Laughin' Louie is a song by Louis Armstrong, recorded by him and his orchestra in either 1932 or 1933. I've heard the song once, way the heck back in elementary school. All I remember was that is was hilarious. I think it started out as a standard song, a trumpet flubs, musicians giggle, another instrument screws up, and it's all downhill from there... the song dissolves into laughter. I could be very very wrong about how the song goes, but that's the gist of it. I think it was held up as an example of the joy of music by the school's music teacher.

I later learned that the song was recorded in one take immediately after Armstrong, a man who kept at least three small South American countries afloat with his pot-smoking budget, made his entire orchestra toke up, most for the first time. Since then, I've referred to reefer as 'a little of the Laughin' Louie'.
