I'll be missing my 40th high school reunion, with some regrets. According to Laura, who kindly has followed the Facebook chatter, there has been some discussion of what music for the playlist. Chicago has come up. So, I'm playing Chicago II, their breakthrough album, on Spotify right now. God they sucked even worse than I remember. Still, it's wonderful to think that, here in America, what sounded like a middling high school jazz band could become the biggest pop act in the country. "Colour My World"... Why the Brit spelling? Why did our girlfriends all swoon to a major seventh chord and a cheesy flute solo? Ah, memories!
