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.
- Baby, What a Big Surprise
- Colour My World
- Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?
- Feelin’ Stronger Every Day
- Hard Habit to Break
- Hard To Say I’m Sorry
- I Don’t Wanna Live Without Your Love
- If You Leave Me Now
- Just You ‘n Me (I’m on the fence about this one)
- Look Away
- Love Me Tomorrow
- Old Days (I’m on the fence about this one)
- Saturday In the Park
- Stay the Night
- 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.)
- What Kind of Man Would I Be?
- Will You Still Love Me
- 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.
