One of American Pop Music's first rebel singer songwriters is Lou Christie. Lou's songs really pushed the envelope lyrically. His music was absolutely pop gold. You know... I don't think I have met anyone who doesn't love "Lightning Strikes". All of Lou's songs are on my top list.
Lou Christie's chart topping, multi-million selling career as a songwriter, recording artist, and performer started in a two-track studio in Glenwillard Pennsylvania, his rural hometown near Pittsburgh. Lou's first million selling song, "The Gypsy Cried", transformed a local choirboy, Lugee Alfredo Giovanni Sacco, into Lou Christie and then into a national teen idol, while still a teenager himself.

Lou Christie Lou's chart success continued with two more million selling hits, "Rhapsody in the Rain" and "I'm Gonna Make You Mine".
