Hard habit to break: Name your top songs by Chicago in the '80s

6

April

Chicago
For years, '80s bands have toured through the mighty venues of Tampa Bay, sometimes taking time-out to chat about their legacy with Stuck in the '80s, but there's one that always escaped our grasp: Chicago.

Maybe because in their truest sense, they're not an '80s band. Hell, they formed the same year I was born. But until I heard Hard To Say I'm Sorry during the closing of the flick Summer Lovers, they never crept onto my radar.

Chicago returns to Tampa Bay on April 15, playing the venerable Mahaffey Theatre in St. Petersburg. But before the boys line up to play four decades of classics, one of the gang has to chat with Stuck in the '80s. That man is ... Robert Lamm, Chicago's keyboardist and one of its founding members.

We'll chat up Lamm about Chicago in our beloved decade and more. But we want to celebrate the occasion as well by letting the fans and listeners of Stuck in the '80s pick our podcast list this week: The Top 5 Chicago Songs of the '80s. Here's a full list of their singles below from that decade, but feel free to get clever and pick some deep album cuts. Leave your picks in the comments area and we'll release your top 5 list on the next podcast:

  • "Thunder And Lightning" 
  • "Song For You"
  • "Hard to Say I'm Sorry"
  • "Love Me Tomorrow"
  • "Stay the Night"
  • "Hard Habit to Break"
