Another memorable 80s rock memory from Jefito:
"... Rosanna, a song so completely pervasive that it seemed to overtake entire station playlists. Jeff Porcaros drumwork notwithstanding, "Rosanna is a song (and video) that, to this day, I cant even think about without gritting my teeth. Im not a violent person, but if I could somehow punch Rosanna repeatedly in the stomach, I think I would.
I hate Rosanna. I hate it not only because its a ridiculous, insipid, craptastically awful ballad, and not only because its a poisonous earworm that I find myself humming against my will after inadvertently hearing it, but because it set the pattern for a big part of Totos future recording output.
Its true that theyd been naming lousy songs after women as far back as Toto (Angela), but they did it all the time after Rosanna was a hit. In fact, on 1988s The Seventh One, they did it twice! Its a foul, foul song."
Fantastic. 'xcept that I'm humming the damn song now.
