April has two significant meanings for the song Louie Louie - the original recording by Richard Berry and the Pharaohs was released in April of 1957, and The Kingsman released the most famous recording in April of 1963. Hence, the celebration of Louie Louie on the last edition of NonDescript to air in April.

That's an entire hour of Louie, Louie - in the spirit of KFJC and KALX dueling Louie, Louie marathons of 1983.

How long did it take you to find 14 versions of Louie Louie?



Hell, I can get you a toe by three o'clock this afternoon...with nail polish.

Longer than I initially thought - a few hours. I also tried to eliminate versions that were really, really bad - which, given the source material, was entirely subjective.

According to LouieLouie.Net, there are over 1500 versions of Louie Louie out there. KFJC did a 63 hour Louie Louie marathon in 1983, which included over 800 covers of the tune - back when there wasn't the benefit of online music retailers.

Grimis said: ``Coming up with something original'' is the rarest thing in any art form. It is widely held that the Greeks exhausted every possible dramatic plot two thousand years ago. Last I checked there have been great dramas written since then.
