I'm sure you've all heard this song, even if you haven't posted it.  But I want to.  Partly because, of course, I have a story to go with this.

When I was in high school, the first friend I met was this kid named Matt, and we got like a house on fire.  There were always these gold  records hanging on the wall in his house and it was Nashville so I never really thought about it, but one day I asked what they were for.  "Oh, my dad was in a band called Toto, he did this song 'Africa.'"

So once this new cover came out and became a meme sensation, part of my brain keeps imagining Matt's dad going "...why am I getting all these royalty checks all of a sudden?"

Weezer - Rosanna

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J8jr-p0lQZo

Really cool story. Yeah, I watched the performance the other day and I like their version of Africa. Also dig their cover or Rosanna too. So, who is Matt's father in the band? I want to know!

An actual rock band performed "Dayman" from "Always Sunny" (couldn't find a thread for it) and it's awesome.

I listened to this song so. man. f*cking. times. tonight.


I actually need to run it through Audacity, that abrupt ending is really annoying me.  Going to have it repeat and fade out, like a real song.

Turn around is fair play. Toto does a great job with Hashpipe.

Steve Perry - No Erasin'

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oawl9e-tFVM

Perry is back from a self-imposed 20 year hiatus.  I think the song is good...he sounds good. But I don't expect there to be any songs on the forthcoming album where we 'hear' vintage Perry hitting anything close to those high notes he is synonymous for. Like I said, this song is good for what it is and exactly what I expected. Will I check out the album when it drops? Yep.

Weezer- Africa (Official Music Video)


So many levels of meta going on here.  They're covering a song by another band, with a video recreating one of their own music videos, with another singer impersonating their lead singer.  I love that.

Ha! That's awesome. Did you also catch that they shot it in 4:3 to represent the original video aspect ratio? BTW, how the f*ck is it that Al never ages?

RATT and Marvin Gaye - “I Heard it Round and Round the Grapevine”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=57SNPbxi0r0

Okay, this is about the coolest sh*t I've ever heard! It's nuts how Marvin's vocals are locked in so perfectly with Round and Round.

Lou Gramm - I Want To Know What Love Is @Gathering On The Green - Mequon, WI - 7/14/2018

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1thQuFkuVmE


I've been listening to Foreigner for years and some of Lou's early solo work when he left the band. But I haven't seen any recent footage of Lou in probably 20 years if not longer. So, seeing this video just now, he is practically unrecognizable from what I remember him looking like all those years ago.

Def Leppard - Personal Jesus

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6YBC3ZVo7R0


I haven't really heard much of anything from Def Leppard since the Sparkle Lounge back in 2008. That's a long ass time. This cover of Depeche Mode's "Personal Jesus" is better than I thought it would be. It's understated by Def Leppard standards, which I'm fine with.
