The lyrics of "Chicago" are a particularly striking aspect of the song, in Pitchfork's review of the album Illinois it was said that " "Chicago" cagily celebrates the innate (and deeply American) tendency to employ highways as escape routes, ditching old mistakes for new swatches of land, new plates of eggs, new parking lots."

    The horn section around 2.40 is so regal and majestic. The notes are brimming with emotion. It still brings tears to my eyes.

    I'm so glad I had the opportunity to listen to this while visiting Chicago. It filled me with wonderment I wouldn't otherwise had [2] Sooooooooooo, you're telling me that you didn't take a tour of Chicago's South Side while having this blasted out of your car which was then stopped and carjacked...

    I'm so glad I had the opportunity to listen to this while visiting Chicago. It filled me with wonderment I wouldn't otherwise had. Plus, this song is just beautiful and unmistakably emotional. I love the trumpet part best!
