Thinking about “Sloopy” – a LOUIE relative

Some of you may be asking….. “What’s all this about LOUIE? What about SLOOPY?”

There actually was a real person named “Sloopy.”

Speaking of Sloopy, here’s a version you might have missed, originally posted to […]

It’s time for we like to call a “LOUIE Mutant” – a song that embraces the essence of LOUIE in a major way, but somehow becomes another song in it’s own right.

Ladies and Gentlemen, it’s a time for a new song by the Rubinoos, simply titled “I Love Louie Louie!”

This particular […]

Sonny & Cher – LOUIE (mutant) of the Week

It’s time for another rarity borrowed from the LOUIE YouTube universe.

“Brother Louie” is perhaps the most popular LOUIE LOUIE mutant. A lot of people get it confused with Richard Berry‘s “LOUIE LOUIE.” Written and sung by Errol Brown and Tony Wilson of the group Hot Chocolate, it was a top 10 hit in […]

Unknown LOUIE (KFJC version #332) & other ponderings- LOUIE of the Week

This week, the LOUIE spotlight is on yet another Unknown LOUIE LOUIE recording from the KFJC Maximum LOUIE LOUIE Marathon.

A few years ago, I wrote up a post entitled “KFJC Tomb of the Unknown LOUIEs” which sought to identify some of the recordings that couldn’t be identified. Since that particular posting, a […]

The Nips – Gabrielle – LOUIE (Mutant) of the Week

This week, we’ll point the mighty LOUIE spotlight at what we at LOUIE CENTRAL like to call a “LOUIE Mutant”- a song that borrows heavily from LOUIE LOUIE, but is another song entirely, as opposed to a “LOUIE Bastard,” which would be a completely blatant swipe of LOUIE LOUIE, albeit with a different song […]

Hot Chocolate’s Brother Louie (1973) – LOUIE of the Week

This week, the LOUIE spotlight is on “Brother Louie,” a song which many people have confused with Richard Berry‘s LOUIE LOUIE. “Brother Louie” became a hit recording with Ian Lloyd & Stories back in 1973, and was brought back into the spotlight in 2010 with the TV show entitled LOUIE, a sitcom loosely based […]

James Henry & Olympics – Sloopy (LOUIE-mutant) of the Week

This week, the LOUIE of the Week spotlight goes out to a song that’s not quite LOUIE, but a close relative of the song… a variation that we in the LOUIE circle would refer to as a “LOUIE Mutant.”

It’s also an extra special tribute to our friend John Thoennes, who just passed away recently. […]

Brother Lincoln- spoof of Brother Louie

Just in case you missed it, on Saturday Night Live a few nights ago, Louis C.K. did a little spoof of his own “LOUIE” TV show, transforming Abraham Lincoln into a standup comedian. For the theme music, Ian Lloyd of the Stories did a revision of his hit song “Brother LOUIE,” which became “Brother […]

Ian Lloyd & Mary Wilson- LOUIE of the Week

This week’s LOUIE isn’t Richard Berry‘s classic melody, but the song “Brother Louie,” which is often mistaken for LOUIE LOUIE. Originally written by Errol Brown and Tony Wilson of the group Hot Chocolate, this song was a top 10 UK chart hit for the band in 1973, but it didn’t become a hit in States […]
