    Happy Anniversary, Desperado!

    I got the full album on my iPod only about half a year ago, since I hadn't actually heard every song... but it was a good buy, because it's an awesome album!

    Ha, Zelda, I was reading this thread and thinking about when I threw away the 8-track tape I had of it.

    I go the CD route too! As soon as I saw that it was Desperado's anniversary I put the CD in the player right away to listen. I play it often. It's one of my faves!

    HAPPY 39th ANNIVERSARY 'DESPERADO'!!!

    This is my 2nd favorite Eagles album next to Hotel California. As has been said, not a weak track on the album, IMHO.

    Okay, it's been several months since we've done this, so I'm going to recap how this works for those folks who may be new to this.

    This isn稚 exactly a game, but more like a poll with no other purpose than to be an exercise of fun. I知 going to list all the songs on the album and ask folks to rank them in the order that they like the songs from favorite to least favorite. I値l give folks a week to post their list in this thread, and then I値l calculate the results so you can see how close your list is to the combined results.

    I値l calculate the lists like this. If there are 10 songs on the album, I値l assign a point value of 10 points to the song that each person lists in 1st place, 9 points for the 2nd place song, and so on until the last place song gets 1 point as follows:

    Song 1 10 points
    Song 2 9 points
    Song 3 8 points
    Song 4 7 points
    Song 5 6 points
    Song 6 5 points
    Song 7 4 points
    Song 8 3 points
    Song 9 2 points
    Song 10 1 point

    For example, Person A puts the song 羨BC in 3rd place so it gets 8 points; Person B puts 羨BC in 5th place so it gets 6 points; and Person C puts 羨BC in 6th place so it gets 5 points. So all total, the song 羨BC gets 19 points. Then, Person A puts the song 噌YZ in 1st place so it gets 10 points; Person B puts 噌YZ in 4th place so it gets 7 points; and Person C puts 噌YZ in 2nd place so it gets 9 points. So all total, the song 噌YZ gets 26 points. Of course, if the album has 12 songs, then Song 1 receives 12 points.

    After I calculate the combined scores from everyone痴 list, I値l post the list in the order of which songs had the highest points to the lowest. You will be able to see how close your list comes to the 杜aster list. If others post a list after a week, I値l update it with their scores. So here we go the songs for the Desperado album are as follows:

    Doolin-Dalton
    Twenty-One
    Out of Control
    Tequila Sunrise
    Desperado
    Certain Kind of Fool
    Outlaw Man
    Saturday Night
    Bitter Creek
    Doolin-Dalton/Desperado Reprise

    Now, list these songs in the order of your most favorite to least favorite.
