AFRICA IS COVERED BY WEEZER
Esquire has it right in this article, Toto's song Africa is timeless! Earlier this year Weezer released a cover of AFRICA and it has created some waves (more than just sound waves) with them Millenials. Turns out kids today like the song - see, timeless!
HERE IS THE SONG - WEEZER did a great job...kept it very close to the original, only adding a little chunky distorted guitar where warranted.
Funny to hear about Weezer again. I love/loved Weezer.

Weezer also released a cover or Toto's soft rock hit Rosanna. The cover made the #2 chart spot in the UK...geez, TOTO is on a roll.
This version of ROSANNA is bang on - it's like I'm listening to TOTO
|Weezer is a 90s alternative band|
Toto's cover of Weezer's song is interesting. For some reason I can't take is seriously. It sounds great, but, The Toto (or is it TOTO 2 now?) is not a grunge/alternative rock band...they are missing that certain something?
If I had any say, I'd tell TOTO to cover Weezer's Buddy Holly (now, that song is timeless)!
Keep up the good work WEEZER & TOTO!
