I think nothing says college like "Louie Louie." I hear this song, and I am instantly transported to every college dance, frat party, beach party, dorm party, progressive party, etc I ever attended. Well, the ones I can remember anyway, and what's funny is while you can totally dance to it, you can't sing anything but the chorus because no one knows the words. At least in this version I found on YouTube, you get a sense of the words, but still... not a song to sing along to.
The year I went to San Diego State it was ranked by Playboy as the number 3 party school in the country. There were over 36,000 students on campus. The Greek system was in full swing. It was a great time to be young and in college. Which explains why I needed a solid almost 4.0 in my pre-med studies to make up for the sins of my youth... but it was so worth it living the full college experience. So grab that toga, bring the beer bong, crank up the stereo and sing along!
These are the words, by the way:
Louie Louie, oh no, Me gotta go
Aye-yi-yi-yi, I said
Louie Louie, oh baby, Me gotta go
Fine little girl waits for me, Catch a ship across the sea
Sail that ship about, all alone, Never know if I make it home
Three nights and days I sail the sea, Think of girl, constantly
On that ship, I dream she's there,I smell the rose in her hair.
Okay, let's give it to 'em, right now!
See Jamaica, the moon above, It won't be long, me see me love
Take her in my arms again, Tell her I'll never leave again
Let's take it on outa here now
