The number one song that gets stuck in my head is an older one. It's from The Tokens, a do whop band from Brooklyn New York. The song is The Lion Sleeps Tonight. They had other hits but none as big as this one. The part of the song that seems to make it stick in my head is A weema-weh, a-weema-weh, a-weema-weh, A weema-weh, a-weema-weh, a-weema-weh, I may continue this list next week because as I said when I started this this week there are so many songs that get stuck in my mind. If not next week, perhaps again somewhere down the road. picture from google pictures.

Yes he did. I had to research this before writing it because I wanted to be sure I got the right group with the song. I get some of the do whop bands confused. I read about that. Have a blessed day.

OH yeah, that is very sing able song, and one that does get stuck in heads. I think that has happened to me too. I had no idea it was the Tokens who did it though. I don't think I ever heard of them!

They had some other hits into the early 70's but this was by far their greatest hit. Have a blessed day

The Lion Sleeps Tonight: never sticked to my head, finding it boring.

A big favorite when I was a kid. A catchy song it is.
