The Tokens Version W&M By Luigi Creatore, Hugo Peretti, Albert Stanton & George David Weiss
Wikipedia: "The Lion Sleeps Tonight", also known as "Wimoweh", "Wimba Way" or "Awimbawe", is a song written and recorded originally by Solomon Linda with the Evening Birds for the South African Gallo Record Company in 1939 in Zulu, under the title "Mbube". In 1961, two RCA records producers, Hugo Peretti and Luigi Creatore, hired Juilliard-trained musician and lyricist George David Weiss to arrange a pop music cover of "Wimoweh", for a B-side for the teenage doo-wop group The Tokens. Weiss wrote the English lyrics: "In the jungle, the mighty jungle, The lion sleeps tonight..." and "Hush, my darling, don't fear, my darling..." Weiss also brought in soprano Anita Darian to reprise Yma Sumac's Exotica version, before, during and after the saxophone solo.

Words: Nick Kenny & Charles Kenny, Music: J. Fred Coots
"Love Letters in the Sand" is a popular song first published in 1931. The music was written by J. Fred Coots and the lyrics by Nick Kenny and Charles Kenny. The song was "inspired" by an 1881 composition, "The Spanish Cavalier" by William D. Hendrickson. Ted Black's orchestra had the first major hit.
Pat Boone's cover became a major hit in June and July 1957, spending 5 weeks at number one on the Billboard Top 100, with 34 weeks in total on the chart. Billboard ranked it as the No. 2 song for 1957. The song was used in Boone's film "Bernardine". Boone also did the whistling in the instrumental portion of the song as well. The song originally had a short instrumental introduction, however, most versions begin with Boone's voice.

The Bob Crewe Generation (1966), Andy Williams (1967)
W&M by Sidney Ramin and Anthony Velona
"Music to Watch Girls By" was the first Top 40 hit by Bob Crewe using his own name, recorded by his group The Bob Crewe Generation. Crewe first heard the song performed in a "jingle demo" for a Diet Pepsi commercial. Music was composed by Sidney "Sid" Ramin. The "big-band, horn driven" recording went to #15 on the pop chart and #2 on the Easy Listening chart. According to Greg Adams, writing for All Music Guide, the song "exemplified the groovy state of instrumental music at that time." Other instrumental versions of the song were recorded by Billy Vaughn, Chet Atkins, Al Hirt and Walter Wanderley. A vocal recording by Andy Williams, featuring lyrics written by Tony Velona, went to #34 in the United States, and after it was used in a Fiat ad in the UK, the re-released single reached the top ten. The version by Al Hirt reached #31 on the Adult Contemporary chart and #119 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1967. In 1967 Leonard Nimoy covered the song, renamed "Music To Watch Space Girls By" (a pre-space disco and Trek-related version) for his debut album Leonard Nimoy Presents Mr. Spock's Music From Outer Space. The Higsons covered the vocal version in 1984; this was released on a single and the album The Curse of the Higsons.

Reuters reported in 2007: "A few years ago poor renditions of Frank Sinatra's 'My Way' were enough to spark several fatal karaoke bar shootouts in the Philippines." Is the song cursed? In 2010, The New York Times quoted an “existential explanation” of singing instructor Butch Albarracin. “ ‘I did it my way’ — it’s so arrogant.... That’s why it leads to fights.”
