If you checked out the "Louie Louie" link I sent earlier this week, you will see there is tons of "Louie" information that Eric Proedehl has gleaned over the decades. I did extensive chart research for his film project. The SONG charted for many years in a row locally. From mid-63 thru 1966, I chronicled its local chartings. Certainly, 1963 and 1964 had many and 1966 also had a resurgence, but in '65, it became a biggie top 10 on KOMA in OKC (Larry, remember?) and in So-Cal also! Oddly, 1967 did not hold it, but I give the option that 1967 DID give us the VERY similar hit "Beg, Borrow and Steal" by the Ohio Express, so the Louie is always in transition, it would seem. What a true garage rock gem for the ages. Maybe it should be the first SONG entered into the RNR Hall of Fame??
Of course, what I found interesting was that was the time I was a pre-puberty kid and that was the only AM radio station we could receive,so that station was my only source of music back then.
That paragraph brought a flood of memories back to me.
Just had to share a nostalgic moment.
