BLESS THE RAINS DOWN IN AFRICA

TOTO AFRICA MEMES

Toto's song Africa hit the number 1 spot on the billboard charts in 1983 and has been misheard by millions worldwide. There have been countless car karaoke mistakes with the lyrics. And, it's gone on long enough. The lyrics are "I BLESS the rains down in Africa!" BLESS! BLESS!
Not MISS!
Not KISS!
Not FELT!
Not SAW!


Toto's Africa lyrics are mixed up by all


Even Dads mistake the lyrics to AFRICA
TOTO says it best...


Right on Toto Bless The Rain
Get it? TOTO.

Rumour has it that some of the rain Toto blessed fell onto the top of Mount Kilimanjaro - it froze and is still there to this very day!


Toto blessed the rain in Africa and some of it was frozen on the peak of Kilimanjaro

Apparently, the band wrote the song about Africa, yet, had never actually been to the continent. I guess they blessed the rain after they sold their millionth copy of TOTO IV. At that point they believed they were rock gods - soft rock gods!


TOTO - Soft Rock Gods of 1983
The song was a huge hit in Canada which may be why thirty odd years later Karl Wolf did a remix /cover of the song which had a lot of airplay in Canada (hitting the 2 spot on the Canada Hot 100 chart).



The original by TOTO - you decide which one is better.



I will leave you with one last question:


I believe the rain will win.
