“Africa” by Toto

4 08 2013

My previous post about “Africa” by Thundermug reminded me of this song, which is a bit of a guilty pleasure of mine. In many ways, this song is awful – the lyrics are a bit trite, the music is bland, and the song tends to plod along a bit. But, oh, those harmonies. I could listen to them over and over again.

Toto formed in Los Angeles in 1977 when some studio musicians decided to form their own band. They’re still around, and have sold millions of records and won a Grammy and all that stuff.
