Weezer Covers Toto Song But Not The One Fans Wanted
RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:
Good morning. I'm Rachel Martin. Don't tell Weezer what to do. For over a year, fans have been trying to get the band to cover "Africa" by Toto. There was a hashtag and everything. Well, Weezer did decide to cover a Toto song but went with "Rosanna" instead.
(SOUNDBITE OF SONG, "ROSANNA")
WEEZER: (Singing) All I want to do when I wake up in the morning is see your eyes. Rosanna, Rosanna.
MARTIN: #WeezerCoverAfrica may be disappointed, but seriously, how do you cover perfection?
(SOUNDBITE OF SONG, "AFRICA")
TOTO: (Singing) It's going to take a lot to take me away from you.
