While marching through the streets at the Macy’s Day Parade, the Prospect Marching Knights were captured playing Chicago’s Make Me Smile.

Make Me Smile was written by Chicago’s James Pankow, recorded in 1969 and released in 1970. The lead singer for the song was Terry Kath, son of former Arlington Heights Police Chief Rodney Kath.
