Hey Hey Hey, It's International Louie Louie Day!

Look-out, I gotta shout, on account of today being one of my all-time fave holidays, International Louie Louie Day baby!...praise be to the late Richard Berry fer bestowin' upon us the hi-potent of lament that is Louie Louie...since this is my third time round celebratin' this terrific tune, let's pound-down with three samples of this wild sound...

First off, let's get a bit dirty with the rad Pacific Northwestern sound of the Nomads, a party pleaser of the craziest caliber...

...& to take this baby international, let's skip over to Japan and flip to Jackey Yoshikawa & his Blue Comets...another real-gone burner with sleazy sax and the beat to keep!

...and in the mood of keepin' things tropical let's take a trip with the Beach Boys' beautiful doo-bop version, a not so subtle attempt to re-create the original Berry & the Pharaohs style, like wild!

Fer more on the proper party etiquette of today's lunacy go dig

...and if ya feel like hangin' around, go get down to last year's ILLD post, baby and be sure to dig the dah-dah-dah, da-dah all day!
