In 1977, Boz Scaggs brought some songs to the hit parades. One of them was What Can I Say, which hit number 10 in the UK and number 42 in the US. Before recording this song, Boz had played in bands like Mother Earth and the Steve Miller Band (he knew Steve Miller from college). Because he was so good in the Steve Miller Band, he got a contract on Atlantic Records, and later Columbia Records, recorded several albums without success. When meeting the basis for what later would be Toto, he knew to score some hits, like the song of the day. Enjoy

Song of the day: Toto- Rosanna

In 1982, Toto released Toto IV, and the opening track was also released as single. The text was based on the many girls David Paich had known. For a time, the members of Toto said the song was about Rosanna Arquette, the love of Steve Porcaro at the time. The song did very well, making it to number 2 in the US (Eye Of The Tiger and Don’t You Want Me managed to keep it from the first place) and number 12 in the US. Enjoy
