And yet, from your link:
The names of the nominees and other information about the nominations cannot be revealed until 50 years later.

50 Year Secrecy Rule
The Committee does not itself announce the names of nominees, neither to the media nor to the candidates themselves. In so far as certain names crop up in the advance speculations as to who will be awarded any given year's Prize, this is either sheer guesswork or information put out by the person or persons behind the nomination. Information in the Nobel Committee's nomination database is not made public until after fifty years.

Cewley: louie louie lead singer was jack ely, not this schmoe.


Jack Ely was singing "Louie Louie" with the Kingsmen 50 years ago, when they recorded the hit record. This schmoe was singing it with them 45 years ago.

Anybody can be nominated for the peace prize. Being seriously considered is a whole different thing.

Dick "Dick" Cheney was nominated. Rush Limbaugh was nominated.

100,000 dead Iraqi civilians and dozens of Dominican boy prostitutes can tell you mere nomination is meaningless.

Wrong, only qualified individuals may nominate people for the Peace Prize. There is zero proof that either Limbaugh  or Cheney  have ever been nominated.  I doubt either one has ever been nominated.

...or we could just smile and say  "Hey, a nice guy has been doing selfless things for a long time to help people." Sure, that could apply to countless people, but it's nice to read a story like this once in a while.

I don't think a pat on this guy's back will kill anyone.

McKay couldn't even bother to spell Muhammad Ali's name correctly much less research Peace Prize rules. Doesn't have a bearing on the good work the guy is doing though.

The best thing about "Louie, Louie" is that someone made a cheesy parody called "Pharaoh, Pharaoh" about the Israelites' exodus from Egypt. That part isn't great, what's great is that Vacation Bible Schoolers and Jewish Summer Camp kids get into heated pissing matches trying to claim "ownership" over something so corny.

Winning doesn't mean jack shiat either, since Kissenger has one, and Gandhi never won one. I'm surprised Hitler and Chamberlain didn't share one, based on how just signing a worthless scrap of paper in the middle east fast tracks you for it.

The implication of the headline is that when you hear the recording, you're hearing this guy.  This guy is essentially a cover artist.

That's the implication of TFA as well. It sounds like the regular editors are off for the weekend and some rookie rewrote a press release.

There is actual profanity in the song.  When the key changes the drummer misses the beat and drops an f-bomb.  However, this unintended ad lib has nothing to do with the lyrics.

So the story about death row inmate Stanley "Tookie" Williams being nominated for a Nobel Prize in 2005 is B.S.?

Wikipedia: "The statutes of the Nobel Foundation do not allow information about nominations, considerations or investigations relating to awarding the prize to be made public for at least 50 years after a prize has been awarded. Over time many individuals have become known as "Nobel Peace Prize Nominees", but this designation has no official standing."

Just saying.

There is no key change in this song; it's A - D - Em - D throughout.

/you can hear someone yell in the background just before the 2nd verse, but the drummer doesn't miss the beat
//the singer comes in 2 bars early after the guitar solo, catches himself, and starts over

Phoenix_M: There is zero proof that either Limbaugh or Cheney have ever been nominated


Human Events.com - May 30 2007 - 'The conservative Landmark Legal Foundation nominated another American political figure for the prize: syndicated radio talk-show host Rush Limbaugh. In the letter nominating Limbaugh, Landmark President and fellow radio talk-show host Mark Levin, pressed the case that Limbaugh "gives voice to the values of democratic governance, individual opportunity and the just, equal application of the rule of law.'


Yup. "Members of National Assemblies" means Michelle Bachmann can submit names, or any of our other Congressional Crazies. "Professors of social science, history, philosophy, law and theology;" means guys like Robert Bork (may his soul burn) could send in nominations. "Leaders of peace research institutes and institutes of foreign affairs" means whatever neocon think tank you can name can spam the Norwegians with Dick Cheney's name. I personally know a fair number of people who qualify, and if I wanted to, I don't think it would be hard for me to talk one of them into sending in a name as a joke. Actually, given the sense of humor prevalent in the humanities department where I went to school... Yeah, that wouldn't be much of a challenge.

"Nobel Peace Prize Nominee" means nothing. A lot of people meet the standard to send in a nomination, and being nominated does not mean you make it into serious contention. It means that somebody put out a press release saying they mailed in your name.

Always wondered why they left that in there.  That's some super lazy engineering, that would have taken a couple of minutes to fix (unless it was not multitracked).

I had a book about the early history of rock & roll that detailed the recording session for that song. The studio setup was a single microphone suspended from the ceiling about 8 feet off the floor directly over the middle of the band, which was recorded direct to 2-track mono tape in a single take. The reason the vocals are so indistinguishable is that the vocalist had to lean back and yell at a mike that was dangling 2 feet over his head while trying to hear himself over the band without headphones.

That would explain it, no multitracking.  They must have been really hurting for studio time though, that song is only a hair over two minutes long.  Surprised they didn't retrack it.

That's exactly what happened. They only had enough cash for one take and they had to record something for the flip side of the 45. Also the producer told the engineer he wanted the vocals the same level as the instruments. That misled one rock journalist to claim the studio was "primitive". The engineer/owner corrected him on that by explaining that Paul Revere and the Raiders also recorded that same song about the same time in his studio which was state of the art in 1963.

I also read that the band thought it was a trial run.
