Song(s) of the Day

Certain songs are covered over and over by different artists – some over different time periods and music genres.  Built to last, numerous artists try their hand, hoping to leave their mark.  One of those is the early rock n’ roll classic Louie Louie.  Today, I thought I’d give you a series of videos by some of the many who have given it a go.  There’s a garage rock version, a reggae version, a punk version, a doo-wopish version, a rap version, a version by a new wave band, a ballad version (with strings!) and several just plain rock n roll versions.  Let me know which is your favorite.
