“Africa” by Toto is one of the best ’80s jams ever with quite possibly the worst lyrics ever. “The wild dogs cry out in the night as they grow restless longing for some solitary company?” What the hell is solitary company? And “I know that I must do what’s right sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the Serengeti?” What the hell are you talking about, Toto? And that’s in the same verse. It’s hard to argue with the groove of the song though. Long Branch, NJ band Circuitry didn’t. Thanks to Gear Gods, we now know there’s a djent cover of the 1982 classic by the band, and your live will be better for it. Or at least more interesting.
The song’s available for free download here.
