The Tokens, Rock & Roll

  1. You people come on here and say the most retarded things. Pathetic. Just enjoy the song ffs. I don't know if any of you geniuses have noticed but all humanity has been doing for many generations is 'copying' each other. It's almost like we've all run out of individual ideas or if anyone has an original idea, it's not recognized nor appreciated. It's not about race, idiots.
  2. White people: copying black people since 1961
  3. Wasssssssssssssssssssup Delayed entry tonight. But It was unavoidable. This is one of those songs that is sure to bury itself into your skin. BWAHAHaHaaaaaa
  4. The Tokens - The Lion Sleeps Tonight:
  5. 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.
  6. miłego popołudnia happy weekend !!!!!!

  8. U kidding me that this was not made by Disney... Childhood shattered by the truth.
  9. i'm just listening to a random youtube playlist when this suddenly comes on i feel so nostalgic for some reason 
  11. great song! takes me way back!
  12. nice copy and thanks for posting the original version.
  13. Song is worth 15 million dollars but the writer died in poverty without a cent. Columbused! 
  14. ♪♫ This Day in Rock History: December 13, 1961 – The Tokens Hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart with: “The Lion Sleeps Tonight”. The song was originally written and recorded by Solomon Linda with the Evening Birds in 1939 under the title: "Mbube". The original lyrics were in the Zulu language. ♪♫

  16. It reminds me of my sisters hairdryer on a rainy Saturday afternoon in upstate New York.If I could crawl inside the record player I could find embryonic bliss.
  17. This is better then Frozen because its boring

  20. If you type 'The lion sleeps tonight 1939' you can hear the original version of this song. It's not bad either.
  21. Настоящая музыка - бессмертна. А попса - для зомби поколения.
  22. The Doo-wop style of music in the 50s strangely never got any opposition by the conservatives in the 50s, though it was very African in style, but for some strange reason Rock & Roll got all the opposition and hatred.
  23. try slowing down the speed
  24. The notion of stolen culture[ as if it all isn't built on what came before] is another weird sense of entitlement, you know " somebody owes us for what contributions "we" might have made". Never mind what so many others have done, or what "we" appropriate".
  25. The zulu tribe was the most warmongering of all African tribes, did they really come up with this song after slaughtering many colored africans over centuries....
