I just read that Hank Medress died. (And, I hope my obituary doesn’t run next to an ad for cellulite cream that shows too much of some woman’s ass before and "after" use. How very sad.) I used to play my 45 of The Lion Sleeps Tonight over and over and over. I have a memory of Breaking Up Is Hard To Do (Neil Sedaka) being on the flipside, but I don’t think that ‘s right.
I’m going to put The Lion Sleeps Tonight on my iPod so my kids can listen to it in the car. I think they’ll like it. Unfortunately, I played Breaking Up Is Hard To Do so many times that thirty something years later I’m STILL sick of it.
