  4. If you're going to pick a song BY Chicago-- pick one BY Chicago that's actually ABOUT Chicago-- Take Me Back to Chicago off of their 11th album. The final Chicago album produced by James William Guercio and featuring the late Terry Kath on guitar/vocals.

    They've not been the same since. :-(
