Africa

by Toto

Lyrics

I hear the drums echoing tonight
But she hears only whispers of some quiet conversation
She's coming in, 12:30 flight
The moonlit wings reflect the stars that guide me towards salvation

1983 was my favorite year for music ever. Such variety. 1984, too. 1985 was still pretty good but started to backslide.

An 80's playlist would be incomplete without this all time classic

The song Africa is a masterpiece as if it were a painting.

Half of this band were session musicians on MJ's Thriller. One of the Porcaro brothers wrote "Human Nature". Now tell me Toto isn't great!

Classic 80's

No wonder Toto was named after the cute little dog from the Wizard of Oz. When I listen to a song by Toto, I will think of that dog from Oz and this song too.
