Hi Folks! For this bonus episode we listen to TOTO's song "Africa". Originally released in 1982 it was an instant hit and quickly landed at number one on the charts. In recent years "Africa" has gained new popularity thanks to a cover from the band Weezer. We will discuss both groups versions of the song and both band's music videos (yes TOTO's video is early 80's cheesy gold). As always we dive into the history of the band and the song. Tune in and find out why we love TOTO's version and have differing opinions on Weezer's version. Thanks for listening!
