Alexander Surmont – Italian LOUIE of the Week


With three days before the very FIRST Italian LOUIE LOUIE Marathon, the time was right to share a very cool Italian version of the song, which far as I know, has NEVER been shared publicly!

Alexander Surmont of Belgium provided a magnificent Italian language version of LOUIE LOUIE for the LOUIE LOUIE documentary project that absolutely needed to be shared for this marathon! In this recording, he rephrases the song as ‘Da lui non hai’ which translates to ‘From him, you never have.’ The chords on this version use the (D/ G / Am) structure.

As I didn’t have any footage of Alexander, so I decided to try something a little different for this YouTube clip…. I pulled together some video footage I shot around some of my favorite beaches around San Francisco and Santa Cruz, where I often escape to whenever I need to go see the ocean.

Gunny the Dawg, the official mascot & house dog of makes a guest appearance for the first few seconds on this thing….

Anyways, I’d like to encourage all of my friends to tune into the FIRST ITALIAN LOUIE LOUIE MARATHON on April 11th, 2015 starting at 4 PM CET, which turns out to be 10 am EDT (New York time) or 7 am PDT (San Francisco time). (More time conversions can be figured out over at The World Clock website)

This program will be streaming on air on and live in Via Pontorme 68 ad Empoli (Firenze)-Tuscany-Italy !

For those of you having problems listening to the webstream, here’s how to do this….

Go to this page:

There’s an assortment of options to choose from, depending on your device + operating system.

For me, my favorite way of listening is via iTunes on my MacBook Pro. To do this, I had to download a “playlist.pls” file, which I added to my iTunes library… and voila, I’m able to listen via iTunes!

I could also listen to it via Quicktime player by downloading the “playlist.qtl” file.

There’s also a TuneIn Radio app you can download for an iPhone or IPad.
