Little Arrows -- Leapy Lee

George Kelley mentioned Sam Cooke's "Cupid" to me, and that reminded me of a favorite cupid-type song of mine. Here it is. Interesting info on Leapy Lee here.

  1. I think it charted in the U.S. around Christmas 1968. For some reason, it and Englebert's LES BICYCLETTES DE BELSIZE stick in my memory from that time, I think because they had heavy radio play during the week I had final exams.

  2. You're right about the date. I've added a link to the Wikipedia article on Leapy Lee. He's had an interesting life.

  4. Leapy Lee is indeed still active and has just released the "Little Arrows II" EP forty years after the first version!
