The Tokens, Rock & Roll

  1. in the jungle, the Nigerian Jungle, Boko Harum sleeps tonight near the village the peaceful village the Islamists scums sleep tonight
  2. 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.
  3. White people: copying black people since 1961
  4. Anyone else remember the animation of the dog and the hippo?

  11. !!!!!!!!!!!!!.ascoltata,qualche anno fa.disco nel giradischi della lancia ''flavia'',nuova,quasi,a ''casertavecchia''.unica e sola volta che sono andato,con miei cugini,li'.posto bellissimo.poi trovammo,in un bar, juke-box,con,anche,questo motivo!!!.vero!!!.ricordi ,legati,ad un motivo musicale.e si ritorna a vivere momenti,emozioni,rivedere volti,ascoltare parole.bello e' ricordare .sulle note di una canzone.almeno,credo-io.
  12. 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.
  13. I always was impressed by the tokens . That is taking a folk song from another continent and making it into an american classic. Just not sure if they were the first to do this song . I think their version was the best anyway
  14. miłego popołudnia happy weekend !!!!!!
  15. There are 2 kinds of music, good and bad, and time sifts out the good stuff like kernels of wheat from the chaff. Also, the cats sleep more or less around the clock, but try as I might I can't seem to make a good song out of that concept.
  16. The Lion Sleeps Tonight The Tokens
  17. near teh villug teh peaceful villug teh lyn feasts 2nite
  18. Great music, like all art, life and the worlds of profound beauty, can be fortified, cultivated and built to create a society where we are all uplifted...if we all pitch in to make it happen! I dig raising children to love and appreciate songs, such as this, which people feel inspired to sing along...my 12 year old just chimed in with 'I LOVE this song!!!!!" 
  19. Where do most of you people come from??? Just listen to a song and do not try analize and tear it apart. Simply enjoy it. Who cares what you think it might mean today, or a hiddem message. WHO CARES!!! ENJOY IT DAMN IT. Just try not to be so damn stupid.

  21. Fucking thieves. This song was stolen from a black man of course. 
  22. Better luck next time, Detroit!
  23. ah, The Lion Sleeps Tonight. the same exact song that was played when Jim Carrey went wild all over Courtney Cox in Ace Ventura Pet Detective. 
  24. Still Together - Mac DeMarco :p
  25. This group is from Brighton Beach. No wonder the lead singer looks Russian with those high cheek bones.He looks lion like and he had a great voice. Much like their classic singers. It must be the heritage.
