Africa – Cover

Here is Nick Hermann again, this time playing and singing the hit made famous in 1981 by the group Toto. Every time I see one of Nick’s videos, I’m impressed. I’m really not all that easily impressed, so this is saying a lot. In this video, Nick does a good job on the vocals, but he is even better with the arrangement of musical instrumentation. This isn’t an easy song to play, yet he comes very close to the sound Toto was known for.

Here are the words to this song:

I hear the drums echoing tonight

But she hears only whispers of some quiet conversation

She’s coming in, 12:30 flight

Her moonlit wings reflect the stars that guide me towards salvation

I stopped an old man along the way

Hoping to find some old forgotten words or ancient melodies

He turned to me as if to say

“Hurry boy, it’s waiting there for you”

It’s gonna take a lot to drag me away from you

There’s nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do

I bless the rains down in Africa

Gonna take some time to do the things we never had

The wild dogs cry out in the night

As they grow restless longing for some solitary company

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

It’s gonna take a lot to drag me away from you

There’s nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do

I bless the rains down in Africa

Gonna take some time to do the things we never had
