    I don't know, but I like it, too - I think it's clever.

    My thanks to CAinOH and Dreamer as well!

    Well, that's two votes for the avatar. I'll probably keep it for a while, then.

I never would have guessed they would have done one of our songs, but they did a fine job!". That got a cheer.

    I sure wasn't expecting an Eagles nod when I turned on WSM.
    How cool they acknowledged the Eaglesí cover!

    I havenít heard the studio version so I donít know about the train whistle sounds (or itís been a very long time anyway). We know how Bernie liked adding those extra sound effects to music so who knows. But I am pretty sure the Eagles came up with that awesome instrumental outro in their version.

    Ha! Okay, it will stick around then. (The last one didn't last long. I like the card it came from, but it didn't translate into an avatar very well.)

    I agree... this is one hot avatar!

    So I guess it's not really unexpected, but are we all hearing "Please Come Home for Christmas" at least once a day now? I heard it no less than three times in the mall yesterday. lol

    I heard "The Long Run" at a steakhouse last night when I was out with my cousins. One of my cousins actually asked me "Who sings that?" I thought, Is he kidding? but answered, "the Eagles," to which he replied, "I know, but which one?" lol. I finally got it. "Don Henley." Ah, the uninformed casual fan.

    The other day I was listening to the radio when suddenly I thought to myself: "What a weird song...it seems like an Eagles one but..." And finally I realized it was HOTEL CALIFORNIA! Its version hurt my ears and insulted my intelligence!

    Somehow ended up at an ice hockey match the other day, where they played bits of The Heat Is On. Might have to go back more often!
