Weezer’s cover of Toto’s “Africa” is the song we need, but the song we don’t deserve. In a world where rock is loudly getting pushed to the side by Hip Hop and television pop stars (no offense) Weezer throws it back to a classic song that we didn’t realize we needed to hear.

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


Do what’s right and listen to this version. This is a great example of a cover done right.
