You're the Inspiration

Written By DAVID FOSTER and Peter Cetera

This song was written for Chicago 17, the album, and featured Peter Cetera singing lead in the original.  David Foster was working on a song for Kenny Rogers and called up Peter Cetera to see if he could help him.  Cetera was on his way to Italy that evening, and Foster rushed over to him and they spent 3 hours putting together the basics of this song.  Cetera fleshed it out while in Italy, and when he returned Kenny Rogers was no longer interested.  Hence. Cetera modified it to fit Chicago, his own band, and it became famous on "17."
