TOTO is one of the greatest bands of all time. Their lyrics aren’t that mind blowing, but who cares. TOTO is basically a supergroup made up of L.A.s finest studio musicians from the 70s and 80s.

I could go on forever about TOTO. Their drummer Jeff Porcaro, is one of my favorite all time drummers. He plays with perfect time but grooves so perfectly.

Jeff P is famous for the groove on the song ‘Rosanna’, which is this amazing shuffle that he largely assembled with big chunks of Bernard Purdie ingredients. The synth solo on this song is amazing and perfect. The Guitar solo after the synth solo is amazing and perfect. The outro goes into a bluesy shuffle thing. So bad!

The video is so wonderfully horrible. Here it is:

    Okay, I literally laughed out loud. I haven’t heard this song in AGES but it is still oh-so familiar. I think ‘wonderfully horrible’ captures this video in all of its glory.
