TOTOS AFRICA COVERED AGAIN

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.


Got out the old BLUE ALBUM after seeing the cover of AFRICA
Now kiddies of today will get the jokes about blessing the rain...





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





In response to all these covers TOTO is now covering a Weezer song. Apparently TOTO thought Hash Pipe would be a good choice?


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!
