"Love Me Tomorrow" by Chicago

Song#:  1192
Date:  09/25/1982
Debut:  74
Peak:  22
Weeks:  15
Genre:  Pop, Adult Contemporary

Pop Bits:  The band got a late-career revival with the #1 song "Hard to Say I'm Sorry." A change in sound, courtesy of front man Peter Cetera and producer David Foster, ushered in a new era of the group that would be loved by new fans, but derided by the long-time ones. This follow-up single furthered their new AC sound and on that chart is was quite successful reaching #8. It didn't do as well at pop, but it was the first time since 1978 that they got two Top 40 hits from the same album.

ReduxReview:  This is another strong AC outing from the band and I'm a little surprised that it didn't do better at pop. The verse does lack a little and isn't all that memorable, but the chorus is quite good. Although slightly weaker than "Hard to Say," it's still a quality tune that helped to define their new sound.

ReduxRating:  7/10

Trivia:  Much in the way that the album version of "Hard to Say I'm Sorry" has an extended outro (titled "Get Away"), "Love Me Tomorrow" has one as well. As the song begins to end and the band starts fading out, an orchestra is brought to the forefront and takes over to complete the song. The orchestral ending was edited out for the single version.
