List Rules Vote for your favorite Chicago songs, not just singles and hits.

List of the best Chicago songs, ranked by fans like you. After first finding success in the late-'60s, this best-selling soft rock outfit went on to have decades of staying-power. They differentiated themselves from their peers by relying heavily on horn arrangements. This list includes every major Chicago single, from "If You Leave Me Now" to "25 or 6 to 4," but true fans know there are other great songs to vote on besides the radio hits. Music videos and lyric videos are included next to each song name, so if you haven't heard a track you can listen to it right here on this page.

If the order of this list bothers you, then stand up and do something about it by creating your own version and re-ranking it. Simply click the "Rerank List" button and you can put the songs in whatever order you like.
