Song of the Day: Africa

Happy Monday morning everyone! Today’s song of the day is from the band Toto, who formed in 1977 in Los Angeles. Arguably their most popular song, “Africa,” was released in 1982 on the album Toto IV. It went all the way to the #1 spot on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart, where it remained for a week. It was also immensely popular in various other locations around the world. A few years ago the song was brought back in the spotlight when the popular rock group Weezer covered it. Personally, I thought their version was very good and they did it justice, but the original version of this song will always remain king.
