"Call On Me" as written by and Elvis Costello....
The feelin' was clear
Clear as a blue sky on a Sunday day
Everything was you, woah oh
'Cause no one made me feel
The way I felt with you, oh oh
Call on me 'cause

I love you
You know I do
You love me too

Then came a change
When I said I would soon be leavin' you
Nothin' else to do
Please remember I never lose the thought of you
Call on me 'cause

I love you
You know I do
You love me too

Oh, oh, oh, oh

You've got to find
Someone else to somehow take my place
Share his life with you, woah oh
But if you need a friend
You can always count on me
Count on me 'cause

I love you
You know I do
You love me too

You can count on me oh
You can count on me
You can count on me baby
You can count on me
You can count on me oh
You can count on me
You can count on me baby
You can count on me
You can count on me oh
You can count on me
You can count on me baby
You can count on me
You can count on me oh
You can count on me
You can count on me baby
You can count on me

    General CommentOne of those classic 70s songs that remind me of being a kid in my moms car driving around town. The song has a nice light tone to it.

    General CommentIf I am not mistaken, this is one of the first songs Lee Loughnane wrote for Chicago.

    General CommentIt is actually THE first song he wrote for Chicago (and, arguably, his best). He's talked before about how he met resistance from the other songwriters in the band, not wanting him to take away from their piece of the pie. I believe it was James Pankow who eventually agreed to help Lee to finish off the song. On a side note, I believe that Pankow is pretty much responsible for all of the horn arrangements anyway, but a few of the horn elements on this song were recycled for "Old Days" on the next album.

    I always wondered what the change was, and why he had to leave her. Was he drafted? Did he decide to join the CIA? I don't think he was dying with a brain tumor or cancer because he said that if she ever needed him, he would be there, (unless he meant spiritually, but somehow I don't think so).

    Maybe he discovered he had super powers and criminals would always be after him. So it was too dangerous for him to have a love interest. :) Can you tell I'm a fiction author?
