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.

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.

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

I have a vague recollection of this song. Leapy Lee sure was a character!

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