    That's not what the title says, or the lyrics.

    Johnny Thompson music is a name I haven't heard in a while. I went to Alhambra High, which was spitting distance from Pedrini's, so that was my go-to music store. But I would go down to Johnny Thompson from time to time. Played my first ever Jazz Bass there, as a matter of fact. Fell in love with the looks, and wanted one since. Finally got my first one probably 30 years later!

    I just looked up Johnny Thompson, and apparently they are still there!

    The guy with the watch probably knows what time it is, and the woman asking the question seems to care.

    It's 00:25:31 to 4:00.

    My brothers both got married in 1978. The band at my younger brother's wedding played a **** ton of Chicago.

    Not sure about the time, but I can say the Solo played by Terry Kath is in my top ten. Jimi H was impressed. This Russian Group does an outstanding job on it.

    I understand.

    We’re trying to interpret the title and lyrics in this thread. That’s what I was doing - offering an interpretation.

    He has talked at length about the song. It does mean 25 or 26 minutes to 4:00 AM. The song is about songwriting and writer's block. Pretty well known... they did a whole interview thing on Sirius XM.

    It is 3:35 or 3:34 AM, according to Peter Cetera. 25 or 26 minutes before 0400.

    As a freshman in HS, we did an entire Chicago halftime show with the marching band. Included Free, 25 or 6 to 4, If You Leave Me Now, and 3 other songs that have escaped my memory after 34 or 5 years after the fact (see what I did there...)

    I like 25 because it’s divisable by 5.

    If I had one more hand or foot I could count to 25.

    Sets of 5 are very important.

    I learned about it from the great documentary about the band. I had never really been motivated to google it, and when Lamm explained the song, it was a moment of "ooohhhh, so that's what it's about."

    I love watching all of these music documentaries that are coming out. There's always some interesting little details, along with the bigger stories.
