Synopsis

Product Description
Its hard to believe that a South African folk song called Wimoweh could go on to become one of the biggest and most recognizable pop songs in rock & roll history but it did. Adding a few new lyrics to the original song, the Tokens version would go on to sell more than a million copies and hold the #1 spot on the charts for over three weeks in 1961. The group had had some prior success earlier in the year with the #15 Tonight I Fell in Love but nothing would prepare them to the amazing success of The Lion Sleeps Tonight They would go on to find limited chart success with songs like I Hear Trumpets Blow and Portrait of My Love and in 1994 thanks to the release of the Disney movie classic The Lion King , The Lion Sleeps Tonight would once again find a spot on the Top 100 Pop Chart at #51.
