Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 10/11/18 3:20am Roberto:

I have to admit I never heard this on the radio when it was new because I listened to harder-rock stations only. However, I did visit Africa the following year so maybe there was a subliminal effect.

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 10/11/18 3:33am Roberto:

Toto's follow-up to Africa, "Europe," wasn't nearly as successful. They really tried to push the envelope with the lyric "sure as Olympus rises like Kilimanjaro above the Aegean."
  Thu. 10/11/18 3:37am old ERIC thee hat:

Also, the line, ‘Gonna take the time to do the things we’ve actually already tried to do, but alas, to no avail, so like any sensible colonist, we’ll keep beating this dead horse’...not received well.

"There's nothing that a hundred hedgehogs or more could ever do" wasn't particularly well-advised either.

THIS is what Freeform radio is all about. If you don't love it, it's not for you. It's certainly not for everyone. I don't like anything everyone likes, and that, I like a lot. You've got big balls, Nick. Good for you!

Bonnie gave a lap dance to her future husband Joe in Family Guy. At the end of the episode, they play Africa again, but Joe gives Bonnie the lap dance to win her back. Great episode and they played Africa twice, and that was on television!

“Through Goshen Hollow, where hemlocks grow,
Where rushing rills, with flash and flow,
Are over the rough rocks falling;
Where fox, where bear, and catamount hide,
In holes and dens In the mountain side,
A Circuit-preacher once used to ride,
And his name was Rufus Rawling. “

OVERVIEW

LYRICS

LISTEN


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
I stopped an old man along the way
Hoping to find some long forgotten words or ancient melodies
He turned to me as if to say, "Hurry boy, it's waiting there for you"

It's gonna take a lot to take me away from you
There's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do
I bless the rains down in Africa
Gonna take some time to do the things we never had

The wild dogs cry out in the night
As they grow restless, longing for some solitary company
I know that I must do what's right
As sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the Serengeti
I seek…
