On Friday, we asked you: What’s the best song about Chicago? Tell us why. Here’s what some of you said…
“‘Saturday in the Park’ by Chicago. We no longer live in Chicago, but hearing this song just brings me back to the Lakeshore and Grant Park. It just always brings me ‘home.’” — Sandy Reilly
“‘Lake Shore Drive’ by Aliotta Haynes Jeremiah, we heard it play during breakfast at a diner in Vancouver when one of the locals walked in wearing a White Sox cap, and it felt like we could walked outside and be under the ‘L.’” — Jonathan Justus
“‘Lake Shore Drive,’ by Aliotta Haynes Jeremiah. There are many good Chicago songs, but this one has always grabbed me the most.” — Frank Collins
“‘Lake Shore Drive!’ It needs no reasoning. It’s just a great song!” — Elizabeth Creamer Leon
“‘Calling Me Home, Chicago’ by Lee Montgomery. For those of us who have moved away, it tears at our heartstrings. My runner-up would be ‘Lincoln Park Pirates’ by Steve Goodman because it’s so much fun.” — Amy Jackson
“‘Sweet Home Chicago.’ I moved from California back to Chicago so it fit perfectly. Actually the best song about Chicago is any song that reminds you of what an amazing city Chicago is.” — Jennifer Weed
“‘My Kind of Town’ by [Frank] Sinatra — describes the city well and Frank sings it!” — George Nakis
“‘Take Me Back To Chicago’ by Chicago, just lets me reminisce about warm summer breezes, street corners and Tastee Freeze like the lyrics say.” — Dan Pawlowski
