2 Hold the Line

A song with all the elements to be a great song : guitar, beautiful voice, rhythm, piano,...

Unlike Africa, THIS is the song that best sumarizes what Toto is. Africa is excellent, brilliant! But has to be behind Hold The Line.

Their first single managed to be a great hit - MatrixGuy

Definitely above Africa.

Best song ever
I find it by listen some garage band in a park
My skin and the heart from all my body change when I listened it.
The only bad thing is that is so long

This song should be number two in my opinion. The piano and guitar are just awesome. The first time I heard it I fell in love with it. This song never gets old. The lyrics are so meaningful and amazing.

I still listen to this song and feels like I'm hearing it for the first time! Never gets old!

The drum beat is unique, one of the best I have ever heard

4 Stop Loving You

Bought it when it came out, still listening to it today. No more needs to be said...

By far the best "pop rock" song Toto has...great song to hear live. Joseph Williams vocals are amazing.

I'll never stop listening to this song! It never gets old. Such a feel good vibe

Its just the best song.

6 I Won't Hold You Back

Greatest ballad of all time. Luke's vocals and songwriting at their best. Always was ironic to have one of rock's greatest Axe Men singing a live song like this one.

Everything about this song is great! The lyrics and Steve's voice move my soul!

Absolutely a most beautiful love song! So deeply passionate and genuine! Voice and music a perfect10!

The magic formula of music found

7 Make Believe

The heart of vice city: emotion 98.3

Takes me back to being a teenager. This band has it all the best vocals, the best musicians. They just don't make music like this anymore.

Always loved this song. Made me feel like anything was possible. Great band!

8 Stranger in Town

Loved the video. I had this on 45 and played it over and over.

Great song they don't play many of their best songs live

9 I'll Supply the Love

It has a nice pop and rock beat to it that makes it a very good song to listen to. Definitely Toto all over this song.

10 Only the Children

This should've been the 1st single from the seventh one album, It shows what Toto sounds like live in concert, Plus it's got "Hit" written all over it! But the record company made them release "Pamala" which sounded too much like "Can't stop loving you", The band wanted to do more then ballads!

Actually a really great song. Why don't they play it on stage.

One of the best songs! Everyone should use it as their ringingsound as I do :-)) I love it!

The Contenders

11 Georgy Porgy

What to say, an excellent song, putting the emphasis on the wonderful rhythm section that characterized Toto from its inception. Possibly the funkiest, smoothest hit by the band.

The more funky side of toto!

They were better doing the blue eyed soul thing than the soft 80s pop rock thing. great tune.

A song that is very smooth and flowing. A song to defidently remember.

12 Pamela

I love the enthusiastic rhythm in this song

The begining of this song was brilliant

Number 5

13 Angela

This song is so beautiful. How is it only 30th? It should at least be in the top 10, probably in the top 5.

This song ends the awesome Toto (1) by rocking out.In fact the whole album rocks!

This song really rocks out...ending the awesome Toto(1) on a high note.

14 I Will Remember

This one should be in top ten, at least. Good text, great melody and arrangement, top production.

This should really by in the top 5. This and Lea should be pushed further up the ladder.

Should be in Top 10. Wonderful song

15 99

One of Toto's very best, it came on at the brink of the eighties to give Toto a leg up to "A" list status. The long version from the original album is the only one to listen to as the subtle nuances that made this song so great are all there.

I think 99 should be top 10 at least

This should be much higher!

Should be in top ten if not top 5

16 Lea

Love to a person is the great thing

This is my best song by toto

Absolutely beautiful song. I love SL's guitar in Lea and really wish it were less produced and simpler bringing out the guitar more! But, IL this song!

I think Lea is the best and number 1, Toto best song ever! Butz of Bayang, Lanao del Sur, Philippines.

17 Holyanna

What?!? This is number 1!

18 Mushanga

When I close my eyes and listen to this song, I feel totally relaxed. In my eyes Totos best song.

Simply great song, great album

19 Don't Chain My Heart

It's just a good song, because steve is singing it.
It's his song.

20 Gypsy Train

One of their best tunes of all time. I lve Luke's axe work along with Jeff's drms. Very cool.

21 Only You

How come so many songs of Toto are just hidden from people? There are so many of them that are truly masterpieces. - EdwardArtwood

Very addictive song can't stop playing it and singing along.

22 Child's Anthem
23 Afraid of Love
24 Falling in Between

This song is just flat out awesome, it is the heavy side of Toto. Also it was amazing when they played it live at Chastain Park Amphitheatre.

25 Hydra

The opening to what could have been a great prog concept album if they hadn't 'chickened out' after two tracks.

One of Toto's most Prog-Rock songs, Imagine a Metal version of Pink Floyd, Steve Lukather comes into his own on this classic, Even if it's a bit long it never feel's like it is, It takes you on this roller coaster ride! - michaeldouglaswright

26 English Eyes

Great song, great voice, great riff!

I agree, Toto when they rock

This is one of the best guitar riffs ever. I prefere Toto when they rock!

Toto:s best song from one of their best albums, Turn back.

27 St. George and the Dragon

Fantastic underrated song, great theme and melody plus brilliant guitar work. So glad it's going to be on the new live DVD.

28 Bottom of Your Soul
29 Wings of Time

Number 32? This is such an awesome song. It's actually quite hard to pick a best Toto song, but this deserves to be in the Top 10 at least. Just because this is associated so much with Jeff's death it deserves to be far up there. And then the instrumentals, Steve Lukather awesome as always, great lyrics and awesome guitar solo.
Our love doesn't end here, it lives forever on the wings of time...

30 Orphan
31 Straight for the Heart
32 Caught in the Balance
33 Home of the Brave

It's a great song and I have no idea why it's not even on this list.

Toto rocks out big time...a really uplifting patriotic song!

Hey! Whats this... Not Even on the top ten...
This must be one of their best live-songs...

34 All the Tears That Shine
35 Love Has the Power
36 The Other Side

Best song ever

One of my most favorite songs by toto of all time. Such hautingly great vocals by Luke

37 All Us Boys
38 Unknown Soldier (For Jeffrey)

A song from their latest album and for me the best from that album, such a great song. It is made for Jeff Pocaro (The original drummer in TOTO, died sadly in 1992) The start is so beautiful! Lukes singing is amazing

39 On the Run

This song is crazy good, It is a very difficult song to play on any instrument ( Believe me I would know). When I saw them live it was by far the best song that they played. Rock on Toto!

40 How Does It Feel

Such tenderness from Steve Lukather in his word of vocals. It should've been his hit for Toto after Stranger in Town.

41 Could This Be Love
42 I Think I Could Stand You Forever

Great song elements of seventies British Rock

43 Lorraine
44 A Thousand Years

Absolutely the best Toto song in my opinion. Weird and mystical!

Great tune

45 Good for You
46 White Sister

Monster track. Never get bored of listening to this and a killer Luke solo

47 Girl Goodbye

This song has such power. The lead vocalist pours his soul into that which is this song.

48 Takin' It Back
49 Lovers In the Night
