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

  1. It was a fave back in the '80s...still is a wonderful piece of Toto music live! Wonderful ensemble cast of musicians! Enjoy...

  12. 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. 
  13. I didn't think the original singer was still with the band. he sounds good. I was shocked. 
  14. What if Lindsey Buckingham and Steve Lukather traded places between Toto and Fleetwood Mac, would we notice any difference?
  15. yeah
  16. So whos the lead singer the fat guy or the guy who looks like hes from csi Miami
  17. Brilliant!
  18. I have no idea whether there is a track here or not. I'm not a huge Toto fan. But almost all musicians wear in ear headphones on stage in a large arena to hear the other musicians, especially drummers who are behind everyone else.
  19. You think he looks like Christian Bale??
  20. Same here. I think Tony Spinner is doing the high notes in this one.
  21. Separate they are great musicians...together phenomenal!
