Top 5 versions of "Louie Louie"

Second part of the Bank Holiday special, and this song's an institution on its own. The Sonics version is once again my favourite though I've still got a soft spot for the Kingsmen's more famous recording. Poor old Richard Berry's trailing behind his imitators again but he certainly knew how to write a good tune. Anyone who's off to see The Sonics tonight have a bloody good time - it'd be hard not too!

1. The Sonics

2. The Kingsmen

3. Motorhead

4. Paul Revere and the Raiders

5. Richard Berry & the Pharoahs
