, that she had come across, all the while making the record a companion piece to her brother's (Mark Z. Danielewski) 2000 novel, The House of Leaves (which I highly recommend.) Sitting in the middle of Haunted, "Wild," at nine minutes, is that album's epic tour de force. It was released as a single, yet failed to chart. I've said it before, however: Not all hits are great songs, and not all great songs are hits. Let me put it this way: it's very rare that my iPod leaves shuffle mode. But when it does, there's a good chance it's to listen to this one. (Info verified by Wikipedia)

I like the whole album, but I think this is the best song on there.

As a work of art it's pretty good but as a song I can see why it did not chart. I'm surprised that this one wasn't even on your list.

It didn't make the cut. I just don't listen to it as much.

@teamfreak16 I understand! These are your favorite top ten wild songs and not mine. It is really a matter of taste.

It is very true that not all great songs, are hits and the other way around. Excellent point.

It's the best song on the album, but a couple others had more hit potential.

@teamfreak16 It's crazy what exactly they look for when finding songs for radio hits

Poe is a good singer. Not exactly single material.

No, they would have had to edit at least five minutes off of it for it to have a chance.

It was a candidate, but failed to make the cut.
