Recommended Posts

Didja know...

 

The Tokens were a few Jewish guys at Lincoln High School in Brooklyn....

 

Neil Sedaka was a Token..before they hit it big...Neil went on his own and did alright..

 

The Tokens produced ALL the Chiffons hits..."One Fine Day".."He's So Fine"...etc. ..The Happenings.."See You In September"..."I Got Rhythm"...etc.

 

They did a lot more than "The Lion Sleeps Tonight"..

 

AND now... in his 70's...Lead Singer Jay Siegel is still incredible!!

 

Here's a little-known Gerry Goffin-Carole King Classic...Enjoy!!

This commercial was covered by MANY artists....perhaps that's why NO version was huge...BUT do you all remember this commercial and the subsequent Tokens Top 40..."Shoulda Been Bigger"- Top 40 Hit!?
