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, Rovi

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.

The Tokens also had Tonight I Fell In Love and were the musicians on Keith's hit 98.6.

This freaked me out. This isn't fake. Apparently, if you copy and paste this in ten comments in 10 minutes you'll have the best day of your life tomorrow. You will either be kissed or asked out. If you break this chain, you will see a little girl in your room tonight. In the next 4 minutes, someone will say I love you or I'm sorry.

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. tomorrow will be your life. however if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. you started reading this so don't stop. this is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in the next 143 minutes. when done press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen in big letters this is scary because it actually works.....*s i g h s * I'm sorry about this.....
