"Louie Louie" started as an innocent ditty about a lovesick Jamaican sailor. But The Kingsmen turned it into one of the most censored and celebrated songs to capture the American imagination. Bestselling author Marsh presents a comprehensive, entertaining social history of the raucous rock anthem, including the actual lyrics.

  • Outstanding book! Dave Marsh has an outstanding writing style and a brilliant humorous side to his descriptive story telling. He demonstrates a wealth of inside rock ‘n roll knowledge. Easy read!

  • "LOUIE LOUIE" is a perfectly fascinating look at the rise of the legend of the purportedly "dirty" song. This is a "MUST HAVE" for those obsessed by rock and roll music and those who simply enjoy a really good read! If you remember the song (and who doesn't?!), you'll LOVE this book.

  • Liked the book. Author seemed to really know a lot about the history of Louie Louie.

  • Ever wondered what the true story was about the "dirty" lyrics in Louie louie? Wonder no more. After reading this book, you'll know the whole shocking truth (and don't say I didn't warn you).

  • cool book

  • Interesting history of the song and it's evolution. Author often use of words requiring a dictionary is annoying.

  • Disappointing to say the least.

  • By following the fate of one song Marsh gives us an excellent feel for how culture operates at a middle scale, somewhere between the micro-scale of individual performances and listenings and the macroscale of decades-long changes in musical styles. If you're interested in "memetics" but tired of empty bloviation about mind viruses and such, read this book and follow one musical meme on its tour of the memesphere.
