32 For Chicago

So last week after I downloaded the updated version of Mass Hysteria’s new single “Chicago”, I looked at my iTunes and noticed a startling amount of records named after the City we call home.   And with the Bears going to the Super Bowl (that didn’t actually happen), I thought it would be cool to bundle them all up and post them on the site.  Well, as we all know, the Bears took the big L (no Lamont Coleman), but I wasn’t going to let all these joints I upped go to waste, so enjoy them below.

I’m sure I’m missing a handful of records named after Chicago or Chi, so before you start screaming in the comments section about leaving something off (which I’m sure I did), send in my way and I’ll add to the list.  I’m certain I’ve overlooked some songs and don’t have others in my iTunes library.
