The_Token_The_Lion_Sleeps_TonightFor this weeks throwback Thursday pick any oldie but a goodie.  It is The Lion Sleeps Tonight.  I remember first hearing this song as a kid.  It was the version The Nylons did > here.  While looking up info on this song found out it a lot older than I thought.  According to Wikipedia the song goes all they way back to 1939.  The most famous version is done by The Tokens.  You can hear it > here or below. It’s one of those songs everyone knows.
