Halloo, Pseu and folks!

Weezer covered this????!!!!
  12:12pm melinda:

I love that someone covered Africa
Avatar 12:12pm Roberto:

Weezer! Wowza.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:13pm Mister Dobalina:

Oh my! Cover or no cover.
Avatar 12:13pm northguineahills:

@melinda: Me too, I love Toto for some odd reason.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:13pm Panda Penguin:

I wondered whether Africa By Toto By Weezer was going to get an airing this afternoon. Pseu, you're still the best thing about this Tuesday, even on the Tuesday when this cover was unleashed on the public.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:13pm Jim H:

The earwormiest earworm evah!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:14pm maestroso:

Why does this song give me chills? Why??
  12:15pm Ted:

Well that strangely worked!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:17pm Phillippe Bastille:

Hey Pseu and fellow hookers
  12:18pm melinda:

I get Weezer and Ween confused.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:20pm Hughie Considine:

The fear of an acute all-day earworm led me to tune out during Africa. I know myself.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:26pm I am the Upsetter:

I detest both Weezer and Toto but that cover was alright!
Avatar 12:27pm Jeff Moore:

Did anyone else hear some melodic part of that Azalia Snali and hear the chorus of Rancid's Time Bomb, think a cover of that was in progress?

No? Just me?
  12:27pm JakeGould:

I like Toto.
  12:27pm JakeGould:

@Jeff: You might be suffering an aneurysm.
Avatar 12:28pm Jeff Moore:

It's now weird to hear Africa with no shittyflute, but those Weezers did a pretty nice respectful cover.
  12:29pm Websie:

I was singing my own parody of this Dodgy song the other day1 "My life is effed for the summer..."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:30pm Hughie Considine:

In a yoga class I heard a version of "Africa" with traditional African instrumentation: it was absolutely obscene.
  12:31pm JakeGould:

Pseu, play some Christopher Cross at some point to blow these hipster’s minds.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:31pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Now I'm going to look for a cover of "Hold the Line." I wonder if Juliana Hatfield has one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:34pm Panda Penguin:

This Duncan Browne track is great, but it sort of reminds me of a seventies version of Kirk Van Houten's deathless classic "Can I Borrow A Feeling?"
Avatar 12:40pm northguineahills:

Jaja, Panda Penguin!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:40pm Jeezy:

I know it's a crazy request but many months ago you posted a video of The Smithereens doing very early track, "Some Other Guy," (not to be confused with the Beatles cover, which they also did.) and I can't find it ANYWHERE!
Any clue how to find it?! Thanks from a loyal follower!

I enjoyed that mic break

I miss The La's
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:07pm Mister Dobalina:

Oh gosh.
  1:07pm JakeGould:

@Jeezy: You positive it’s not this one? youtu.be...
Avatar 1:08pm ᏠЄႶႶỊѺµЄ:

Greetings everyone. Driving around Pasadena this weekend, I saw a silver Honda CRV with a "I♥ WFMU" license plate. I tried to catch up to him but couldn't. So happy to see FMU love on the West Coast.
  1:09pm JakeGould:

@Jeezy: Or this one? youtu.be...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:13pm Ken From Hyde Park:

That Honda has been in rotation in the main page GIF assortment lately. www.wfmu.org... Might have to click the right-arrow on the home page a couple of times to get to it.
Avatar 1:13pm ᏠЄႶႶỊѺµЄ:

@ken from hyde park - I saw it in person!
Avatar 1:14pm ᏠЄႶႶỊѺµЄ:

I did manage to get a photo of it too, but not nearly as good as that one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:15pm Phillippe Bastille:

Need to follow this with Cass McCombs "Dream Come True Girl"...
  1:16pm JakeGould:

Phew! One person in California listens to WFMU!
Avatar 1:17pm Pseu Braun:

Jeezy I know the video, it was a private one only meant to be up for a short time, so it got pulled. (not in my collection)
  1:17pm middlebun:

  1:18pm JakeGould:

MiddleBun? You in California?
  1:18pm middlebun:

Pasadena in fact
Avatar 1:20pm Dominick:

Been coercing Pandora back into the box
Avatar 1:21pm ᏠЄႶႶỊѺµЄ:

@middlebun - was that your car?
I'm in San Diego but was up in Pasadena this past weekend as a vendor at the LA Zine Fest.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:22pm People Like Us:

there's an image on the front page of a I heart WFMU car plate: wfmu.org...
Avatar 1:22pm ᏠЄႶႶỊѺµЄ:

I did have a guy stop me in San Diego because I was wearing a WFMU shirt. He was a New Jersey transplant.
  1:22pm middlebun:

Car is nearly invisible 97 honda of nondescript color. Probably not.

oh sorry Ken from Hyde Park, see you linked to it too!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:25pm Carmichael:

Heya Pseu and hookeroos. @Jake, lots of us in California are listeners.

Hello from here to you, Pseu
Avatar 1:31pm Davee:

Hello Pseu!
  1:34pm melinda:

I saw a person in a WFMU t shirt for the first time here in Maine last week. I already knew of some local listeners but it was fun seeing the shirt.
Avatar 1:36pm Roberto:

Wow, a Left Banke tribute song!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:37pm Barney Grubbs:

I occasionally get a nod around Pasadena when I visit my folks & wear a shirt. (Actually, probably happens more frequently there than at home on long island)
  1:37pm KP in DC:

What is this issue with the La’s and analog? I searched, cannot find. Thanks
Avatar 1:39pm Wild Neil||Peace All:

This reminds me of Eric Burdon and War due to its extremely freeform vocals and also Rage Against the Machine. Also African music in its chorus. Cool! Parquet Courts.

This Chemical Brothers with the lady vocalist sounds a bit like Cowboy Junkies in her delivery.

Knew there was Dead in the air...nice version.

  2:02pm KP in DC:

Will do, Pseu!

Is this the big box store where you work, Pseu?

finish my day with tobin sprout. that will be just fine. thanks for the psoundtrack to my afternoon, pseu.
Avatar 2:55pm Pseu Braun:

Thanks, everyone!
  1:55pm marygidge:

Some teenage girl made it her mission to get Weezer to cover Africa. maybe a young woman. Anyway, she hassled them on twitter, and they covered some other toto song first (i think) to tease her, then finally covered Africa. you all probably know this by now, but if not... that's the reason this cover came seemingly out of the blue.
