    the singer kinda sounds a little like Joe Cocker in this song! :lol: 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. :unsure:

    interesting, I never could get into Stevie Wonder. :shrug: 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.

    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.

    There's an unusual curve to my relationship with Rock/Pop music.

    When I was growing up and had no real control over what was on the stereo, my folks were all country all the time (and pre-Beatles rock).
    (one Christmas, I'd have been probably 12 or 13, we got one of those little turntables that came in a case and half a dozen albums including a Beach Boys GH but it wasn't current stuff)

    So in High School, I got to go to the skating rink some, both the public stuff and private parties - so I was thus introduced to a lot of disco/dance stuff (Don't Bring Me Down for example) and stuff like Bob Seger too, so from there (15,16 or so) it was all catching up on 70's (and late 60's) stuff as well as soaking up the glory of what was then current...until '88 or so.

    What happened? overdose of religion. For over a decade everything I listened to by choice was either Southern Gospel of "contemporary Christian" like Amy Grant or Stephen Curtis Chapman (which, to be fair, there was some good stuff mixed in there during that era)

    So once that phase passed, I had another big gap that had me constantly "discovering" something that actually came out ten years before or whatever (Kenny Wayne Shepard for example) but I still have this affinity for stuff that came out by the time I was 30 (even though I didn't hear it when released) and so there was this process of discovering, say, REM.

    I was still slow to pick up on 21st century stuff. My sons introduced me to some of the heavy stuff they liked (not all of which I liked, but some I did) like Disturbed and FFDP and a good friend of mine accidentally introduced me to Pink, stuff like that.

    ANYWAY, where I'm going with this is that you often hear people say "this group is so great" and you think "I'll check them out" and you're...not that impressed.
    But sometimes you are.

    So here I am admitting that it's only been in the last couple of months that I decided to investigate whether The Black Keys were all that they were cracked up to be.

    I have concluded that, yes, yes they are.
