    I hear the drums echoing tonight
    But she hears only whispers of some quiet conversation
    She's coming in twelve-thirty flight
    Her moonlit wings reflect the stars that guide me towards salvation
    I stopped an old man along the way
    Hoping to find some old forgotten words or ancient melodies
    He turned to me as if to say: Hurry boy, it's waiting there for you
    It's gonna take a lot to drag me away from you
    There's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do
    I bless the rains down in Africa
    Gonna take some time to do the things we never had"

    Have always sort of found this song way to overpolished and kind of corny, but I have a serious question so if any major fans know the answer let me know. The verses and Chorus's were clearly recorded separately. The sound/vibes/levels are completely different. My question is did they record in different locations?? Cuz its aggressive how different the room tones are between the 2 parts

      @Daniel Shumway but like all the air in the verse is taken away come chorus where it also feels smaller?? I mean w.e they did worked but like it feels like they're going the opposite way.

    Well, it is a nice song to listen. BUT I always find western guys insincere about Africa aspecially when see this kind of songs. They started to enslaving African people, stealing their resources and future at early 17th and it continued since 1960s in America. Millions of people died because of you. %40 of your country is obese while dies in Africa because of hunger and ''blessing the rains down to Africa'' doesn't works just empty words. You are doing stupid things like #breedblack or making little mermaid black instead of taking responsibility and doing REAL things. You don't really want to actually. You just want to show yourself like and making kind of advertisement. Africa doesn't need your kind words and weird actions. Africa needs money,
    industry etc.

    I may have been born in 1993 but when the moment discovered this song whilst playing Scarface (the game) this song had that sick 80s vibe to it and peaked my interest ever since.
