Default Favourite Jeff Porcaro track

My favourite Jeff Porcaro must be 99 by Toto, as ever he makes the groove so smooth, here is my attempt http://www.youtube.com/my_videos?o=U
What is your favourite Porcaro track and why .Regards Toni

AFTER Buddy, Jeff Porcaro is my favorite drummer of all time!!! i couldn't even begin to pick a "best of" or "favorite" tune he played on. too many, not only with TOTO, but with others that were so great.

i did have the pleasure of seeing Jeff with TOTO way back in 1980. wish i could have seen them a couple more time.

99 was one of the first songs I learned to play on the drums in 1981. Hold the line is my favorite Toto track, followed by Rosanna and Africa.

Your Gold Teeth II by Steely Dan is the only one I can think of where he cuts loose. Killer drumming.

Georgy Porgy is another example of his signature single hand 16th notes on the high hat.
Or how about 'When A Man Loves A Woman" by Michael Bolton. Killer fill.
