The Tokens

This Brooklyn doo wop group was originally known as the Linc-Tones when it formed in 1955 at Lincoln High School. Hank Medress, Neil Sedaka, Eddie Rabkin, and Cynthia Zolitin didn't have much impact in their early days recording for Melba. They later disbanded, but Medress re-formed the group in 1960 as the Tokens. Brothers Phil and Mitch Margo and Jay Siegel were now the members. They recorded for Warwick in 1960, then had their one glorious hit in 1962, "The Lion Sleeps Tonight." It was based on the South African Zulu song "Wimoweh," and reached number seven on the R&B chart while topping the pop surveys. The Tokens formed their own label in 1964, B.T. Puppy, but weren't able to keep the hits coming very long, although "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" remains a standard. ~ Ron Wynn

C'mon, Pandora, put The Tokens' Tonight I Fell In Love in the doo-wop lists. Lesser known, upbeat doo-wop.

Not only a good song but scientifical l y accurate. Lions do sleep at night but hippos doze throughout the day. Furthermore, vervet monkeys have a glandular secretion that allows them to never sleep. Unfortunatel y for The Tokens their followup recording based on this fact never really caught on with the public.

Is that a high-pitched human voice at the end or a Theraman like the Beach Boys used in Good Vibrations?

The TOKENS: THE LION SLEEPS TONIGHT. For me goes way back. Always love to hear this song! Play more of Tokens, Must read Bios.! Forgot about them.
Report as inappropriate
Thanks for the bio, I fell in love with The Lion song, I was 15, I'm 68 now but remember it like it was yesterday. I had it on a 45 RPM single record. Would have been nice to have more of the same style and quality, but it wasn't to be. It's still a nice memory. Had no idea that Neil Sedaka played any part in the history before reading this. Oh well he went on to bigger things.

Solomon Linda wrote this...and died in poverty. His family now gets some royalties but it is a shame that he never saw fame for this worldwide classic.
