Five on Friday Set 35

Posted: Friday, September 24, 2010 by Travis Cody in

I think this might be the latest I've ever left it to choose a Set.  Mr DVR handled the programs we were interested in last night, so we spent the evening with Mr iTunes.  Chicago was heavy in the random rotation, but it wasn't until Color My World spun up that I said, "DOH!"

So I offer Chicago for Set 35, including one of my all time favorite songs.  All it needed was a piano, a flute, a hint of percussion, and a simple lyric.

Color My World
written by James Pankow
released in 1970 and 1971 (as a B side both times)

As time goes on, I realize
Just what you mean to me
And now, now that you're near,
Promise your love
That I've waited to share
And dreams of our moments together
Color my world with hope of loving you

    Beginnings is my next favorite one after that.

  1. Right now, Black sabbath is playing while I check my google reader. That's a little ways off from chicago, I think! :)

    Got to see this group in person back in the late 60's or maybe it was the early 70's in Biloxi, MS. I always enjoyed their music!

  1. Have always loved Chicago Travis! :)

  1. Great set, Trav! Color My World was my brother's and sis-in-law's song. They asked me to sing it for their wedding. (Chicago was busy that day, I guess.) hey had some great tunes, didn't they?!! Thanks for the lift.
