Chicago's bass player Peter Cetera wrote this and sang lead. After it became a huge hit, the band became known for its ballads that featured Cetera's vocals and de-emphasized the horn section.
This won a Grammy for Best Pop Vocal Performance By a Duo, Group or Chorus and received Record of the Year.
In the UK, this was Chicago's only #1 hit.
This was the first Chicago single to feature an acoustic guitar lead. It was also their first #1 hit. (thanks, john - jacksonville, FL)
