Lately, I’ve been listening to Chicago, and I focused on what I think was their biggest hit: 25 or 6 to 4. I was always curious about the meaning of the song’s title, so I Googled it and this is what I found: While sharing a house on Sunset strip, LA, with a bunch of hippies, Robert Lamm, who sang and played keyboards for Chicago, was trying to write a song and was in deep concentration, being awake into the wee hours of the morning. When he noticed that the time was 3:35 a.m. or was it 3:36 a.m. Lamm wasn’t sure. So, you see, if it was 3:35, then it would be 25 minutes to 4:00 a.m., But if it were 3:34 then it would be 26 minutes to 4:00 a.m. So, it’s either 25 or ‘6 to four. Pretty neat. Ha.
