Louie Louie – The Kingsmen


This week’s number 1 song was a 1963 hit for the Kingsmen, but most people don’t realize it is actually a cover of a song written and recorded in 1955 by Richard Berry. It wasn’t a completely original song by Berry, either, though, as the tune was based on “El Loco Cha Cha” by Cuban-American composer René Touzet y Monte.

  1. Reminds me of the week that 94.1 was Louie94.1 in the 90s during some reorg or something. One of the best weeks of my life. Nothing but Louie Louie, 24×7. Keep it up, Utahsgoat!

  2. I love your playlist. I’m hearing songs that I haven’t heard in years. GREAT! One suggestion, it would be nice to see the groups name and year of the release of the song being played on my car radio dial.

    • Thanks for the suggestion! We’re working on this and hope to have it up soon. In the meantime, you can view the playlist on our website by clicking on the menu on the right of the player.

  3. How about playing the old patriotic songs like America the beautiful and red Shelton the star star spangled banner… , Ballad of the green Barret … Etc

  4. Hi! I just wanted to send everyone at Utahs GOAT a big thank you!! I’ve been listening since I first found it around a year ago! It plays constantly on the little radio in my room and it’s my alarm in the morning (alway something I love waking up too) Thanks and keep doing what you’re doing!! xoxo
