    Default Eagles Song Survivor

    In my other fandom, Fleetwood Mac, we sometimes played a version of Survivor where you vote album songs "off the island" until you're left with one. For instance, we'd list all of the songs on the Eagles LP, and we'd hold rounds where we all vote for which song we think is the weakest until we get down to the last one standing. We could do it for each album eventually if it goes over well, but we'll just start with one (I don't care which one - it can be Hotel California or whatever). The game lasts for several days, one round each day. It can be a lot of fun, and sometimes even heated if people see their favorites getting voted off, but it only works if people are interested in partcipating. So, if we played the game, would you participate?

    I have never done anything like this, and I'd love to. I'd also like to do it with Glenn's & Don's albums, or one of each, even.

    I agree that it sounds fun.

    I would participate but I'm not sure if I understand your description of that game. Well, I will see when the game starts.

    I'll try to explain it more clearly. Have you ever watched the reality show contest Survivor? It is similiar to that in concept. We would start out with a list of songs on an album. For my example I will use the Eagles LP.

    Songs for Eagles LP Survivor, Round One:
    Take It Easy
    Witchy Woman
    Chug All Night
    Most of Us Are Sad
    Nightingale
    Train Leaves Here This Morning
    Take the Devil
    Earlybird
    Peaceful Easy Feeling
    Tryin'
    Get You in the Mood (B-sides count, too)

    Then, for the first round, each participant would vote for the song they like least. Whichever song gets the most votes is eliminated. For instance, if Get You in the Mood is eliminated, the next round would look like this:

    Songs for Eagles LP Survivor, Round Two:
    Take It Easy
    Witchy Woman
    Chug All Night
    Most of Us Are Sad
    Nightingale
    Train Leaves Here This Morning
    Take the Devil
    Earlybird
    Peaceful Easy Feeling
    Tryin'

    We would continue until there is only one song left. That song wins. There is a more complex version of the game where there are immunity questions, but if everyone wants to start slow, we can leave that off for now and just do it this way. It can be fun if people are passionate about what goes and what stays. You can offer arguments as to why a song needs to go or stay. That can get a bit controversial.

    No, I haven't seen Survivor since it's obviously not a German show. I can't remember of a similar show in the German TV.
    Thanks for your effort, now I know what you meant.

    On another happy note, my mother is very in love with my father (and vice-versa). While most of the wives left for their native homes after the incident (America, Britain, etc.), Mom refused to leave and stayed as close as possible. They first went there in 1990. Even when I was a teen, she stayed with Dad overseas while my sisters and I lived alone after that initial six-month period (my older sister was 18 at the time so my younger sister and I were OK by ourselves and looked after by her). I hope one day I can have a marriage as good as theirs.

    Oh, that sounds beautiful! I think it's rare nowadays to be happily married. (or married happily )
