Happy We are getting Toto, wish it could have been a three pack with the two other big hits, but oh well. Rosanna will do! I remember watching the Weird Science movie awhile ago and I enjoy the song, I might buy it eventually. All in all, glad that another band on my sig got released before DLC ended!
U2 / ELP / Bruce S. / CSN / ELO / BTO / ZZ TOP / The Fray / Ted Nugent / Bob Seger & TSBB /The Eagles / Steppenwolf
And my 2 cents on the choice of song (assuming it was a choice) - "Rosanna" was the right call for Rock Band over "Africa" and "Hold The Line"... not because it's more popular (it's obviously not) but because it's the most interesting across all instruments.
Kudos to Pope and the whole HMX crew!
Thanks HMX (esp Pope) for Toto before the end.

I have a confession to make. I was once infatuated with "Rosanna." The song, not the girl.
Even now I can't exactly say why, but when the song was first released, it mesmerized me. If it came on the radio, I had to stop everything and listen. If I had my tape recorder with me (remember those?) I had to record it. I must have had at least three or four different mix tapes with "Rosanna" recorded off the radio. Even now, years later, the song holds a special place in my memory, for how it somehow, inexplicably grabbed hold of my attention and would not let go. Of course, I still like it even now, because it's quite simply a good song.
My heart also breaks that we didn't get a Toto three-pack. "Hold the Line" and "Africa" I bet were the other contenders. Of course the sappy-love-song addict in me would also have hoped for "I'll Be Over You" or "99" in some future Valentine's Day pack. But, what we have, I will buy, and I will cherish.
HMXHenry, thank you for confirming which version of "Weird Science" we're getting (buying that too!), but can we also get a run time on "Rosanna"? There are a couple of different versions floating around out there, one of which clips the jazzy outro. I hope we're getting the longer one!
I'm going to greatly miss these weekly announcements when DLC finally ends, but at least for this fan, this has been an awesome home stretch.
It's all right. Everything will work out fine.
It's all right. We're going to the end of the line!

Weird Science is one of my favorite songs of all time (and that version too!) Rosanna is awesome as well. Toto's greatest hits was the second CD I ever bought... back in the early 90's.
So two more weeks of new music? Is that right?
If I had to pick one from Toto, I would have wanted either Pamela or Rosanna. Pamela (though in my opinion the better song) was less popular so I'm not surprised. I'm glad it was Rosanna over the others, even Hold the Line.
Among the big songs coming to RBN from Ozone!!
I sense something cool coming soon. Look for an announcement before the end.
A definite get for the two, just to keep my rock historian status relevant. I agree that Elfman had many other good songs, but this sticks in the heads of the masses. It was even money for the three big songs for Toto, so I'm sure the pick was more logistics than popularity.
