This song was a minor hit for Toto’s debut back in 1978, as the follow up to the huge smash hit Hold the Line. While disco the rule, Toto managed a bridge between pop, rock and funky with this song.
The band chose its name after passing a road sign leading to the Victorian township of Little River on the way to a performance. They also enjoyed sustained commercial success not only in Australia, but also in the United States. They have sold more than 25 million records and bagged 13 U.S. Top 40 hits.
According to Billboard, Chicago was the leading US singles charting group during the 1970s. They have sold over 38 million units in the US, with 22 gold, 18 platinum, and 8 multi-platinum albums. Over the course of their career they have had five number-one albums and 21 top-ten singles. Not too shabby.
