The band Chicago, originally Chicago Transit Authority, is known for its heavenly horn section and scintillating harmonies. While this song was originally released in 1969, it wasn't until it was re-released in 1971 that it became a chart-topper. It perfectly captures the moving rhythm of a city on a balmy summer day.
A feel good song about the freshness of a new relationship, every note is one of pure joy. It's evocative of summer, love, beginnings, tenacity. Much like the city of Chicago itself, the song has an evolving pulse that makes you love it more and more as it progresses.
