Brilliant, clever, or that I just enjoy hearing over and over.
As I’ve listened to songs, over the years, I always have found certain lines that just make the song for me. This is the first post that showcases some of those phrases that I thought were brilliant, clever, or that I just enjoy hearing over and over.
Chicago’s songs combine elements of classical music, jazz, R&B, and pop music. They were formed in Chicago, Illinois, in 1967. Chicago began writing politically charged rock music and later moved to a softer sound, generating several hit ballads. The group had a steady stream of hits throughout the 1970s and 1980s.

And I’m growing up to meet you down on velvet green

Up through the cracks, Up through the broken glass
In the hot red light of a black and white, Roses grow
I went with some friends from work to a restaurant in Sandy Springs, Georgia back in May of 1989 where 96 Rock was sponsoring a trivia contest. Our team won and we got a bunch of radio station swag and cassettes of the new album by a band I’d never heard of, Concrete Blonde. I have been a fan ever since that night.
