In a sudden and tragic moment, this truly memorable artist left us late last night after a lengthy illness. 

Frankie Ford sang his way to instant popularity with his single "Sea Cruise" in 1959. Also known as 'The New Orleans Dynamo', Ford has continued performing at venues worldwide since his career began. 

His mega hit is most recognizable by the tag line "Ooh-wee, ooh-wee, baby!" and has been used throughout media, advertising, and pop culture ever since it rocked the charts.

Ford, a Gretna, LA native, has always called New Orleans home no matter where he is. In 2010, Louisiana honored him by inducting him into The Louisiana Hall of Fame. He has since been inducted into The Gulf Coast Music Hall of Fame, and received the Lifetime Achievement Award from The South Louisiana Music Association. 

It is such a tragedy to lose a talented musician such as this. Our thoughts are with his family during this difficult time. 

R.I.P. Frankie Ford

In remembrance of this great artist, we have included 1959 footage of his time-worn single "Sea Cruise" below. 

LYRICS BELOW

Old man rhythm is in my shoes
No use t'sittin' and a'singin' the blues
So be my guest, you got nothin' to lose
Won't ya let me take you on a sea cruise?

Oo-ee, oo-ee baby
Oo-ee, oo-ee baby
Oo-ee, oo-ee baby
Won't ya let me take you on a sea cruise?

Feel like jumpin' baby won't ya join me please
I don't like beggin' but I'm on bended knee

I got to get t'rockin get my hat off the rack
I got to boogie woogie like a knife in the back
So be my guest, you got nothin' to lose
Won't ya let me take you on a sea cruise?

Oo-ee, oo-ee baby
Oo-ee, oo-ee baby
Oo-ee, oo-ee baby
Won't ya let me take you on a sea cruise?

I got to get t'movin' baby I ain't lyin'
My heart is beatin' rhythm and it's right on time
So be my guest, you got nothin' to lose
Won't ya let me take you on a sea cruise?

Oo-ee, oo-ee baby
Oo-ee, oo-ee baby
Oo-ee, oo-ee baby
Won't ya let me take you on a sea cruise?

Feel like jumpin' baby won't ya join me please
I don't like beggin' but I'm on bended knee

Oo-ee, oo-ee baby
Oo-ee, oo-ee baby
Oo-ee, oo-ee baby
Won't ya let me take you on a sea cruise?
