As sure as Kilimanjaro Rises…

by Hillary

Let’s make a list of things awesome and not awesome about this video.

I’ll go first.

Not awesome things

  1. Everyone’s hair
  2. Unbelievable plot line. Maybe they should have gone a more interpretive route…
  3. Tragic ending. I thought this song was about the beauty of Africa
  4. The way they try to stuff all these syllables into the line, “As sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the Serengeti”

Awesome things

  1. The keyboardist’s serious sweatband action and overall appearance
  2. The gong 1:33
  3. African instruments
  4. The way Bobby Kimball is looking for the book he needs at 2:53
  5. The stache at 2:16
  6. Quiet contimplation at 4:07
  7. 3:21
