Wendy Sadd

Song written by Ricky and Marty Wilde. Ninth track of the album Select.

Marty about Wendy Sadd

This was based on the kind of police brutality that you meet in certain sections of America. I saw the song, like I see most of the others, as a mini film with a very sad dejected girl falling into the hands of a very powerful authority. The actual name "Wendy Sadd" comes from Top of the Pops, where there used to be a girl - or she may still work there for all I know - called Wendy Sadd. When Ricky came home and said he had met a girl by that name, I said that is an incredible name and should be a title of a song. So, Wendy Sadd is actually a real name.
