Composer Chip Taylor
One of the most obvious 'Louie Louie' soundalikes.
This is the original author's version of the song (Chip Taylor was one of The Wild Ones). Immortalised by The Troggs in 1966 of course, followed by many others among which 'Senator Bobby's' version (production Chip Taylor 1967) must certainly be named here!
Other famous Chip Taylor compositions include 'Anyway That You Want Me' and 'Angel Of The Morning', which latter has an intro that is really a slowed down version of 'Louie Louie'.
