It's coming

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

Tomorrow at the sock hop, straight from Cuba, recorded by 1,500, performed by 15,000,000 in garages and bedrooms everywhere, investigated by the FBI and with its very own International Day comes ... ...

Hope y'all are ready. I've already got my decorations up.

The old Sam and Dave song "Hold On (I'm coming)" is written about this; it ain't about sex, dammit.

From Cuba to sock hops everywhere and at least a million garages before passing through the idiots and on to RFK and his FBI to over 1,500 recordings, the song that inspired a nation.

And tomorrow we celebrate with International ... ... Day

Okay, let's give it to 'em right now

I was running out of lyrical clues that I could clumsily fit into the conversation after 4 times. I'm only a secondary cultist, though. I used our BRD search feature for "April 11th" after billy.pilgrim's first post.

... investigated by the FBI ...
Lyrics investigation

In February 1964, an outraged parent wrote to Robert Kennedy, then the Attorney General of the United States, alleging that the lyrics of "Louie Louie" were obscene. The Federal Bureau of Investigation investigated the complaint. In June 1965, the FBI laboratory obtained a copy of the Kingsmen recording and, after four months of investigation, concluded that it could not be interpreted, that it was "unintelligible at any speed," and therefore the Bureau could not find that the recording was obscene. In September 1965, an FBI agent interviewed one member of the Kingsmen, who denied that there was any obscenity in the song. The FBI never bothered either to interview songwriter Richard Berry or to consult the actual lyrics that were on file with the U.S. Copyright Office.

A history of the song and its notoriety was published in 1992 by Dave Marsh, but when he wrote the said history, Marsh was unable to obtain permission to publish the song's actual lyrics. Richard Berry told Esquire Magazine, in 1988, that the Kingsmen had sung the song exactly as written.

The lyrics controversy resurfaced briefly in 2005 when the superintendent of the school system in Benton Harbor, Michigan, refused to let the marching band at one of the schools play the song in a parade. She later relented.
Unintelligible at any Speed would be a great name for a punk band.
The Kingsmen
Louie Louie Lyrics


... (*Did you know: Right before the second verse, drummer Lynn Easton audibly curses as he accidentally misses a cue)
The Kingsmen

... Another factor in the success of the record may have been the rumor that the lyrics were intentionally slurred by the Kingsmen—to cover up the alleged fact that the lyrics were laced with profanity, graphically depicting sex between the sailor and his lady. Crumpled pieces of paper professing to be "the real lyrics" to "Louie Louie" circulated among teens. The song was banned on many radio stations and in many places in the United States, including Indiana, where it was personally prohibited by Governor Matthew Welsh.

These actions were taken despite the small matter that practically no one could distinguish the actual lyrics. Denials of chicanery by Kingsmen and Ely did not stop the controversy. The FBI started a 31-month investigation into the matter and concluded they were "unable to interpret any of the wording in the record." Ironically, however, drummer Lynn Easton later admitted that he yelled "Fuck" after fumbling a drumstick at 0:54 on the record....
Great job, FBI. :lol:

The night before their recording session, the band played a 90-minute version of the song during a gig at a local teen club.

:shock:

That's all I got. I said me gotta go now
