Chicago Is For Me There have been many songs written about Chicago but none quite like this! Written by a singer songwriter, Frank Lamphere, who has lived in the Chicago area all of his life. Chicago Is For Me captures the energy and vibrancy of the city.
Chicago Is For Me is the new swingin' "unofficial" theme song of the city of Chicago. Chicago Is For Me is a catchy song and has an appeal to young and old alike. The tune has been one of Lamphere's more requested one's since he started performing it in 2007. This was Lamphere's second composition; the followup to Las Vegas, City of My Dreams.
Lamphere's lyric describes the breathtaking view from the John Hancock's 95th floor, gives a tip of the hat (or fedora) to the bustling night time "Rush Street" and evokes pleasant memories for sports fans that recall three prominent Chicago athletes of the 1960's. Dick Butkus, Ernie Banks and Bobby Hull.
Aside from Frank's powerful vocal, (delivered in a way that should remind listeners of the classic pop singers of the 1950-60's) this song really really swings.The all star rhythm section of pianist Jim Ryan, bassist Jim Cox and drummer Bob Rummage are in a cookin' swing groove that not only perfectly support Frank's vocals but leave lots of room for some memorable alto licks and solo by Chicago great Eric Schneider.
