With yet another cool cover working its way onto YouTube this week, we decided to take a look back at a few of our favorites.

Mike Tompkins created this a cappella version with nothing but singing and mouth sounds, which is why it caught our eye:
Toto – Africa – A CAPPELLA COVER

ICYMI, a few weeks back, Rivers Cuomo and Weezer released their own, and very faithful, cover of the tune:
Weezer – Africa

One of our all time favorites is this gem of Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard, who posted a celebration of their trip to Africa in 2016:
Dax and Kristen do Africa (music video)

The song was written by the band’s keyboardist and vocalist David Paich and the band’s drummer, Jeff Porcaro. And if you are like us, you hear the drums echoing tonight. Maybe you grow restless, longing for some solitary company? Well then. This video help all of us understand:

And of course, it all comes back to the original, which hit Number 1 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1983.
