As sure as Kilimanjaro Rises…
Let’s make a list of things awesome and not awesome about this video.
I’ll go first.
Not awesome things
- Everyone’s hair
- Unbelievable plot line. Maybe they should have gone a more interpretive route…
- Tragic ending. I thought this song was about the beauty of Africa
- The way they try to stuff all these syllables into the line, “As sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the Serengeti”
- The keyboardist’s serious sweatband action and overall appearance
- The gong 1:33
- African instruments
- The way Bobby Kimball is looking for the book he needs at 2:53
- The stache at 2:16
