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.
