MUSIC OF THE WEEK
Hang On Snoopy
By The McCoys
The original version of Sloopy was written by a “high school kid in St. Louis” and sold to Bert Russell, according to Rick Derringer of the McCoys.
By one account, the inspiration for the song was Dorothy Sloop, a jazz singer from Steubenville, Ohio, and a student at Ohio University.
As for the dancer, her true identity has remained a mystery. Theories have been widespread and inaccurate. They are mainly based on gossip, online rumors, mislabeled photos, in general wrong information, urban legends and myths.
That situation has now changed. Lisa Leonard Dalton is the “Hang On Sloopy” dancer.
She was a teenager, living in LA (Woodland Hills) with her parents, when she appeared as “Sloopy Girl.” Lisa has provided photo evidence, a believable timeline, and more than a dozen witnesses support her claim of being the authentic “Sloopy” dancing girl. Those witnesses include her former male dance partner in the ’70s, her high school classmates, many other friends and all of her close relatives who grew up with Lisa.

Do you know why?
