Radio XVI, side B, track 4: “The Best Of Times” by Peter Cetera

Peter Cetera - Best Of TimesOh, Peter Cetera, you wonderful, wonderful man.  You’re like the motivational speaker of the pop music world (or would that be motivational singer?).  Whatever you’re singing, even if it’s a sad song, your voice just makes it sound so inspiring, you know?  And when it’s an actual INSPIRING song about putting your trust and faith in something or someone, well, you can’t help but take those words to heart.  Because when you sing that you got to believe in something and you got to have faith in someone, I believe that you really mean it, Peter Cetera.  It makes ME got to believe in something and got to have faith in someone, and every once in awhile that actually happens and when it does, you know what, Peter Cetera, they ARE the best of times.  I totally trust you, man.

“Best Of Times”

<awesome Peter Cetera open>

Things get bad, times get tough
Everybody knows

Gotta be a little stronger

Just to have the things you need
Everybody knows
If you try a little harder
You’re gonna live a whole lot longer

Had enough of burnin’ up the midnight hour

Goin’ out and stayin’ far too long

You got to believe in somethin’
Got to believe
When you believe in somethin’
These are the best of times

You got to have faith in someone
Got to have faith
When you have faith in someone
These are the best of times

Don’t give up, can’t give in
Never lose a minute
It’s a long hard road
Back from nowhere

Love is not what you take out
It’s what you put back in it
Take your chance, there’s no doubt
Everything will all work out

Had enough of burnin’ up the midnight hour
Goin’ out and stayin’ far too long

Yeah!
You got to believe in somethin’
Got to believe
When you believe in somethin’
These are the best of times

You got to have faith in someone
Got to have faith
When you have faith in someone
Yeah, these are the best of times

See my way
I know where I’m goin’

I-I-I-I know
I’d never think that I’d ever give up
I want it all as soon as I can

Doin’ all right
Right where I am

<awesome Peter Cetera jam>

Oh, see my way
I know where I’m goin’

I-I-I-I know
I’d never think that I’d ever give up
Oh, I’ll take it all as soon as I can

Doin’ all right
Right where I am

You got to believe in somethin’
Got to believe
When you believe in somethin’
These are the best of times

You got to have faith in someone
Got to have faith
When you have faith in someone
These are the best of times

You got to believe in somethin’
Got to believe
When you believe in somethin’
These are the best of times

You got to have faith in someone
Got to have faith
When you have faith in someone
These are the best of times
