#CLRW Staying with my Legends covering Legends thought I was reminded about this song last night. If I’m very honest I can’t believe that I had forgotten about it. And what kind of rock and roll fan would I be if I overlooked this band.
One of the most inventive and creative bands to come out of the 90’s and it’s always the first band I use to defend the long winded argument that there were no good bands to come out of the decade. We’ve seen them jam at Arnolds in one of the most memorable videos of all time but the one that has surpassed it in my mind for Weezer is the cover they did with Weird Al for Africa by Toto.
The song is no stranger to the occasional cover, even Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell made their own clever over the top take on it. The song is as timeless as the land it’s about and its temporary front man in the video. Here’s my choice for this week’s Classic Rock Wednesday, I’m the Listener and this is Africa.
