The world's greatest "Chicago" cover band is from Russia? I sh… er … kid you not...
the singer kinda sounds a little like Joe Cocker in this song! Yeah these guys are good, and it's Chicago in their prime, not love ballad Chicago. Well I wish them success while it lasts, because you know what they say: no matter how well you can do something, some Asian schoolkid can do it better. Okay except maybe backboard-shattering basketball layups, but I'm sure one is working on that as we speak.
interesting, I never could get into Stevie Wonder. I've tried, believe me. I respect his talent but he just doesn't do it for me.
They do love ballads too. You've never heard of Yao Ming?
not what I meant. I meant the band Chicago is better when they play high-energy songs versus sappy love ballads.
I didn't become a Chicago fan until I shot a couple of their shows (along with Earth Wind and Fire--excellent concerts) because when I started getting into music they'd moved into the David Foster/Peter Cetera wussy sound, which didn't appeal to me at all as a teenage kid.
Here's one that sort of bridges the gap between the hard edged stuff and the wussified era. The song was written by Chicago's original drummer Danny Seraphine, who was fired in 1990. Get a load of this solo from legendary trumpeter Arturo Sandoval!
Earth Wind & Fire for the win! They're great - extremely versatile with the funk/pop/soul sound.
Well, if you insist....
Was watching a movie a few days ago, and this was playing during one of the scenes. I've probably heard it before then, but can't remember if I have it not, but I really like listening to it.
And it was in a movie I'd least likely expect to have been in, The Strangers: Prey at Night.
'member this movie?
