Vote By Texting L-O-U-E-E-E-E

Deep thought: what if "Louie Louie" was totally like written to prepare the universe for Lou Reed... man?

Great versions by the Kingsmen, the Kinks, etc et al of course but the guitar on these two just turs ut up. Plus Iggy's rhyme-'o-the-day: "Well a fine little girl, she's waiting for me / But I'm as bent as Dostoevsky."

MP3 The Sonics / Louie Louie (Richard Berry cover, 1965-ish)

MP3 Iggy Pop / Louie Louie (Richard Berry cover, 1993)
