|Released December 8, 1976 on Asylum|
For years following, it held the title of "favorite song ever." Today, I consider it just another good song I've heard way too many times.
The only Eagles album I ever owned was their live "Hell Freezes Over" release which I bought when it came out in 1994. I was feeling nostalgic for my "favorite song ever." So, basically, it's been 17 years since I bought a CD for a song that I hadn't really cared about since 1986 and that was first released TEN YEARS BEFORE THAT in 1976! I didn't even realize til today that the Eagles released seven studio albums, six of which came out before 1980. So, that leaves us with only their 2007 record "Long Road out of Eden." I don't know about you, but I can't wait to never hear "desperado", "take it easy" or "life in the fast lane" again.
I've checked out and I'm leaving. Now.
