"LOUIE LOUIE" Geschichtsstunde!

Richard Berry hat es komponiert und im April 1957 das erste Mal als B-Seite veröffentlicht, The Kingsmen haben es populär gemacht und Iggy & The Stooges haben es erstmals grandios zerschreddert. Der Song "Louie Louie" ist nach "Yesterday" der am zweithäufigsten gecoverte der Musikgeschichte. Um dieses Lied ist ein nahezu religiöser Kult fanatischer Fans entstanden, die jede der inzwischen über 1500 Versionen besitzen wollen. Der Komponist des Songs lebte später von Sozialhilfe, das FBI ermittelte und führte Akten über das Lied und inzwischen spielt es jede Garagenband, die etwas auf sich hält.
Es ist Zeit für den Lichtspielklub, Tribut zu zollen!
Und das geht so:

"LOUIE LOUIE" von Klassik, Rock'n'Roll, Soul, Rocksteady, Marschmusik, HipHop, Punk, Hardcore, Electro bis Garage. Von Motörhead, Black Flag, Fat Boys, The Clash, Jon the Postman, Billy Childish, Grateful Dead, Iggy Pop, Maureen Tucker, Frank Zappa, The Kingsmen, R.E.M., Bad Religion, Otis Redding, The Doors, Kolossale Jugend, Ike & Tna Turner, The Sonics und jede Menge mehr.

Ein Mikro, eine alte Gitarre plus Verstärker und Verzerrer für beides und jeder kann "LOUIE LOUIE" damit auf schönste oder schrecklichste Weise interpretieren. Ob mit oder ohne Talent: "Be our star!"

History repeating

05-05-2005: Another new 'Louie Louie' world record!
The first time in history, to my knowledge, that an instrumental song gets banned for its lyrics! Although the decision in the meantime has been revoked (apparently they were startled by the big attention it attracted) this idiocy may not pass by unnoticed.

Bill Clinton plays Louie Louie
During his farewell tour at the end of 2000, Bill Clinton visited the Dover High School and Regional Vocational Center at Dover, New Hampshire. Members of the school marching band talked him into playing his saxophone with them before he left. They performed one song, and that song was "LOUIE LOUIE".
Although this picture was taken there it obviously is no proof, but... the event has been caught on video. But where to find it? Someone somewhere in or around Dover, New Hampshire must have had his VCR on record? Please...?
