now this was how my mom saw it. they sound alot like them, and the music is half way decent without the rapping (i guess she heard "roses") so should i try to check chicago out, or is my mom a little nuts with that comparison. (this is chicago, the classic rock band)

Erm, I think yr ma is crazy. The only time I've ever liked Chicago was when Stella (comedy troupe) used "Saturday in the Park" as the basis for a skit. Perfect.

Well, IMO, Chicago was pretty good up 'til [and including] 17.

But, no, they don't sound alike..

About as much as Eminem sounds like Blood Sweat and Tears

my mom told me the song was "i like the way you move" (the chorus), sounds a little like the chicago song "saturday in the park"

Not sure, the only Outkast I've heard is Hey Ya, and I like that. And I'm also a fan of the old harder Chicago.

I just went to Yahoo's Launch and listened to Roses. It sounds nothing like Chicago, but I can see where your Mom is coming from. Find some of Chicago's older stuff and give it a spin.
