April Members’ Perspective: Song About CFBC

CFBC members select songs that best capture the emotions, memories and experiences of their years in the Chicago Family Business Council. The number one choice among all members was We Are Family by Sister Sledge!

Celebration by Kool & the Gang because I feel Forum infuses such a positive energy, support, and life which is truly something to celebrate and make you feel good.”

Donna McCaleb / Noland Sales Corp.

“The theme from Cheers! – Where Everybody Knows Your Name. CFBC has the most welcoming group of people from all walks of life.”

Beethoven’s 9th – Ode to Joy. It is my favorite. It lifts me up and I feel I can tackle anything after listening to it cranked up to number 11.”

Art Lukowski / Oil Express

Chale Chalo by A.R. Rahman – most of Rahman’s music reminds me of accomplishing the nearly impossible and celebrating results. This is one in particular is more of a battle song.”

Kevin Walter / Tasty Catering

Good Feeling by Flo Rida. My daughters put together a playlist for my iPod and this was on it. Every time I have a big presentation, client meeting or softball game, I listen to this song. You can’t help but get pumped up by this “happy” song. The lyrics, especially parts of the chorus and the second verse sums up how I feel after interacting with CFBC members to date.”
