The Tokens, Rock & Roll

  1. Questo pezzo è stato scritto negli anni '40 sulla base di una melodia africana e fu portato al successo poi negli anni '60 dai The Tokens, un altro celebre gruppo Doo-wop. Nei tempi moderni è divenuta famosa come colonna sonora del film Disney "Il re leone". Il titolo del brano è "The Lion Sleeps Tonight". Buona serata.

  10. Solomon Linda A BLACK MAN wrote and created this song, like most blacks, he didn't get the credit for it, and died broke, whites took it, made a trickle down version of it, and got filthy rich without giving proper credit to the rightful owner, well, now you know folks
