2017 “Wildwood Days” Song Version

If you noticed this summer there was a new version of Bobby Rydell’s famous hit song, “Wildwood Days” playing on commercials and some parts of the Boardwalk. We wanted to take a quick little poll and see how you like the new version and if you think we should keep it or drop it.

In the history of Bobby Rydell’s “Wildwood Days” there have only been three different versions of the song played. The original of course is Rydell with the second being a variation of the song with the words “oh those Wildwood days” being changed for “Love those Wildwood days.”

In this video below you will hear first the “Love those Wildwood days” version followed by the 2017 “Wildwood Days” version.

We have a poll below here that we want you to take AFTER you are done listening to the 2017 version. It starts at :31.

    NO NO NO! Why would you even consider changing a song that is part of Wildwoods history!! The original song should stay, you can’t improve on perfection.

    The 2017 version is OK, but keep the earlier one. It is much better. Why would you want to change it?

    I don’t like the new version at all. I grew up with the original song by Robby Rydell, and would like that version to be the one that is played on the boardwalk.

    Some things should never be changed. The original version is the best and the only one that should be played.
    You honored Bobby Rydell with a wall murial for his song. So why would you want someone else’s version playing on the Boardwalk.

    Why would you ever want to change Robby Rydell’s Wildwood Days on the boardwalk??? It embodies the entire spirit of the Wildwoods! The new version is okay as far as music goes, but it is not right for the Wildwoods. While the Dovells first released the song, Rydell’s version is the one everyone associates with the Wildwoods. Everytime I hear it played anywhere, it brings me right back to my happy place! Don’t fix what ain’t broke!
