IT'S GONNA TAKE ALOT TO DRAG ME AWAY FROM YOU
I always of Toto's Africa as more of a melancholy break up song than the actual love song that it is. Something about the longing in the singer's voice and the distance he sings about makes me so much sadder than the actual love reunion he's looking forward to, which is why I used to close lots of my sets with it.
Luckily, the brilliance that is the South Rakkas Crew has given it a little more beat, a little more pep and stripped it of all its original emotion, for better or worse.
