Best Toto Songs

The Top Ten
1 Africa

This song is my go-to song. It is amazing. The vocals, instrumental, and live performance are just wow... they are amazing. This is Toto's best song, and it will never leave my top ten favorite songs list.

Not just the best Toto song. It's one of the best songs ever made. Amazing vocals, instrumental, and live performance.

Best song from Toto! Love the lyrics. It never gets old! It's hard to believe it is almost 35 years old! It just has the same feel today!

2 Hold the Line

Africa may be a brilliant masterpiece, but Hold the Line became forgotten by the majority of the Internet. It's my favorite Toto song, period. Just listening to that iconic guitar riff is enough to send you the thought that you are in a rough town with bikers.

Truly magnificent track. Great combination of guitar and timing with Bobby at his very best. Africa is an iconic song, but Hold the Line has more elements, more buildup, and rhythm.

My God... This isn't the most well-known song, but why isn't this masterpiece in the top ten? Listen to the guitar riff, and you will know what I mean.

3 Rosanna

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.

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

Such a fun song that is instrumentally incredible. Great groove, and the piano/guitar solo jam at the end is next level.

4 Stop Loving You

I think after the commercial failure of "Fahrenheit," Toto decided to go back to their roots with their next studio album. It's basically what people call a sequel to Toto IV or, as some say, a clone of that album. I agree with the former because it sounds like an original project, and this song does it perfectly, keeping up with the Casio synth sounds of the late 80s.

It's probably my fourth favorite Toto album, and it's kind of sad that this is their last classic Columbia release.

5 I Won't Hold You Back

This is the best soft rock ballad from the band, in my opinion. It takes itself seriously, and the band's harmonies on the chorus and at the end just make the whole thing better.

This album came out the same year as "Chicago 16," where another power ballad, "Hard to Say I'm Sorry," became popular on the charts. This song is not my favorite Toto song of all time, but it's up there.

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

6 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.

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

7 Make Believe

Takes me back to being a teenager. This band has it all: the best vocals and 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!

The heart of Vice City: Emotion 98.3.

8 I'll Be Over You

No, this isn't my favorite song off Fahrenheit. That honor would go to "Can't Stand It Any Longer," which should be on here somewhere. You have Joseph Williams giving his all with the vocals, percussion from Africa making its presence felt, and modern-sounding synths, even by 80s Toto standards.

Coming from the guy who would go on to provide the singing voice for adult Simba in The Lion King, that's saying something.

Even though Fahrenheit is one of Toto's least well-received albums, this song is somber in a perfect way, almost sounding like a tribal funeral march in some parts, with the drums from Africa returning.

I always think of this song when I get to a certain tear-jerking part of a video game.

9 I'll Supply the Love

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

This should be number ONE. Excellent change-ups. I don't have it on my Best Of CD. Move it up.

10 Stranger in Town

Really moody, atmospheric song. Unlike anything else they've done. Great clip with a pre-Chucky Brad Dourif too.

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

The Contenders
11 99

One of Toto's very best. It came out 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.

This is top 10. No idea why "I Will Remember" didn't even make your list.

12 Love Has the Power
13 I Will Remember

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

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

An underrated song that is my dad's favorite Toto song.

14 Only the Children

This should've been the first single from the seventh 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 "Pamela," which sounded too much like "Can't Stop Loving You." The band wanted to do more than ballads!

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

15 Lovers In the Night
16 Pamela
17 Mushanga

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

18 Holyanna
19 Lea

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

The best song and my favorite song of Toto! This song is so perfect and lovely.

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

20 On the Run

Best song of Toto, in my opinion, because it gives you so much energy when you're listening to On the Run. Steve is on fire with his vocals and guitar skills. Jeff, Joe, and Steve Porcaro give a dynamic boost to the song.

You have to watch the video of this song to hear how good they can perform on stage.

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!

21 Could This Be Love

One of the best songs ever written. Perfect combination of vocals and music.

22 Don't Chain My Heart

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

23 Afraid of Love

This is a great rock song. I like everything about this, and the beginning is just amazing!

24 Child's Anthem

First song of the first album. This intro of I'll Supply the Love has a perfect combination of piano and guitar.
