  1. Beginnings

    "Beginnings" is a song written by Robert Lamm for the rock band Chicago and recorded for their debut album The Chicago Transit Authority, released in 1969. Lamm also provided lead vocals. The song was the band's second single but failed to chart on its initial release. After the band's success with subsequent singles, "Beginnings" was re-released in June 1971, backed with "Colour My World". Both sides became U.S. radio hits, and the combined single climbed to number seven on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 singles chart. "Beginnings" reached number one on the U.S. Easy Listening chart. The distinctive acoustic guitar was originally played by Chicago's guitarist Terry Kath. In concert, Lamm has played guitar for the song, though he is primarily known as the group's keyboard player. The uncut album version clocked in at 7:55. The original single version was cut to just under three minutes, leaving only a fraction of the climactic second half. A later edit of just over six minutes for subsequent compilation albums restores much of the second half. One notable exception is the compilation The Heart of Chicago 1967-1997, which features the original full-length version of the tune. In 1974, "Beginnings" was covered by pianist Gene Harris on his Blue Note album Astral Signal. This is one of the very few times Harris can be heard as lead vocalist.

Examples of beginnings in a Sentence

  1. Joel Edgerton:

    One day ... at the end of the take, I realized I had literally mud over my entire face and for some reason it just made me really happy, as hard work as it was and as hot as it was and as challenging as all that was, I just remembered being happy... looking around at the scale and the scope of it and just remembering the beginnings of a being a young actor... and being a child dreaming of being part of these stories.

  2. Rabbi Nahman of Breslov:

    All new beginnings require that you unlock a new door.

  3. James Madison:

    The people of the U.S. owe their Independence & their liberty, to the wisdom of descrying in the minute tax of 3 pence on tea, the magnitude of the evil comprised in the precedent. Let them exert the same wisdom, in watching against every evil lurking under plausible disguises, and growing up from small beginnings.

  4. Jeffrey Vlaming:

    Dateline Mesopotamia, 3500 B.C. That's when the multi-faceted sounds we call music got its humble beginnings. It seems clappers were sent out the the fields to scare evil spirits away. These clappers started getting into the beat of their duty and, bingo, you got drums. From there, horns, strings, reeds, the whole orchestral gestalt. So, born in staving off death, music continues to nourish us in a variety of forms as different as the colors of the spectrum.

  5. Edith Hamilton:

    The anthropologists are busy, indeed, and ready to transport us back into the savage forest where all human things have their beginnings but the seed never explains the flower.
