Pure art stuff
Yeah, I know that one, really good song. Drive probably had a better soundtrack than the movie ever was, argueably
Yep, stay safe fellow guru, keep the head up
Pity Alice has not met a good producer. But of course it can be that world needs no such voices.
Magical song, this type of song reminds me a part of a movie which is called: Hocus Pocus , by Sarah Jessica Parker
I really like magical songs ^^,
give the frontman a chance
I've always loved this song, but after watching this video it got 10x better.
Smoking performance, incredible solo from Terry
History of the track in comments
I love the story of the origin of this particular song...Chicago had just wrapped recording all of their songs for their second album- but one last one..they needed to record just one more song to complete the album but nobody had anything..they were trying and trying, sitting in the studio working on ideas for one more song but nothing was coming..As you can expect in 1969 the drugs were flowing and that even wasnt helping..Finally at a complete standstill, Peter Cetera simply asked the engineer in the booth 'what time is it'?..the engineer replied "its either 25 or 6 to four (am)!"..This just cracked everyone up at the time, because the engineer was so precise in his response- (25 OR 26 to 4).Shortly thereafter someone decided to write a song about THAT!..and the rest is certainly history for sure!...25 or 6 to 4 became Chicagos first song to reach top 5 in the US..it far outshadowed the other songs on the album..
The lyrics reflect exactly that moment in time-
Waiting for the break of day
Searching for something to say
Giving up i close my eyes
Sitting cross-legged on the floor
25 or 6 to 4.
Many of these hits I heard only in covers
