Official audio for "25 Or 6 To 4" by Chicago.
From the album Chicago II.

Lyrics:

Waiting for the break of day
Searching for something to say
Flashing lights against the sky
Giving up I close my eyes
Sitting cross-legged on the floor
25 or 6 to 4
Staring blindly into space
Getting up to splash my face
Wanting just to stay awake
Wondering how much I can take
Should I try to do some more
25 or 6 to 4
Feeling like I ought to sleep
Spinning room is sinking deep
Searching for something to say
Waiting for the break of day
25 or 6 to 4
25 or 6 to 4

Saw them last night in concert and went wild when they played this song. Amazing how I use to dance to this song almost 50 years ago, and now here I am dancing to it again but the music is live and its them playing it.

Lamm says it's simpler than that. "The song is about writing a song. It's not mystical," he says. Take a look at some of the lyrics: Waiting for the break of day--He's been up all night and now it's getting close to sunrise. Searching for something to say--Trying to think of song lyrics. Flashing lights against the sky--Perhaps stars or the traditional flashing neon hotel sign. Giving up I close my eyes--He's exhausted and his eyes hurt from being open too long, so he closes them. Staring blindly into space--This expression can be seen often on the faces of writers and reporters. Trust me. Getting up to splash my face--Something you do when you're trying to stay awake, though a good cup of Starbuck's does wonders for Cecil and me. Wanting just to stay awake, wondering how much I can take--How far can he push himself to get the song done? Should I try to do some more?--This is the line that makes many think it's a drug song. But it is just as easily construed as a frustrated writer wondering if he should try to do some more lyrics/songwriting. As for the curious title, Lamm says, "It's just a reference to the time of day"--as in "waiting for the break of day" at 25 or (2)6 minutes to 4 a.m. (3:35 or 3:34 a.m.)

Probably one of the best incorporations of wind instruments in rock music.
