Day 34 of 100 blogs in 100 days

Day 34 of WonderDawg's quest to visit 100 blogs in 100 days wound up in a local frat house / blog hosted by Eric Predoehl. The Louie Report is all about "Louie Louie" - we all remember that classic song by the Kingsmen - for its lyrics - whatever they were...

Louie Louie, oh no
Me gotta go
I said
Louie Louie, oh baby
Me gotta go

Welcome to LOUIE LOUIE.NET, the internet edition of the LOUIE REPORT. The LOUIE REPORT is a publication that tracks progress of the upcoming documentary entitled "THE MEANING OF LOUIE," produced and directed by Eric Predoehl. This documentary will be the an extensive review of the song "LOUIE LOUIE," and all things LOUIE. Produced with the complete approval of Richard Berry, the man who wrote this legendary melody, this documentary will study the history of the song, and all the people whose lives were changed in some form by the song.

Many years in the making, this project will be a comprehensive study of one of the most recognizable songs on the planet, from the story of Richard Berry; the Northwest rock scene in the early 1960's featuring The Wailers, Little Bill & the Blue Notes, the Frantics, and Dave Lewis Combo; leading to the massive success of The Kingsmen; the controversial F.B.I. investigations surrounding the questionable lyrics; the unique career of Paul Revere & the Raiders; the college party connection re-popularized by the movie ANIMAL HOUSE; and all the various musicians that were influenced by this song for better or worse.

This documentary will also discuss the nature of populist politics, music censorship, song writing, commercialization, and so much more. This ever-evolving website will provide a unique link for appreciators of fine music with production details, music trivia, and ideas about other places you might enjoy.
