Ten Top Toto Songs

Since its formation, Toto has been defined by two things: their simplistic guitar-driven sound, and their popularity as a classic Americana band. The band has gone on to sell over four hundred studio albums, and countless live ones as well. And though most of the members now live in different parts of the world, they remain close friends and remain signed to Virgin Records. This article covers some of the enduringly popular Toto songs.


“Irene” (LP, 1978) This album features the hit “Blue Rose.” It also features the track “Irene,” which is about growing up in California. The album reached #1 in the United States in early 1978. The song’s title is taken from the opera “The Nutcracker” by Peter Sellars. “Irene” contains the first verse sung by Sellars, and the second verse sung by the entire orchestra.

“Haitian Divorce” (album, 1980) Toto played an entire concert encore with this track. It’s about the late Frank Sinatra. This album also featured “Blue Rose,” which features a duet between singer/songwriter Robert Flowers and guitarist John Lennon. Robert Plant is also on this album. “Irene” is a great showcase for Robert Plant’s amazing guitar skills, which had dramatically improved by this point.

“Iris” (LP, 1984) Here is Toto at their supercharged glam rock height. This album includes the hit “Irene.” It features a duet between George Harrison and Paul McCartney. This is also the band’s first appearance on “That’s All Right,” a legendary British single. All these factors combine to make “Iris” a massive hit.

“Bodhisattva” (LP, 1986) Another wonderful artist in the world of pop/rock/ classical/folk genre, Toto’s third album, “Bodhisattva” offers another masterpiece of a song. With a jangly rhythm and a gorgeous harmonies, this song has been known as one of the greatest masterpieces. Also, on this album, comes a track with heavy metal lyrics. It is “Reelin’ in the Years.” The first verse is, “So you think you’re somebody special/ somebody who should be alone / somebody who should be held accountable / you’ve got a long ways to go to / till you understand the meaning of loyalty.”

“Bodhisattva” was Toto’s first album to feature the double-neck guitar. A popular practice at the time, it was first used on this album to provide an additional melody. The song was later used as the B side for George Harrison’s song, “My Sweet Lord.” This guitar technique became extremely popular in the folk music circles.

Knowing the Poker Rules


Knowing the Poker Rules

Poker is a family of casino games where players place their bets over which hand the player is best depending on the rules of the game. If we refer to the rules of poker, it can be said Poker is divided into two major subsets: American and European. The most popular version of poker is Texas Holdem. This is the version of poker where all of the cards are laid out from the beginning down to the flop face in a straight line. There are five players in a game of poker, two from each table.

In the first round of betting, the second player reveals his cards and the first player bets, with the pot being raised above the initial bet by the dealer. The dealer then calls, and the first player must call before the second player has the chance to raise his bet again. If the first player calls, the second player has to fold or raise his bet before the second round of betting can start. After the second round of betting, each player has the right to call, raise or fold his bet, and the dealer calls the final bet of the final round.

After the initial round of betting, each player gets four cards from the pot and aces, kings, queens, and jacks. After dealing out the cards, the dealer puts up a sign, telling the players that the initial round of betting has ended. At this point, everyone has equal chances of winning the pot because the cards that come out of the pack are the same. So, based on the cards dealt, the highest ranked hand wins the pot odds are changed to give each player an equal chance of winning the pot.

If no player ends with the highest ranked hand wins the pot, the players all split the money. Then, the pot is split among the five players who came in at the same time and they take turns paying out their respective bets. The first player to end with the highest paid out bet wins the pot. This continues until there are no more bets left in the pot. In Hold’em poker, it is important to know when to fold, raise or bet.

When you play poker, you need to have an understanding about when to fold, increase your stakes or put your money in the pot. In Hold’em poker, there are certain betting rules such as having the highest ranked hand to win the pot. The reason for this rule is to prevent everyone from betting the same amount of money. The only exception to this rule is if a player has no outs, which means he has kept his cards but no real money on the table. In Hold’em poker, a player does not have to stay in the same hand forever; if a player has an excellent hand, he may have an opportunity to act, but then he must stick to his bet or else he will lose the pot.

The final table in the poker tournament is known as the Flush Table. All the players at a poker table, starting with the blinds dealer, face each other and deal the cards from the deck face down. After that, the dealer reveals all the cards, face up except for one and the rest will have to be dealt out from the deck. The last person standing is the winner.
