This is pretty cool.   Try closing your eyes and listening, then watch it. :-D

Very neat, Robo, although after two weeks of rain (literally!!) I don't want to hear it again for a few days!  :-P  Only kidding!  I love groups that make their own music with no instruments!

that was good.  thanks!
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

It sounded like people clicking their fingers and sure enough it was. Did I miss something?

I guess I can't escape the rain today. ;)
 I took my kids to the amusment park several towns away to celebrate their birthdays with friends and the sky literally opened up and it poured hard, you couldn't even see in front of your face.
They gave us tickets for our next visit, but still a bummer for their birthday party. Of course we get home and its clear skies, the neighors said it never rained here. :-x

However, I thought that video was amazing! It was very realistic.
They really did an amazing job on that. I usually don't even like that song but I did like this version of it.
Come on Mick, close your eyes and open your mind, I know you will hear the rain. ;)

I guess if they do a few more shows they'll finally be able to buy those instruments they've been drooling over in the catalogs.
be happy and make others happy.

It's an African song from the Rain Forest areas of the Congo and other large rivers in central Africa.  I forget it's name.  My daughter, the music teacher to be, knew the song as soon as I said snapping fingers.  She's preformed it a number of times, ths 1st time I heard this song was when she was a sophmore in high school and had won a trip to the state music convention/workshop.  She won a trip to either state or regional (WA, OR, & ID), done in alternating years all four years of HS.
It is, of course, a song about the sounds of falling rain, and what it does.
Life is a school.  What have you learned?   :brian:      The greatest danger to our society is apathy, vote in every election!

The song is "Africa" by Toto (1982).

Toto - Africa Lyrics

I hear the drums echoing tonight
But she hears only whispers of some quiet conversation
She's coming in the 12:30 flight
The 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

The wild dogs cry out in the night
As they grow restless longing for some solitary company
I know that I must do what's right
Sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the Serengeti

I seek to cure what's deep inside
Frightened of this thing that I've become

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

Hurry boy, she'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, I bless the rains down in Africa
I bless the rains down in Africa, I bless the rains down in Africa
I bless the rains down in Africa
Gonna take some time to do the things we never had
