Brief Description

Please Louise is a song that I originally called Stephanie, who was one of my first girlfriends, but I switched it partly because my wife's middle name is Louise, and kind of out of respect for her to not have a song titled after a past girlfriend, but what I didn't share with her at the time is the fact that by a strange coincidence I also happen to have dated several girls who all had Louise as a middle name.  It has a style of the innocent early rock and roll songs of the late 50s, and it's about the innocence of "dating" for someone at that age, and I suppose that meant asking her to go with me, then wanting to "work on our night moves" as Bob Seger said.  So, I've got a song with a slot there to substitute any three-syllable girl's name, which would be good for tailoring to an audience member in a live setting. Funny how you remember things like that.  Anyway, this was a riff song, and I honestly don't remember if I came up with the riff before the lyrics or not since it was so long ago that I wrote it.  These are rare for me, release-wise, but I have actually written quite a few riff-based tunes over the years, but this was one of the few that made the cut in my weeding out process.  I had been meaning to record a decent version for over a decade until I finally got around to it.
