Hey everyone! Some of you might be too young to remember this song, but for those of you who do. Didja know........



On February 17, 1964, the FBI launched a sweeping investigation into a problem that threatened to subvert the nation. Namely, were the lyrics to the song "Louie Louie" by the Kingsmen filthy or not? After months of intensive analysis, the bureau was unable to conclude what the actual lyrics were, and the case was dropped. The tune, written by Richard Berry, remains the nation’s most popular party song.

LOL. I clearly remember this.

It was actually fairly nasty for the 60s but the words are slurred enough that most folks don't know what they really are unless they go snooping around like we did. It is still a great dancing song.

I killed eight gophers last year and a purebred Tennesse walking horse that was looking at me funny.

Oh man. What kind of lefty hootenanny is this?"
