Jack Ely (1943-2015)


Recommended Posts



Jack Ely, lead singer of the 1960s group The Kingsmen, has died at the age of 71. It was Ely who sang the group's version of the song "Louie Louie," which became a popular -- and yet controversial -- party anthem during the decade.




The Kingsmen's version of the song, which was used to great effect in John Landis' 1978 comedy hit "National Lampoon's Animal House," is noted for its unintelligible lyrics.


I still don't understand them.
