This was Faith Hill's debut single and her first #1 hit on the Billboard Hot Country Charts.
Written by Pat Bunch, Jaime Kyle and Will Rambeaux, this song was performed by two other Country bands before Faith Hill made it a hit. The first was Zaca Creek on their 1992 album Broken Heartland, then Evangeline for their 1993 album French Quarter Moon.
This song was also featured on Hill's 2007 compilation album, The Hits. The singer admitted it wasn't an easy trip down memory lane. She told AOL Music: "When I first realized I was going to be able to have a greatest hits this year, I didn't go back so far. I first started thinking, 'What songs can I put on here that I thought should have been hits?' [Laughs] For my way of thinking, I wouldn't allow myself to just pull off all the layers and go all the way back to the beginning. I turned in my list of songs for the album, and I get this phone call back: 'It's important that you revisit the beginning of your career, the songs that actually were the hits and that brought your fans to notice you in the first place.' And so I did that. I went back and I started with 'Wild One,' which was my first single and which I had not listened to in years."
David Bowie's "Space Oddity" tells the story of an astronaut who cuts off communication and floats into space. The BBC used it extensively in their coverage of the 1969 moon landing - an odd choice considering the lyrics.
In The Beatles "When I'm 64," Paul McCartney asks a woman if she'll still be there for him when he's 64. In 2006, he got his answer when shortly before his 64th birthday, he and Heather Mills separated.
