Bad Music

80’s rock band Toto’s  “Africa“–a staple of Apartheid radio–is a bad piece of music which you can’t help humming to when it comes on. And more recently it’s been revived as R&B/dancehall or as “acapella jazz choir.”  In that context, check out humorist and short story writer Steve Almond‘s take on the song.
