Are you in the mood for Doo-Wop music?
It has been said that there were 15,000 Doo-Wop groups that recorded at least one record. While that might be an exaggeration, certainly a few thousand did. Many would spend a few years trying.
Several of the songs in today’s medley might be familiar, while others were some who fell into the category of groups who “tried.” That includes The Tokens, who, by the way, were not the same group that recorded The Lion Sleeps Tonight.
Listeners with sharp eyes may see Lewis Lymon & The Teenchords on the list below and think of Frankie Lymon & The Teenagers (of Why Do Fools Fall In Love fame). Yep, Lewis was Frankie’s younger brother, and while he and his group never achieved the fame Frankie did, he avoided the drug problems (and fatal heroin overdose) his older brother did.
