Bragg Jack by Mano Negra – LOUIE Mutant of the Week

My friend Clay Stabler shared this one with me!

This one is new to me: “Bragg Jack” by the French group Mano Negra from their 1988 Patchanka LP — named by the French edition of Rolling Stone as the 32nd greatest French album of all time! Who knew? Definitely a LL descendent with the […]

Thinking about “Sloopy” – a LOUIE relative

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

Luckily, History’s Dumpster (a website) has something about that very song.

There actually was a real person named “Sloopy.”

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

The Rubinoos – LOUIE (mutant) of the Week

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 […]
