Best Chicago Songs

Which song by this amazing band do you think deserves the top spot?

The Top Ten

If You Leave Me Now If You Leave Me Now Cover Art

25 or 6 to 4 is the best but this song deserves a lot more recognition

This song should be number 1 or number 2 on this list

This along with Stairway to Heaven by Led Zeppelin are the only to legendary songs.

Really? What about comfortably numb, bohemian rhapsody, smells like teen spirit, november rain, livin' on a prayer? - Ankon

Peter Cetera vocals and writing need I say more

25 or 6 to 4 25 or 6 to 4 Cover Art

This is a great rock and roll song with the added benefit of a great guitar solo. Clearly their best song.

Been to over 300 concerts over 40 years, always fans go crazy waiting for the encore...25 or 6 to 4!

Number 1, this is the best Chicago song, one of my all time favorite songs.

Just too good!

25 or 6 to 4 is my favorite, but this has got to be second best!

Best Chicago song.

I loved this song! It was perfect!

Peter Cetera is all anyone needs

Hard to Say I'm Sorry Hard to Say I'm Sorry Cover Art

I cannot believe this song isn't on the list this is their best song by a longshot!

I gave it a vote just so I could say YUK, stupid, vapid lyrics...

This Song is the number one of band, Why so below position?

This song is the number 1 how come is in the 17th?

Look Away Look Away Cover Art

I love this song it always brings me back to my high school love. We tried to stay friends but as it goes after high school we lose touch and then he found someone. It hurt for a while but 33 years later we have reconnected and I am happy to say he will always be my first love and my best friend...

First and Best Chicago Song I ever heard, Brings back the memories

Gotta be number 1. An oldie but a goodie.

This is Chicago's best song, way to low on this list

Absolutely a classic. Should have been #1.

Saturday in the Park Saturday in the Park Cover Art

How is this song not in at least the top 5?! It's an amazing song ahead of its time very modern sounding but at the same time a classic!

How can anything from the good old jazz-fusion era not be #1, especially this ode to good times in the summertime?

Happy day song! Always lifts my mood to fun times.

This is one the best songs I've ever heard, amazing tune!

Make Me Smile Make Me Smile Cover Art

Love the ending climax and has to be at least #2 no question. What a combination of harmonic vocals, and crashing horns and percussion...Damn this is so good.

If someone came to me and asked, "what was the big deal about Chicago? ," I'd refer them to this song. I almost can't believe a human composed this. It's truly remarkable.

Absolutely Chicago's best all time hit. Kath was completely remarkable on vocals and guitar.

The best quintessential Chicago: vocals, horns and lyrics (and of course Kath).

Feelin' Stronger Every Day Feelin' Stronger Every Day Cover Art

There is something unique about this song. It makes you feel so good. It's just brilliant.

Major pick me up song. A real feel good

Great all-around, toe-tapping tune.

Don Barnes/38 Special does a great cover of this song

(I've Been) Searchin' So Long (I've Been) Searchin' So Long Cover Art

This song deserves to be WAY at the top of this list. This song and melody are one of rock's all-time greats--way better than their later stuff that was too sweet or just boring or dumb lyrics.

Extremely catchy. The bass line is so pretty, and the song rocks up at the end.

The most beautiful song from Chicago.

Such a meaningful and thought provoking song.

The Contenders

Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is? Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is? Cover Art

Chicago: Does anybody really know what time it is?
Me: 25 or 6 to 4

Magnificent metals, should be higher on the list!

Terrific song

Stay the Night Stay the Night Cover Art

So Slow, yet so powerful!

Hard Habit to Break Hard Habit to Break Cover Art

Just incredible! So amazing! The songwriting, the arrangement, the vocals... perfect!

Best song Chicago has ever done

Best in my opinion

One of the greatest power ballads ever!

Will You Still Love Me? Will You Still Love Me? Cover Art

Greatest Chicago's song. Most underrated song ever.

My favorite Chicago song, followed by Hard Habit to Break. Great band.

You know who its for

The trademark song of Jason Scheff... a great love song

Just You N' Me Just You N' Me Cover Art

Perhaps my favorite Chicago song (along with Saturday in the Park).

Their best song ever,

What Kind of Man Would I Be? What Kind of Man Would I Be? Cover Art

This is a beautiful and upbeat song. I get shivers whenever I listen to it

Colour My World Colour My World Cover Art

The song "Colour My World" was my young late husband's & my favort song. We were 19 & 20 @ that time. He was shot & killed by a stranger 9 months later. With that being said, "Colour My World" by Chicago still remains my favorite song.

Great, classic slow song.

Best slow dance song ever.

Best make out song ever!

Dialogue Parts 1 & 2 Dialogue Parts 1 & 2 Cover Art

This is a very important song, musically and socially. Nothing demonstrates more vividly the danger of being uninformed.

Even though 25 or 6 to 4 is my favorite song of all time, I'm adding this because it's too awesome to not be included.

My favorite song as a senior in high school in 1975. The 70's were amazing years and for music too. I always remember good times when I hear this song. Thank you Chicago for never retiring.
