I first had the idea of using the other song by Tone Loc, but I went punk with the designs and I just wasn’t feeling it. So I went back to The Troggs because the song feels more and gives more than Tone Loc’s song.(Tone Loc’s is FUN, though, I do love it!)
I listened to The Troggs version a few times before I came up with a hippy girl look, flopping around as if she was at Woodstock. Don’t have a clue why, I just went with it!
