    Default Eagles Song Survivor: The Long Run

    Since there's interest, let's go ahead and get started on the game! Our first album will be The Long Run. For a basic overview of the game, see this post: Survivor Overview

    I'm going to list the songs of The Long Run here. Vote for the song that you feel should be eliminated from the list. The song that gets the most votes will be taken off of the list (or, in the language of Survivor, "Voted off of the island.") Each round, one more song will get axed, until there's only one left. I picked The Long Run because it seems to be a bit more controversial than the others! Should be fun. Remember: you're voting for your LEAST favorite, not your favorite.

    Each round will last 48 hours after posting to give people a chance to vote who don't post every day. That means that the first round will end at 4:00 Eastern time the day after tomorrow. If you miss a round, don't think you can't play. It's all good!

    Since there may be discussion posts, be sure to make it clear when you are casting your vote. Votes cannot be cast after the cut off time of 4:00 on the second day, and they cannot be changed once you have voted.

    If you get confused about what round we are in, look at this post. I'll always update it to reflect the current round. Also feel free to post any questions if you don't understand what's going on.

    If there is a tiebreaker, then ALL votes from ALL previous rounds are tallied and whoever has the most prior votes is eliminated. Thatís the way itís done on the real show, thatís the way itís done here. If there is a complete tie with prior votes (Murphyís Law), then I'll have a sudden-death trivia question ready. The first person who answers it correctly gets to break the tie. The odds of that happening are slim, but you never know, and it's good to be prepared.

    Thanks for playing. Let's have fun with it!

    We have finished the game. The winner of The Long Run Survivor is:
    Heartache Tonight


    Songs voted off:
    The Disco Strangler 1/11
    Teenage Jail 1/13
    The Greeks Don't Want No Freaks 1/15
    The King of Hollywood 1/17
    The Sad Cafe 1/19
    In the City 1/21
    Those Shoes 1/23
    The Long Run 1/25
    I Can't Tell You Why 1/27

    Voting is over!

    Default Round One - Disco Strangler

    The first one to go is an easy choice for me. I think Disco Strangler is the worst Eagles song ever released. There seems to be no attempt at a melody or even syncing vocals with instrumentation. It's painful to listen to, IMHO.

    I cast my vote for The Disco Strangler!

    My first thought was Disco Strangler.

    Then I saw Greeks...I hate it! I vote for Greeks!

    Okay - I agree that Disco Strangler may be their worst song, and I am going to vote to eliminate it. However, I still don't think it's that bad. Actually, I kinda like it. You all are just harsh!

    I cast my vote for The Disco Strangler!

    Default Round One

    Well, maybe I am harsh, but I can't help it. I can't hit FF fast enough when it comes on.

    I like The Disco Strangler - I think it's very edgy and has a lot to say.

    I'm afraid for me it's Teenage Jail because the song seems so pointless and is a waste of Glenn's talents. So...

    I cast my vote for Teenage Jail!

    lol! Honestly, I like the SOUND of the song.....meaning I like the beat, don't mind the lyrics...like Don's voice of course. But it just seems like something's off and I can't put my finger on EXACTLY what it is. I don't think it's horrible though! just not their best song.

    I have always felt it is a song that has potential but never GETS there!

    Ok, before I vote I need to explain something:
    It may be a bit strange for you but I wanted to let you know that most of the Germans don't pay much attention to the lyric of a song because it's a foreign language. Sometimes I don't understand all words of a song while listening to it. Only when I read the lyrics or I listen to them constantly. There are actually two songs which I know by heart: Lyin' Eyes and Take It Easy.
    So I need to tell you what gets my attention first: the melody and the vocals. I'm not so familiar with the older songs so I had to listen to them once more.

    I vote for Teenage Jail because I don't like the melody.
