Default Old Days - Chicago

Old days
Good times I remember
Fun days
Filled with simple pleasures
Drive-in movies
Comic books and blue jeans
Howdy Doody
Baseball cards and birthdays
Take me back
To the world gone away
Memories
Seem like yesterday

Peter Cetera refused to sing the song at concerts very quickly because he said the lyrics were too corny. Horn player Jim Pankow wrote it.

That lyric is wrong. I am virtually certain it's filled with simple pleasures. The internet has lots of wrong lyrics.

Pretty sure you're right Peter.

Peter Cetera, no he never sang any corny songs.

I read somewhere that he particularly hated the Howdy Doody part.

What's pretty amazing about the clip (from a Dick Clark's Rockin' New Years Eve) is that they are really playing, and sound great. Not like America Bandstand or Soul Train, which had some of the word lip synching ever done. I wonder how many bands today would do something this live on TV. Very very few.

Chicago is sickly talented with so many awesome songs that are exponentially better because of all of the horn work included!! But now I'm annoyed as crap that Cetera thinks poorly of that tune. What a beautifully poignant childhood memory that Pankow wrote, and Peter Cetera sings it so believably. You would've thought he was expressing his own recollections of his youth. Oh well.

Peter Cetera didn't attend the ceremony when Chicago was inducted in the Rock & Roll HOF, must be some hard feelings there.

Apparently Cetera had no problem singing corny songs that HE wrote.

Recently found a documentary on Chicago on Netflix. Early days stuff. Was not the highest production value doc I've ever seen but was excellent.

It's like that Malcolm Gladwell book where he discussed the Beatles. How did those guys get so freaking good? They played nonstop for years. That's how.

I'm not a big Chicago fan, mainly because of the later fluff put out by Cetera. The Netflix documentary is outstanding. I've seen them 3-4 times play at halftimes of Notre Dame games.

I never understood why Cetera sang such a high percentage of their material. Yes he was an excellent vocalist, but Lamm was too.
