Toto: There’s No Place Like Its African Home. There’s No Place Like Its African Home…
Just a reminder that Toto’s hit single “Africa” is still playing non-stop in a mysterious spot in the Namib Desert, which was the focus of a Jimmy’s Daily Planet blog post back on January 17 of this year.
Most “Throwback Thursdays” are considered timeless because of the subject’s nostalgic value. However, in this case, the everlasting staying power of Toto’s “Africa” is more literal than most in this category of beloved nostalgia.
Upon further thinking, would this specific blog post qualify as a “Music Ditty Miracle”? After all, its legacy is up there with other musical titans.
(Bonus points–well, six points and an extra one–for those who get the reference)
