    A couple of days ago I heard Please Come Home For Christmas in a supermarket - sadly it was not the Eagles version. I can't say I was a fan of it, I thought it was rather histrionic (it was a female singer - couldn't recognise the voice though). Ultimately it reinforced how much I like Don Henley's more understated vocal, I think one of PCHFC's greatest virtues is its organic sound and lack of gimmicks which I find quite refreshing compared to a lot of other modern Christmas songs.

    One little story I do have is that the first time I ever heard Busy Being Fabulous was in a store - I recognised the voice as Don's and could hear the backing vocals and guitars which gave it the stamp of an Eagles song. A pleasant surprise, good to hear one of the less well known tunes (where I come from the main two radio staples seem to be Lyin' Eyes and Life In The Fast Lane, I've heard those several times each).

    On my first day back to work this week after a christmas, new years and birthday staycation, I was awoken by my alarm with the radio station playing New Kid in Town! I was like aww what a nice surprise and a great way to brighten a day when I didn't want to be getting up at 5am!

    I love it when that happens, too, T&H! Makes the start to the day so much better!

    I have an Eagles CD in my alarm clock so I get to hear it every morning.

    That's a good idea. I might be less cranky and resentful in the mornings if I woke up to a refreshing blast of "Life in the Fast Lane."

    Listening to Classic Rewind and the DJ just said about how the Eagles had rough show about a week ago, then went on to say what happened at Hanging Rock. Mentioned that Glenn had told everyone to 'get out of here' and that Don assured everyone they'd be back. Then returned 45 minutes later to play One of These Nights. Then he laughed and said it was a nice thing about the Eagles, always full of humor.

    I guess he doesn't know that One of These Nights was merely next on the setlist! At any rate, he followed this up with playing LITFL.
