Music Trivia: Name Chicago’s 3 Songs to Reach #1?

Chicago_Heart_OfMichael Jackson went with the one word album titles:  Bad, Thriller, Dangerous, HiStory.   Adele names her album after her age:  19, 21, and her upcoming CD, 25.   But you’ve got to hand it to Chicago who stuck to Roman Numerals and every album after their April 1969 Chicago Transit Authority release, was named Chicago II, III, IV,… until XXXVI (36) last year.   Never before had a rock band incorporated such a massive horn section into their signature sound.   Over the course of the next 45 years, Chicago has sold over 100 million albums worldwide and remained one of the most successful soft rock bands of all-time.    With a catalog of greatest hits that could easily fill three greatest hits albums, Chicago has scored 21 Top 10 hits and 3 times reached #1 on the U.S. Billboard Pop Singles Charts.  Each chart topping single is an emotional break-up anthem that have stood the test of time.   Can you name all three songs to hit #1?    HINT:   Two were sung by Peter Cetera but one came after he left the band.
