The Lion Sleeps Tonight

This was one of my favorite songs to sing along with, when I was a kid. Learning the lyrics to this song was easy enough, so that my cousins and I, could bust out and start singing the song, without the music playing on the radio.

I hope that you will enjoy listening to this song, because it is from a time, when I was young enough to not be worried about the stresses, from a grown ups point of view, during that time period.

How many people out there, remember this song from the early 70's? When I first heard this song, I thought that it sounded cool, because at that time, there wasn't very many songs that used this kind of music, especially when it was a song without words.
The music style is called synthpop. This song
became the first primarily electronic-based piece of music to reach the American popular music charts. It peaked at #9 on the billboard pop charts in 1972.

What do you think about this song? Does it make you feel like you need to pop some microwave popcorn?
