TOTO – To Po & Joe
TOTO is actually an American rock band founded in 1977 in Los Angeles, CA. The band is composed of Joseph Williams, Dave Paich, Michael Berryman, Steve Porcaro, and Steve Lukather. Their music can be heard all around the world and is considered as a major influence on bands like Black Sabbath, Black Label Society, and Styx.
This band has influenced many famous rock bands, but they have not been given their due. One reason for this is because of their “Americana” style of music. This style of music is made to sound authentic in the United States, so that people from other countries do not get the wrong idea about it. This style is also unique, as it makes use of different instruments, such as the harmonica, acoustic guitar, blues and rock piano, mandolin, and the banjo.
To tell you the truth, To Po and Joe are TOTO’s two most popular and well-liked songs. But there are several others that they have recorded. Their album “Prophecy” contains songs such as “Cirrus”, “Guitar,” “Waters Edge,” “Dirty Laundry”, “Waters Edge (Live)” and many more. Among their popular songs is “The Ballad of a Thin Man”, which is their only number one hit song. It is actually known that this song was inspired by a real incident where someone died while swimming in Lake Texoma. This song is not only about this tragedy but it is also about the loneliness and frustration of the person who died.
There is also the song “Mule Variations” by To Po. This song is a cover of a folk song and is about a man who die while on his mule ride. Another great song that they have written is “I Am the King of the Mountain”. This song describes a man who is trying to climb the mountain of love in order to achieve his true dream of becoming king of the mountains. Other popular songs from their discography include “Stairway to Heaven”, “Bodies”, “Faded,” and many more.
Because To Po is a rock group, they are often criticized for their lyrics and music. They have also received several lawsuits due to the many cases of their music being illegal in the country. They have sued people and organizations for playing their music in bars and other public places. Some of the lawsuits include K Records, which sold their music without getting their permission or paying royalties. In another lawsuit, the group was accused of having plagiarized other musicians, which resulted in a court case that went to court.
Overall, To Po and Joe are two great songs written by To Po. They both have great lyrics and are popular with both fans and critics alike.
