They went on to epitomise the classic American pop/rock sound of the 80's and 90's with hit albums and singles including Hold The Line, Africa, I Won't Hold You Back and the multi-Grammy winning Rosanna. Live In Amsterdam was recorded in front of a fanatical crowd in 2003 during the world tour in support of their album "Through The Looking Glass". The set includes all their hits, tracks from that album together with live favourites. This track is from the full concert DVD "Live in Amsterdam", available now from Eagle Vision. 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 old forgotten words or ancient melodies He turned to me as if to say, Hurry boy, It's waiting there for you CHORUS: 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 have 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 to cure what's deep inside, frightened of this thing that I've become CHORUS (Instrumental break) Hurry boy, she'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, I bless the rains down in Africa I bless the rains down in Africa, I bless the rains down in Africa I bless the rains down in Africa Gonna take some time to do the things we never have

  2. Good to see that Christian Bale is back playing bass with them again.
  3. Simon Phillips' feel in this song is so freaking tight. I love that snare sound he's got going, most amazing pop since Stewart Copeland! His fills are brilliant and very African-tribal sounding, which this song is obviously going for. I love his taste. 
  4. The Drummer and bass player are just superb,he's a gun that drummer.
  5. The end of this song reminds me of Incubus.
  6. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
