Best Chicago SongsBKAllmighty Which song by this amazing band do you think deserves the top spot?
The Top Ten
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 - mneilan
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
Love this songV 6 Comments
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.
Much better song than top 2 listed, my second favorite Chicago tune
Peter Cetera and Terry Kath best moment together.Iconic songV 6 Comments
25 or 6 to 4 is my favorite, but this has got to be second best!
I loved this song! It was perfect!
Best Chicago song.
Any song is the best, as long as Peter Cetera sang it! He has a silky smooth, dreamy kind of voice! But, I’d say this one is my favorite, second being “Feeling Stronger Every Day”V 3 Comments
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?
Top 3 for sure!V 2 Comments
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...
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.
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.
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).V 2 Comments
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.
The classic sound of ChicagoV 3 Comments
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 - Jukeboxhero
Great rhythm...fantastic!V 1 Comment
Magnificent metals, should be higher on the list!
This is Chicago's best song, way to low on this list
Absolutely a classic. Should have been #1.
Gotta be number 1. An oldie but a goodie.
Anything from 80s not in top 10
this should be top 5
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.
Such a meaningful and thought provoking song.
Before Peter cetera got cheezy.V 1 Comment
My favorite Chicago song, followed by Hard Habit to Break. Great band.
You know who its for
Should be top 10
The trademark song of Jason Scheff... a great love song
Best song Chicago has ever done - Liam31idents
Best in my opinion
Should be top 10
Catchy n one of their best songs with hard to say I'm sorry
This is a beautiful and upbeat song. I get shivers whenever I listen to it
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.
Great, classic slow song.
Best slow dance song ever.
Best make out song ever!
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.
Amazing underrated song
Peter Cetera, what a voice
Such great voice range
Great song, should be much higher.
Haunting simplicity of a perfectly constructed classic rock song, around a familiar theme - the angst of the heart.
A good one from the early days.
Love this song
Terry Kath doesn’t stop in this! Rip the best
Fantastic upbeat song! This HAS to be up on the list!
Great uplifting Chicago song.
I can't believe this song isn't on the list..
