Tuneful Tuesday offers a random Robert track for your listening fulfillment.
Yesterday, April 13, marked the 46th anniversary of an iconic recording of the song Louie Louie. It has been recorded by hundreds and performed by thousands. But the definitive version is arguably the Kingsmen version recorded in 1963. The song was originally written and recorded in the 50s by Richard Berry. The song has baffled fans and detractors alike, with the actual lyrics being subject to interpretation. The song has inspired entire websites and full length books.
Robert Plant recorded the song for the Wayne’s World soundtrack and it appears on the Sixty Six to Timbuktu
retrospective. Robert puts his unique stamp on the song, and also handles the lead guitar duties.
