Feelin’ like some Chicago

The horror! Somehow, as I realized yesterday, neither my iTunes library nor my CD collection contains a single track of Chicago. Admittedly, I was never a huge follower, but there are many songs they produced that I like.

So now, I’m trying to make up my mind whether to go for a big list of singles on the iTunes Music Store, or just go nuts and buy several full albums.

Here’s my list of tracks I definitely want. I’d welcome anyone’s input on others that were popular that I should check out.

  1. Baby, What a Big Surprise
  2. Colour My World
  3. Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?
  4. Feelin’ Stronger Every Day
  5. Hard Habit to Break
  6. Hard To Say I’m Sorry
  7. I Don’t Wanna Live Without Your Love
  8. If You Leave Me Now
  9. Just You ‘n Me (I’m on the fence about this one)
  10. Look Away
  11. Love Me Tomorrow
  12. Old Days (I’m on the fence about this one)
  13. Saturday In the Park
  14. Stay the Night
  15. Stone of Sisyphus (Maybe not as popular as past tracks, but it was recently released and I liked it, so I’m buying this one.)
  16. What Kind of Man Would I Be?
  17. Will You Still Love Me
  18. You’re the Inspiration

While I’m at it, what’s the best Peter Cetera stuff? I already have The Next Time I Fall and After All. I want Glory of Love, but it doesn’t seem to be in the iTunes database. :-(

Update 1: Michael Tsai informs me that Chicago 17 is “solid,” and that if I don’t buy the entire album, at least get Only You and Remember the Feeling.

Update 2: Turns out that The Very Best of Chicago – Only the Beginning is $11.99 and the individual tracks listed above would cost more, and they’re all in the Best of album—except for the two Michael suggested. Maybe those two were hits as well, but I never really knew them growing up, so I’ll stick to just the compilation album—and a single of Stone of Sisyphus just because I really like its sound.
