So this was a thing on the internet: a campaign to get Weezer to cover that Toto song “Africa.” They finally agreed to do it, and released the cover today. The results are...unremarkable. (Rivers Cuomo sounds vaguely Pet Shop Boys-ish, is all I got out of the exercise, so you know it was produced within an inch of its life.)
I like when Weezer covers songs live and you get more of a sense of their silliness. Like this cover of a Coldplay song, where Rivers does all the Chris Martin airplane gestures:
Anyway, that’s all I’ve got.
(TRC, you should be weighing in on this.)
