Chicago Adds Three More of Their Charting Topping Hits to Rock Band

by on October 19, 2012
 

Chicago is easily one of the most successful American rock acts of all time. On October 23rd, three of their hit singles come to the Rock Band Music Store.

Here is just a little proof of how great Chicago really is: Chicago was the leading US singles charting group during the 1970’s. Chicago has sold over 38 million units in the US, with 22 gold, 18 platinum, and 8 multi-platinum albums. Chicago also have five number-one albums and 21 top-ten singles to their credit.

Written as part of a seven part suite, Chicago’s “Make Me Smile,” which topped the charts at No. 9 in the US – from the band’s second studio record released in 1970, Chicago II. “Feelin’ Stronger Every Day,” off of 1973’s Chicago VI found equal success on the charts, only a few years later. This also brings the famous writing of Peter Cetera into the fold for the first time in this pack. The ballad “If You Leave Me Now,” off of 1976’s Chicago X, which showcases Cetera’s phenomenal voice, also reached No. 1 in the US and the UK and was the first # 1 hit for the band.

As a bonus, Rock Band Blitz players who play any of these tracks will earn double coins for each play.

I can’t wait till Tuesday, Chicago is one of my favorite All-Time Bands. Really happy to see more music from them in Rock Band after their popular hit “25 to 6 to 4” was an on disc track for RB 3.
