I was on iHeartradio, (like Pandora). listening to an all 70's station, and soon enough a song by Chicago came on and I realize how much I really enjoy their music. I made a Chicago station as a favorite.

I also have favorite music stations for a variety of genre depending on what I use it for...for example while working out I listen to some rock...some recommended by my son, and some by other O 35 members.

Anyway since there are threads to favorite genres, rock specifically, what is your favorite Top40 contemporary group.
My two favorites Chicago and Earth Wind and Fire

Here both were in concert together, August 2004 at the Greek Theater in LA, finding this was a treat!

I've always loved the sell outs by the name of Asia! I love this band, though its odd as I don't really care for much of their prior bands works. The music is overwrought, pompous, and bombastic, and yet I still ****ing love it!! :D

Edit: I also loved Chicago back in the day. In 1984 I was stationed in Millington TN, and their album 17 came out, and much like Asia, it was big and overdone, yet again, I loved it! In their case though its sad that 17 was their biggest selling album, good as it was it doesn't represent the best of Chicago to me.

Not to split hairs here, but Chicago hasn't been in the Top 40 in decades. For my money, LMFAO is the hottest thing in Top 40 right now. Yeah, they're ear candy, inane and ridiculous. But that's part of their charm. Besides, their music is incredibly motivating in the gym.

You two just think you're so clever!

Today the gym had the 80's pop channel on. I heard These Dreams, Push It, Control, etc. I was in heaven! :D

It doesn't matter how old the group is, if a group was EVER in the TOP 40 with their songs, thats a Top 40 group.

yes and LMFAO is TODAY in the Top 40, and in 30 years you can still consider them a Top 40 group.

I really, really dig EW&F and Chicago. Got a bunch of their stuff on my ipod. That's music for the soul!
