A Music Blog (#2: 25 or 6 to Awesome)

Blah blah previous entry for more stuff about this

This blog entry is fair warning that I'll frequently pick old music. Frequently. (Gasp!) But I don't care because it's got a lot of great stuff!

As an example, the next song is one called 25 or 6 to 4, by Chicago. If that title is confusing, just think of that along the lines of time; twenty-five or (twenty-)six minutes to four.


Alternate link!
Live version! Shorter (whole verse skipped) but you can see a ~*sparkly*~ guitar. (It's blue!) Also worth listening to imo.

Lyrics!
Spoiler:

Waiting for the break of day
Searching for something to say
Flashing lights against the sky
Giving up I close my eyes
Sitting cross-legged on the floor
25 or 6 to 4

Staring blindly into space
Getting up to splash my face
Wanting just to stay awake
Wondering how much I can take
Should I try to do some more
25 or 6 to 4

Feeling like I ought to sleep
Spinning room is sinking deep
Searching for something to say
Waiting for the break of day
25 or 6 to 4
25 or 6 to 4

Highlights - that guitar solo at around two minutes. Get some headphones, turn up the volume and just listen to that. The brass is pretty neat to listen to as well.

The lyrics are quite likely about the songwriter unable to sleep early in the morning while trying to write song lyrics. I say likely because if you google about there's the claim that it's about drugs. The songwriter said it wasn't about drugs, so people said him saying it wasn't about drugs clearly means it must be about drugs, but in the end, who cares? It's a good song. =p

Next entry!

    That was good. I liked the jazz-esque quality to it as well as the chorus. The guitar solo is pretty nice too. It has a nice old-fashioned feel to it.
