Wishing You Were Here (4:36)

"Wishing You Were Here" is a mellow AM radio style song written by Peter Cetera for the 1974 album Chicago VII. Main vocals provided by the late Terry Kath, (but strangely not credited as such on the original album pressing) with Cetera leading the bridge. Fascinating point of interest in this tune are the smooth backing harmonies provided by three members of The Beach Boys-Carl Wilson, Dennis Wilson and Al Jardine.

  • Haunting, in a good way <3
  • Well, they had an enormous following in their time. Now? Eh...I think this was the first album I actually bought,,,Chicago Transit Authority, WOW. What a sound. Even the Beach Boys contributed on this cut...Terry Kath shot himself and Walter Parazader quit. But they left behind some cool tunes...this is one of them.
  • This, no doubt, a cult band will delight more than one generation.
  • Why do you still haunt me???
  • soon to be in Cincinnati with REO
  • Great
  • sad & lovely...one of my favorite Chicago songs
  • Only one word : GREAT band :)))))))))))
  • Just have to think of a certain woman, sit back, listen to this to get the tears flowing.
  • Memories of my childhood..
