I would never vote for Boston if this were a competition of cities, but as a band, they're way ahead.

Tough choice because I like both.

City vs city XD

I've probably heard many songs by both, but don't know them by name, what are some noteworthy songs from them?

Chicago also did "25 or 6 to 4" which is hard to believe was recorded by the same band that did the lame-ass "You're the Inspiration."

Early Chicago songs are better (same with Boston). Gotta go with the first two albums.

25 or 6 to 4, Make Me Smile, Beginnings, Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?

I went with Boston. They got guitars and a spaceship.

I dunno if liking Boston's first record makes me less hip and with it but when it comes to that particular brand of radio-rock (Boston, Journey, Foreigner, Styx, etc.) that album destroys the competition. I mean "More Than a Feeling." "Peace of Mind." "Hitch a Ride." "Smokin." And of course **** "Foreplay/Long Time." You can't mess with that.
and that's the waaaaaaaaaay the news goes
