Toto is an American pop band founded in 1977 in Los Angeles. The band’s present line up now includes Steve Lukather, David Bowie, and Joseph Williams, plus numerous touring musicians, such as Robert Plant, John Pierce, Robert Plant, John Paul Jones, and Warren Ham. Although Toto only have a few hits to their name, they have become well known for their unique and powerful musical styles. Some of the most popular Toto songs are; “Love is in the air,” “I’m in Love,” “Haitian Divorce” and “Wake Your Mind Up.”
In their Tin Man album, Toto featured many diverse musical talents. Among the various talents which made up the Tin Man band were vocalist/singer David Bowie and guitarists Roger Daltrey and Paul McCartney. In the following years, Toto made quite an impression with their hit song “Haitian Divorce” which reached No. 1 in the United Kingdom and No. 1 in the U.S. “Wake Your Mind Up” was another major hit which featured David Bowie.
Although Toto gained popularity in the United States, their biggest achievement so far came in the form of their film “Titanic.” The movie won eight Academy Awards including Best Picture. The following year, Toto released “Haitian Divorce” which was a sequel to their earlier film. “Waltz For Venus” was the last movie from the original band. “Haitian Divorce” was directed by Steven Spielberg and featured George Clooney, Tim Burton, and Jack Nicholson.
When the original Toto came to the United States, they were greeted enthusiastically by audiences, much to the delight of their fans who expected a big hit. The group’s music and songs just did not sound like traditional pop or rock, but there was something wonderfully peculiar about Toto that attracted audiences. Some people called them strange, but other people simply enjoyed their unique style.
Toto is best known for scoring movies such as “Llama” and “Coraline.” In addition, Toto has also written songs for many Hollywood movies. An example of this is the song “Don’t Worry, Be Happy,” from the 1984 movie “psycho.” Another Toto classic is “I Remember You.”
In addition to popular music, Toto also has released some piano music. One of these is a piano version of “Fur Elise” by Joanna Newsom. There are also several Toto piano versions of “Goodbye, Farewell” by Johnny Jenkins. Whatever you choose, whether you are a fan of Toto or not, I hope you will enjoy my article.
