The original.
The 2 versions are ¡¡¡awesome!!! hard pick one.
the original.a youthful  Cetera vocal...and Terry's guitar solo..which a ton of people try to do on youtube. i cant even remember the solo on the 80s version.  the video of the 80s version is cool though, and im glad there is more than one versoin...
the 80's version has a lot more powerhouse horns in it!  That is what I love most about Chicago
While the original version is the one that we all mostly "grew up" on, I would have to say that the "Nashville Studio Sessions" version, with the current band line-up, is quite a contender!  Keith's guitar solo is a tribute to Terry's, but with his own style layered in.  And...if you've had the good fortune to see the current line-up perform this live, then you have witnessed the definition of "powerhouse"!

 I totally agree with you !!    Of course I love the original version with Terry, no question.


BUT.. Keith did an outstanding job on the Nashville Sessions .  He really spent a lot of time and effort to make it so close to the original, and in doing so, paying Terry the ultimate tribute !!!   I think he succeeded !!

Hands down, no contest, the original version.  Frankly, the version on 18 made me appreciate the original even more.

I never heard any other version other that the original but I think it's kind of silly to re-record other material. 

They're both great, that's for sure. There's no topping the original but the Chicago 18 version packs quite a punch. I for one, appreciate when an artist takes one of their classics and creates an entirely whole brand new arrangement. It's been done many times in the past. Think Sinatra's 5 different versions of "Night and Day" over the years. I saw the Chicago 18 tour in which they opened with the then new version and closed the show with the original. The horn interlude on the newer version still delivers a wallop like you wouldn't believe.
