No idea who's covering it but i'm a fan of the original and it's a pretty good cover.....actually, I should confess to having a larger than is socially acceptable soft rock 7" collection, and I don't mean the good stuff, i'm talking Cutting Crew, Whitesnake, Foreigner. I'm a sucker for a big overblown soft rock ballad.....


BTW, anyone else having trouble getting on the Boxstr website?? My Safari is not opening it

I think it's cheating to switch vocalists for the high parts...

CaroleBristol said...

Quite weird, no idea who it is though, but the voices seem strangely familiar.

ToffeeBoy said...

Sounds a bit like The Decemberists?

Blimpy said...

um, i didn't really mean for this post to be a guessing game, more a means to foist toto upon ye unsuspectingly - in what must be an especially long-running (and tired) gag by now....

Shoey said...

The Toto gag has plenty of life left yet. The band, on the other hand.....

Blimpy said...

did you know the drummer from toto died in a bizarre lawnmower incident. TRUE FACT!

ToffeeBoy said...

blimpy - I have to know more, and I have two questions for you:

1. Was it an incident involving a bizarre lawnmower or a bizarre incident involving a lawnmower? There is a difference...

2. Who the fuck are the mystery band??????

Shoey said...

Was it a music lover/landscaper?

Blimpy said...

1. On August 5, 1992, Jeff Porcaro suffered an allergic reaction due to a pesticide he was using in his garden whilst mowing his lawn. He died a horrible horrible death. On his lawn.

2. Hmmmmmm?

ToffeeBoy said...

Blimpy said...

Yes. Yes it is.
