Elvis Runner Up On Ultimate Jukebox Poll

A 40-year-old track whose indecipherable lyrics were subject to an FBI investigation has pipped Elvis to top a poll as the ultimate jukebox record. The song "Louie Louie" by The Kingsmen made it to just 26 in the UK charts but became one of the most famous garage rock hits. FBI staff were set to work listening to the song at various speeds to check whether the mumbled words were really obscene. Elvis Presley classic 1961 hit (Marie's The Name) His Latest Flame was runner-up in the Mojo Ultimate Jukebox, a list of the 100 singles, which experts from Mojo magazine say all music fans should own.
