    Default Eagles Song Survivor: On The Border

    Time for our next Song Survivor! Our album this time will be On The Border. If you're new, for a basic overview of the game, see this post: Survivor Overview

    I'm going to list the songs of On The Border 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. 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 7:00 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 7:00 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!

    And the winner of On The Border Survivor is:
    ALREADY GONE!

    Songs eliminated:
    You Never Cry Like a Lover 2/19
    Is It True 2/21
    Midnight Flyer 2/23
    My Man 2/25
    On the Border 2/27
    Good Day in Hell 3/01
    Ol' 55 3/03
    James Dean 3/05
    The Best of My Love 3/07

    Game over!

    Default Round One - You Never Cry Like a Lover

    Like last time, the first one to go is an easy choice for me. I really dislike You Never Cry Like a Lover. It's SOOO sexist it's not even funny. I am of the mind that it's the man who should "try a litle harder" if he can't make his woman cry like a lover.

    I cast my vote for You Never Cry Like a Lover!

    Always in our hearts, Never forgotten

    I agree with the sentiments expressed about You Never Cry Like A Lover. I have always had problems with songs that Don has written along these lines. I think that in this situation the man should accept that he may possibly also be at fault.

    I cast my vote for You Never Cry Like A Lover.

    I also agree with what has been said about You Never Cry Like a Lover. To me, as a women I cannot stand any song which demeans women whether it is a Eagles song or not.

    So I cast my Vote for You Never Cry Like a Lover.

    Well I put OTB on to refresh my memory with the little details of the song so I could participate in this. Then I went back and read(relived) the PB thread and somehow the music didn't make it thru what I was reading. lol I'll have to try again.

    Since everyone said "You Never Cry Like a Lover", then I'll go with that. I don't know the song, so it doesn't matter!

    I cast my vote for "You Never Cry Like a Lover".

    Freyfanatic, how can you vote to cast off Good Day in Hell??? That is one of my all-time favorite Eagles songs.

    As you all probably expected, I can't vote against You Never Cry Like a Lover, either (although it doesn't look like my vote matters at this point).

    I vote for Is It True.

    Aww, how can you all hate You Never Cry Like A Lover? I love that song.

    Anyway, this is the song I do not like and hardly ever listen to

    I vote for On The Border
