Chicago - Songs


Chicago is a pop-rock band that became famous in the 1970s. Formed in 1967 in Chicago, this band was first known as The Big Thing, then it changed its name to The Chicago Transit Authority and recorded its first album which was self-titled under that name. Led by bassist-vocalist Peter Cetera, the original lineup also consisted of Walter Parazaider (saxophone), Terry Kath (guitar), Danny Seraphine (drums), James Pankow (trombone), Lee Loughnane (trumpet) and Robert Lamm (keyboards). Over the years, there were many personnel changes, and Cetera left the band in 1985 to be replaced by Jason Scheff.

Chicago began as primarily a horn band playing edgy jazz-influenced rock, then switched to mostly soft romantic ballads in the mid-late 1970s. In 1969, Chicago debuted with "Questions 67 And 68" which was followed by a very long string of hits on both the Adult Contemporary and Pop/Rock charts to the late 1990s. Best known songs by Chicago include "25 Or 6 To 4" (1970), "If You Leave Me Now" (1976), "Hard To Say I'm Sorry" (1982), "You're The Inspiration" (1985), "Look Away" (1988), and "Here In My Heart" (1997).
