Chicago (the band)

Saturday in the Park

1 Jul, 1972

Chicago releases Saturday in the Park as a single that reaches #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart, the band’s highest-charting single to date. It is written by Robert Lamm. James Pankow:

You know one of my — again, this is my personal thing — one of my MO’s, you might say, is to get out there every night and if I can play every note in that song, I don’t care if I’ve played it a million times, if I can make every note count, then before I know it the song is over. Because I’m so absorbed in playing that song perfectly that that becomes a challenge within the song.
