Some Chicago bands for TTT week 70

in Music2 months ago


Today is Tuesday, the day of #ttt or #threetunetuesday to share some music on Hive, discover new rhythms and songs and listen to some oldies. After the days we spent in Bogota, we are back home to our routine but with the nest empty, and my son is already settled in Chicago.

Yesterday, he sent me a picture of the city that you see above. It was the first time he had the chance to go downtown. So this morning, seeing the picture, I thought about sharing some tunes from some Chicago rock bands.

But before we get into the tunes, let me give a little background for those of you who are not familiar with #threetunetuesday. In the words of @ablaze, who started the initiative

The jist is as follows
Every Tuesday I'm going to share 3 songs which I like to listen to and I invite your feedback in the comments below. Better still, why not have a blast of your own Three Tune Tuesday and mention me in the post and I'll come and find the post and upvote it. If you could also use #ttt or #threetunetuesday tags that would be great. It'll be a sweet way for us all to discover new music. You'll also be in with a chance of winning the prize - more on that later.

You can find out more at ablaze's post for this Tuesday with his recommendations for this week, the #70.

And without further ado, let's go with the tunes.

Tune 1 - Chicago - Saturday in the Park

The first band is named after the city of Chicago. When they came out in the late 60s, their name was Chicago Transit Authority, as was the title of their first album. But they had some legal issues with the city's transit authority CTA because of the name, and they ended shortened it.

In the early eighties, I used to listen to them a lot since I loved Hard to Say I'm Sorry, but the song I have chosen for the #ttt is a song from the 70s from their fifth album, released in 1972 that I think is one of those songs that makes you feel happy when you listen to it, Saturday in the Park.

The band is still active today.

Tune 2 - Survivor - Eye Of The Tiger

The next band, Survivor, emerged in the city of Chicago in the late 70s, but their stardom came in the early 80s when their song Eye of the Tiger was a smash hit in the movie Rocky III.

Tune 3 - The Smashing Pumpkins - 1979

To close, a song by the alternative rock band The Smashing Pumpkins that came out of Chicago in the late 80s.

My favorite song of theirs is 1979, which was released in 1996.

This is all for today.

Thank you very much for reading!

Enjoy the music, enjoy life!

Was never a Chicago fan and I'd turn the radio off if Eye Of the Tiger came on haha - but I used to LOVE Smashing Pumpkins! Haven't really listened to them for years though.

Haha! !LOLZ

I was never a big fan of any of the three. But I used to love some of their songs, especially from the Smashing Pumpkins ;)

I used to be addicted to soap.
But I'm clean now.

Loving the theme and I learned something too... I never knew that the Smashing Pumpkins were from Chicago. Great shout on a song too, what a song and what an album..

Chicago saturday in the park new on me and really enjoyed it and then of course eye of the tiger, an absolute classic!

Hi! I'm glad you liked it :)

Great selection, I love the Smashing Pumpkins tune! It is around the time I finished school, but I didnt like them at the time! wo is me. The Chicago tune Hard To Say Im Sorry is such a classic too!

I love that song by The Smashing Pumpkins although I don't like all of their songs to tell the truth and never been a big fan, 1979 is a cool tune. Thank you for stopping by :)

Well I know all three songs Super Eli, but never knew the bands were from Chicago. I never really thought about Chicago being from Chicago, I guess I am used to geographical band names not being from there they are named Texas Berlin etc..
Great tunes to rock the Hive to!

Jeje, bueno ahora lo sabes Super Ed!! ;)


es verdad Super Eli!

Morning morning Super Ed. Have a magic Wednesday 🌀😄

Good afternoon well good morning for you Super Eli 🌀😄🌀

Hola hola! 🌀
How's your Wednesday going, Super Ed?

Hola Hola Super Eli 🌀😄🌀
Wednesday has been good, I finally got a pinmapple post done, and starting two LEO posts ... JIT will be tested this week! hpud is saturday as well!

These three bands are great, excellent selection. All in their own style were great. Of the three songs shared I really like the one by The Smashing Pumpkins; although of the three bands I love Chicago, and there is one song by The Suvivor that moves me to the floor, and that is "The Search is Over". I liked this #ttt you shared today @coquicoin. Cheers.

Hola!! 1979 is also my favorite of the three. And you are right, The Search Over is a moving the floor song.
Thank you for stopping by, saludos :)

De veras que es una excelente canción. Saludos para tí también.

I love Chicago!!! Absolutely the city of the music and the windy city, because it's really cold there! Great time I spent there 😍
Saludos amiga, espero que tú hijo disfrute de Chi-town.

I've never been to Chicago, amiga. I hope to one day :)
My son is thrilled with the City. He has gone to study on a scholarship. Let's see what he says now that the cold weather is starting ;) Happy day 😄🤗

Well after the cold season the summer will arrive again and being there with good weather is awesome really, a lot of things to do, we will enjoy a lot!!! Hope you can go too!

Yay! 🤗

I was sad when I read "empty nest", I know that it is a great change for you that your son is not at home now, but it is the path of his success and it will be good for him. They say it's very nice in Chicago. Excellent music choice. I'm a Rocky's fan 😀, so Eye of the tiger is my favorite, but I'm also a fan of alternative rock music. 😊

That's right, I miss him a lot but I am very happy for him. He is very happy with the university, so I can't help but feel grateful for the opportunity he has, although I am counting the days until December when he will come on holiday, hehe ;)🤗

Awesome tunes sis! I !LUV listening to the Eye of the Tiger sometime ago hehe.

I'm glad you liked these tunes, sis :)

I do amiga :) Nice to listen to different beats from time to time.

Eye of the tiger - I remember that coming out in the charts - great song. I love the video, its so badly done. The bit where they are walking down the street is hilarious ! One of them does not know quite when to come in and gets it quite wrong - love it !
