Toto formed as a group of six of the most sought-after studio musicians of the 1970s. Prior to the band's formation in 1977, the members of Toto were regulars on albums by the likes of Steely Dan[3], Seals and Crofts, Boz Scaggs, Sonny and Cher, and many others, contributing to many of the most popular records of the 1970s. Keyboardist David Paich rose to fame after having co-written and produced Boz Scaggs' Silk Degrees album. Having played on many sessions with drummer Jeff Porcaro, the two began to seriously discuss the possibility of forming their own band. They brought in bassist David Hungate, having played with him on the road with Boz Scaggs. In addition, the duo asked guitarist Steve Lukather, Jeff Porcaro's brother Steve Porcaro (keyboards), and vocalist Bobby Kimball to join the team. And in 1977, production began on the band's first album.

Nat King Cole

Nat King Cole is one of the best black singers ever. One of the most beautiful songs ever written.
My wife and I were married on June 21 200o. This was our wedding song that we danced together for our first time as husband and wife.
I think that attractive point lyrically is that the song can be sung to a lover, parent, child, sibiling or a best friend. It's the ultimate "love" song.

Dont stop the music

The 20th Century saw a revolution in music listening as the radio gained popularity worldwide and new media and technologies were developed to record, capture, reproduce and distribute music. The focus of art music in the 20th was characterized by exploration.
Claude Debussy has become well-known and respected for his orientation towards colors and depictions in his compositional style. John Cage Arnold Schoenberg, and Igor Stravinsky,were all deeply influential composers in 20th century art music. Jazz music evolved and became a significant genre of music over the course of the 20th century, and during the second half of that century, rock did the same.
