Many of us are aware, and muchly fond, of the musical interlude by Toto which is referred to by the moniker Africa. It is beloved by many.


Traversty, then, that the somewhat popular hippity hop gentleman going by the name of 'Pitbull' should chance across said tune and decide to offer his own somewhat restyled take on the classic.


It fails to delight.

Oh dear - like Fugees version of Killing Me Softly by Roberta Flak. Should go to prison for such an offense!

Oh my, not good. Sounds very tinny and definitely not a patch on the original!

My ears bled when Scissor Sisters covered Comfortably Numb. 


Offenses against great music should be chargeable.

He's pumped it up and added a Latino vibe. Smiley LOL

The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars but in ourselves.

That is a truly horrible version of the song. The world would be a lot better if that didn't exist.

 Absolute murder of a great tune .....


It should be punishable by being made to work on the x factor alongside Cowell the Muppet .


Although the worst one I heard was over the holiday ..Chris Dr burgh's A spaceman came travelling ,was poorly turned into an Irish folk ditty and killed in the process .
