My inner turmoil that is Africa.

After Weezer's cover of Toto's Africa, I ended up liking it better than the original, but something wasn't exactly right. After listening to the two in one session, sometimes stopping and one and resuming the other, and picking up each section, I found that there were some parts I liked better about each version. I like the vocals better on Weezer's version, but I like some of the sound and instrument work better on Toto's version (I also like some parts of Weezer's version, but I found more parts of Toto's that I liked). This is has become a problem for me because I don't have a definitive version of Africa but instead multiple conflicting covers. (Surprisingly, the parts I like about each one don't overlap or conflict at all so there could be a mash-up made of the two versions, but I'm not good at mixing and editing.) What are your opinions on Africa and the new Weezer cover?
