25 or 6 to 4

Chicago

One of the most famous songs by the great rock and roll band Chicago is one called "25 or 6 to 4."  It was written by band member Robert Lamm, and is actually about having writer's block while trying to write a song, and that the writer's block occurred at about 3:34 or 3:35 am, or in other words 25 minutes or 26 minutes to 4 am.  Hmmm.  Who knew!!

Now it makes sense to me.

I always liked Chicago (the band, not the city!) And the band's music stands up VERY well. Ditto Canada's own LIGHTHOUSE. And Blood, Sweat and Tears were no slouches, either. The "horny bands" of the late 1960s-1970s are by and large all disbanded now. More's the pity!

I'm with you, my fellow OLD friend.

I loved the music of Lighthouse and BSW as well.

Rock on, Baby.
