When The Tokens Came On Stage To Sing “The Lion Sleeps Tonight”, They Had Everyone Singing Along 5k
By now the majority of us have heard the song “The Lion Sleeps Tonight”, whether through music, tv or films. It’s become a very popular song and it seems to be one where most people know the lyrics without even trying to learn them. It was released long before it reached the western music world, being created in South Africa almost a decade before it was popularized by The Tokens who made it a hit in the States. Since then, it hasn’t been covered by other artists much, but it’s certainly seen its uses in films and programmes.
