    Default Eagles - Hotel California

    Surely this has to be on any list of classics ?!

    The Eagles' "Great Leap Forward" from 1976 was a reflection on success, excess, and an angsty look at the US. Sold by the shedload due to the bands' superior song-writing, and a shift into Rockier terrain than they'd used before.

    Track Listing:

    1 Hotel California
    2 New Kid in Town
    3 Life in The Fast Lane
    4 Wasted Time
    5 Wasted Time (Reprise)
    6 Victim of Love
    7 Pretty Maids All in a Row
    8 Try & Love Again
    9 The Last Resort

    Selected vid clips:

    The classic live HC clip (audio a bit gnarly)

    Victim of Love

    Gets my vote
    Nice to be able to go back to trust and friendship!!!!!!!!!

    It's a mixed up sensation this being alive
    Oh! it wears a man down into the ground
    It's the strangest elation
    I can't describe it
    Oh it leaves a man weary
    It makes a man frown.

    Nah, I like the eagles but this album is just overrated to me so this doesnt get my vote!
