The year is 1965 and an almost unknown rock band from Ohio called The McCoys recorded a song called "Hang On Sloopy."
"Hang On Sloopy" was inspired by a woman named Dorothy Sloop who was a native of Steubenville, Ohio. Apparently she had a career as a singer in the 1950's and used the name "Sloopy" as a stage name. Dorothy Sloop passed away in Pass Christian, Mississippi. Her song will long live on in the hearts of people for years to come....
hang on sloopy, sloopy hang on...
"some of these young kids think that Sting and the police ripped off puff daddy with their song "I'll be watching you", same kids that think Sloopy is some kind of freaky sex"
