"I Go Wild" is a song by The Rolling Stones featured on their 1994 album Voodoo Lounge. Credited to Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, "I Go Wild" is largely a Jagger composition.[1]

On its creation, Jagger said in 1994, "'I Go Wild', I suppose, is the one I play (guitar) on most. I mean, I just created it on guitar with Charlie [Watts], as a groove. And we more or less had the whole song down before we took it to anyone else."[1] On the song overall, Jagger said, " I like that song. I really got into the lyrics on that one. One of the wordy ones."

A straight forward rock song, "I Go Wild"'s lyrics tell of the singer's relationship with an unnamed "femme fatale";

"I Go Wild" was recorded between the months of July and August and November and December 1993 at Sandymount Studios, Ireland and A&M Recording Studios, Los Angeles.[1] With Jagger on lead vocals, Richards and Ron Wood accompany him on electric guitars. Charlie Watts performs drums while Darryl Jones performs bass. Chuck Leavell performs the song's organ while Phil Jones incorporate percussion. Jagger, Richards, Bernard Fowler, and Ivan Neville perform backing vocals.[2]

"I Go Wild" was released as the fourth single from Voodoo Lounge on July 3, 1995. It reached number 29 on the UK singles chart. A video was shot at Ex-templo de San Lázaro in Mexico City right before the Stones' fourteen stadium tour of South America. The song performed throughout the 1994-1995 Voodoo Lounge Tour,[1] but has yet to be included on any live albums or compilations; however, a live version was one of the b-sides to the song's maxi-single.
