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

  3. Amo essa música, nessa banda todos os integrantes eram de estudo, está explicado o talento musical único.
  4. wow the chorus sounds exactly like the original
  5. I think the mic stand is too high for the vocalist. Awkward.
  6. The components of *TOTO* have been some of best musicans and arrangers of the world in the 80/90 
  7. Maybe the best version of the song!
  8. the singer looks like John Goodman lol :)
  9. BUENAS Y FELICES NOCHES.....
  10. It was a fave back in the '80s...still is a wonderful piece of Toto music live! Wonderful ensemble cast of musicians! Enjoy...
  11. easily best live version ever...
  12. Wonderful band from the 80s Live in Concert, one of my favorites cranking the tune "Africa" up on the radio in the car, my new Renault LeCar as I drove down the Highway in the State of Montana heading, & just before turning north heading toward the Canadian/Alberta border on my way to visit my then "boyfriend" (he now lives in Texas) that lived in Calgary, AB, & I remember it had been a hot dusty summer day driving across Montana & southern Alberta.
  13. dedico esta ao RENATO! e ao seu baixista!
  14. Sounds EXACTLY the same in the chorus Either a sign of phenomenal singer or them using a back track
  15. 5 string bass guitar...odd?
  16. Ma quanto è BRAVO Luke?
  17. The lyric, lads, is "I bless the rains down in Africa".......now, cleanse your pubescent minds of that rot you've been thinking!
  18. love the song always will <3
  19. C'EST L'MOT" UN MAGNIFIQUE CASTING DE MUSICIENS"J'ADMIRE LEUR TALENT'!
  20. I'm not here to bash modern music, but this kind of passion is rarely seen today. The 70s and 80s were just those decades where you wanted to be alive just to experience this music in its natural surroundings.
