The Top Ten
This is a great rock and roll song with the added benefit of a great guitar solo. Clearly their best song.
Peter Cetera and Terry Kath best moment together.Iconic 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.8 Comments

Peter Cetera the best singer of all time
Peter Cetera vocals and writing need I say more7 Comments
Peter Cetera is all anyone needs
25 or 6 to 4 is my favorite, but this has got to be second best!
I loved this song! It was perfect!4 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?
This song is the number 1 how come is in the 17th?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...
The classic sound of Chicago
This is one the best songs I've ever heard, amazing tune!
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?3 Comments
# 1 no contest
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.3 Comments
There is something unique about this song. It makes you feel so good. It's just brilliant.
No one can match the voice of Peter Cetera!
Don Barnes/38 Special does a great cover of this song - Jukeboxhero
Major pick me up song. A real feel good3 Comments
Chicago: Does anybody really know what time it is?
Me: 25 or 6 to 4 - scienceLover10
Magnificent metals, should be higher on the list!
So Slow, yet so powerful!
First and Best Chicago Song I ever heard, Brings back the memories
Best song ever!
Best of the Best
Gotta be number 1. An oldie but a goodie.6 Comments
The most beautiful song from Chicago.
This song should easily be in the top 3.
Before Peter cetera got cheezy.
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.2 Comments
Just incredible! So amazing! The songwriting, the arrangement, the vocals... perfect!
One of the greatest power ballads ever!
Catchy n one of their best songs with hard to say I'm sorry
Best song Chicago has ever done - Liam31idents2 Comments
Greatest Chicago's song. Most underrated song ever.
You know who its for
My favorite Chicago song, followed by Hard Habit to Break. Great band.
Should be top 101 Comment
Their best song ever,
Perhaps my favorite Chicago song (along with Saturday in the Park).
This is a beautiful and upbeat song. I get shivers whenever I listen to it
Best slow dance song ever.
Great, classic slow song.
Best make out song ever!
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.
Amazing underrated song
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.
Peter Cetera, what a voice
Such great voice range
That's all there is to say
Great song, should be much higher.
Amazing. One of my top 3 Chicago songs along with Feelin' Stronger and 25 or 6 to 4.
Love this song
Terry Kath doesn’t stop in this! Rip the best
Haunting simplicity of a perfectly constructed classic rock song, around a familiar theme - the angst of the heart.
Love the rhythm of this song and Jason does an awesome job! One of my favorites!
A good one from the early days.
Brings back such happy memories. Love the melody of the chorus line.
I can't believe this song isn't on the list..
Fantastic song, for many reasons. Fun to play drums to.
Fantastic upbeat song! This HAS to be up on the list!
Great uplifting Chicago song.
