Wazzuuuuuuup e'rybudday! Ceevro in da hiz-ouse!

...And I'll stop that now. I gotta say, though, this project was MASSIVE! I think we managed to push Step's processing power to the limit, and my own brain-processing power much, much past. All you crazy mix of unique artists really brought so much to the table here, I am truly humbled to be one of the voices, and a single guitar, buried somewhere in this mix. In fact, for the first time, I found myself not needing to provide a single thing after the initial framework!

I am completely awed and inspired by the teamwork shown putting this thing together. Once again, guys, you have all outdone yourselves!

For those of you wishing you had jumped onto the bandwagon while we were making this; Fear thee not! Ceevro's Singalong Collab #5 is currently up and running in the Audio Forum! This time around, we will be doing Give A Little Bit, by Supertramp! If you can sing and play, we want YOU!!! Come visit us!

yo this is ur boii S-Dawg aka Step keepin' it real and steppin' it up in dis shiznit, whats upppp.

This is a singalong cover of Toto's awesome song Africa, and a HUGE one at that. We have over 50 tracks, 22 of which are vocals. We've got everything from vocals and vocal harmonies to multiple guitars (including two bass guitars) to three drum kits.

Special shoutout to Sleeper256, who not only sent twelve vocal tracks, but even recorded percussion using everything but percussion instruments. He recorded pots, tupperware/storage boxes, and even oatmeal packets for shakers (which he aptly named Quaker Shakers).

Another special thanks goes to MetalRenard for the amazing master he pulled off! On my end, I was the one who did the syncing, tuning and general mixing to bring all the different parts together.

This was a huge amount of effort, work and passion from everyone involved, and my personal favourite singalong by a long shot. Enjoy!

LYRICS
I hear the drums echoing tonight
But she hears only whispers of some quiet conversation
She's coming in, 12:30 flight
The moonlit wings reflect the stars that guide me towards salvation
I stopped an old man along the way
Hoping to find some long forgotten words or ancient melodies
He turned to me as if to say, "Hurry boy, it's waiting there for you"

It's gonna take a lot to drag me away from you
There's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do
I bless the rains down in Africa
Gonna take some time to do the things we never had

The wild dogs cry out in the night
As they grow restless, longing for some solitary company
I know that I must do what's right
As sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the Serengeti
I seek to cure what's deep inside, frightened of this thing that I've become

It's gonna take a lot to drag me away from you
There's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do
I bless the rains down in Africa
Gonna take some time to do the things we never had

Hurry boy, she's waiting there for you

It's gonna take a lot to drag me away from you
There's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do
I bless the rains down in Africa
(I bless the rain)
I bless the rains down in Africa
(I bless the rain)
I bless the rains down in Africa
(I bless the rain)
I bless the rains down in Africa
(Yeah, I bless the rain)
I bless the rains down in Africa
(I bless the rain)
Gonna take some time to do the things we never had

I was blasted away as soon as it started playing! I thought it was just a literal copy of the original song that was uploaded, then I realized that it was a cover then after, it did sound a little different. Excellent work mind you!!

Ceevro responds:

Yeah, something really special happened there for a bit. We put out several singalong collabs, and they were loads of fun! Now, getting the rights to a song is difficult, so we can't do like we used to!

I am astonished at the amount of teamwork that was put in this song. This is a really good melody and it's different from the usual dubstep songs that cloud the Audio Portal.

Yeah, something special happened for a few months when we did these singalongs. I was so incredibly proud to be a part of them!

Maaaan we need to do this again, or just a smaller collab or some mini project. I need an excuse to sing more, I haven't done it enough lately.
This was such an awesome project, you really inspired us all, Ceevro.

Ceevro responds:

Yeah. Still waiting for Step to get the Under Pressure one done...I'm just not a good enough mixer to do it myself. Until that one comes out, I kinda feel like I let a bunch of hardworking people down. Like I got no cred, ya know?

My mind has no words for this.
My trar ducts are whispering to me now...
I wish I could give this a 6/5! The team did awesome!
Definitely one of your best! One of the few times I like lyrics in songs.

This is perhaps my favorite performance as well. This is really, and I say this having taken little part other than a backtrack, the very best that Newgrounds has to offer. I am proud as shit to have taken some small part.
