Toto's "Georgy Porgy"

so i put the record on mostly as a joke. wanted to do a little rockin out to "Hold the Line" and i hear "Georgy Porgy" and i shit you not, it's one of my new favorite songs. i was listening to it a few times a day for a while and now at least once a week. it's got that wonderful 70s blue eyed soul sound that i love (haulin' oats, todd rundgren, etc). and then i read a bit abou them and found out they were the studio band on Boz Scaggs' "Silk Degrees" album and it completely made sense.

am i alone here?

I pulled out my tape of the first Toto album a few months ago, which I hadn't attempted listening to in over 10 years, and this one particular song did surprise me as being better than I remember. "Hold The Line" is cool too, although I didn't enjoy most of the rest.

same album, everybody please stand up and cheer right now for the pop-rock classic "i'll supply the love."

Good track on a good album. But their great great great album is the *second* one, *Hydra*. Trust me, and invest $1 in a copy sometime.

Cheryl Lynn is on this track, no?

Toto IV is nice... around the same time they were working on "Thriller."

This is almost Steely.

I prefer the version by Charme with Luther on vox, but the original is awesome too.

best part of this song has to be the very steely-esque "badabadabababa" breakdown.

the copy i have always made the needle skip around during this *crucial* moment in the track until i learned about the vinyl-healing wonders of windex + microfiber cloth
