    Let's say you've won a contest and the prize is that you get to pick any Eagles song for the Eagles to sing at a show. It doesn't matter if they've never done it live before, they have to perform whatever song in their catalog that you request. What would it be?

    This is HARD. I'll go with my first instinct though, and say that I would love to hear them do The Last Resort live now. It was one of the songs that started my love for The Eagles and Don, and it still has the same effect on me. Love the lyrics, love Don's voice, and I would no doubt cry my eyes out!


    you better put it all behind you, baby, 'cause life goes on
    you keep carrying that anger, it'll eat you up inside--

    I know, it's hard for me to even answer my own question!

    I think I'd go with What Do I Do with My Heart, because it's right up there with Waiting in the Weeds as my fave on the new album and I'd love to hear how it sounds live.

    So far, I agree with both of you. Those two songs entered my mind as definitely in the running. But, I think I'm going to go with You Never Cry Like a Lover. No, maybe Ol' 55. Well, let's just say one of those two, depending on my mood that day. That's the best I can do!

    well - in keeping with the Christmas holiday - and I don't really care WHAT time of year it was - I would love to hear Don and the boys sing Please Come Home for Christmas. He would only have to ask me once .... "PLLEEEEEEAAASE come home for Christmas..... if not for Christmas, by New Years Night" LOL

    I would have to say "The Best of My Love", although "Ol 55" would be a close second (EV, that is a favorite of mine too!)
    I love the harmonies in "Best of My Love", and in "Ol 55", I love how Glenn and Don trade parts. When Don comes in on "Stars beginning to fade", I start to swoon!

    Oh - this is easy for me. Without a doubt, it would be Seven Bridges Road. I would do 'just about anything' to hear this live.

    I would also have to go with Best Of My Love
    Any kind of love without passion
    That ain't no kind of lovin' at all

    I'd have to go along with you IABAD with 7BR. I heard them do it several times on the early Farewell Tours but even back then, it wasn't a "sure thing". They pretty much had to be having a "good night" vocally to attempt it. But when they clicked on it...it was something very special.

    Ooh, I just realized what a great concert set list we'll all be making up! So far, all the songs mentioned make my "Top __" list!

    And Dreamer, realizing what type of Eagles memorabilia you have in your possession, I'm sure Glenn is wondering just what you wouldn't do to hear that song...
