Forget Da Bears. How about Da Band?

22

January

Chicago The city of Chicago is celebrating the return of the Bears to the Super Bowl in a couple weeks. (Last time there? In the 80s of course!) And we here at Stuck in the 80s are celebrating the return of the band Chicago to the touring circuit.

A spring tour by Chicago begins Feb. 3 in Anaheim, Calif., and wraps up May 16 in Las Vegas. (A stop here in Tampa Bay is set for Feb. 8 at Clearwater's Ruth Eckerd Hall.)

Now before you pigeon-hole this band as a 70s act -- thus subjecting it to endless scorn on this blog -- consider that Chicago landed more than a dozen songs on the charts in the 80s, including seven in the Top 10. They also remain one of the handful of bands that has stayed together -- in one lineup or another -- since their inception back in 1967.

Surely that feat is worthy of a top 5 list.

Top 5 Chicago tunes from the 1980s:
5. Stay The Night (1984) | Listen
4. Will You Still Love Me? (1986) | Listen
3. Look Away (1988) | Listen
2. Along Comes A Woman (1985) | Listen
1. Hard to Say I'm Sorry (1982) | Listen
