Hang on Sloopy meets the Amish

Bouser's Barn in Union City is a little family restaurant that serves country-style food. There's an Amish horse-and-buggy in the parking lot, and the interior is decorated with memorabilia about the McCoys, who recorded "Hang On Sloopy" and were from Union City.

[Kitsa, 08/20/2012]

The history of the song Hang On Sloopy is almost as enigmatic as its title (Look it up on the interwebs if you have time). It was a No. 1 hit in 1965, and currently is the official rock song of the state of Ohio.
