    I don't need to wait to cast my vote this time. I know which one I want to win.

    I cast my vote for Best of My Love.

    Come on guys! It's a stunningly beautiful song, with magnificent harmonies and a real emotional depth. Don's voice on it is absolutely flawless, injecting just the right amount of regret and sadness. And when he sings "You know we always had each other, baby... I guess that wasn't enough....oh, ho, woah, but... here in my heart, I give you the best of my love" - heartbreaking.

    I adore this song. It's a masterpiece.

    And so....

    BEST OF MY LOVE for the win!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Always in our hearts, Never forgotten

    I cast my vote for Already Gone!!

    It's the greatest song on this album IMO. and AG sure has stood the test of time.. being a staple at the Eagles concerts for years!

    So... ALREADY GONE must win On the Border Song Survivor!!!!!

    I don't have to wait to cast my vote either this time. This is really a shame that there has to be a loser here. I can't think of anything bad to say about either of these songs, and I wish there could just be a tie here. Both of these songs are awesome, and I totally agree with what both Soda and Timfan are saying here. I really won't be disappointed no matter what happens here. But, having said all this, when all things are equal, I generally prefer the rockers over the ballads, so ...

    I cast my vote for Already Gone.

    Already Gone. Although Glenn didn't write it it's one of his 'victory songs' par excellence. You have to love that 'my my'.

    Besides, I want to do another 'history of screenshots' of it.

    Wow, no real loser here for me. I absolutely love both of these, but....
    back in the day, Don's voice (that voice again!) just got me in BOML. It is absolutely heartwrenching.

    But, AG has two of my very favorite lines of all time!:

    "when you look up in the sky,
    you can see the stars, but still not see the light"

    and

    "So often times it happens that we live our life in chains,
    And we never even know we have the key"

    Those lines just get me every time, too!

    So what will it be?
    I vote for Best of My Love. It takes me back the farthest.

    "So often times it happens that we live our life in chains,
    And we never even know we have the key."


    I love those lines too. <sigh>


    However, for reasons Soda so eloquently expressed above, I vote for Best of My Love. It is an absolutely gorgeous song and every time I hear Don sing it, I melt.

    BEST OF MY LOVE for the WIN!

    AG is a fun song to listen to, and Glenn does a great job on it..........but imo BOML is absolutely flawless, as Soda said. one of the things that first drew me to The Eagles music was hearing the raw emotion in Don's voice. I can honestly say that, imo, there are VERY few singers who can sing a song....and make you feel like you're going through that experience with them...you're feeling the emotions that the singer is feeling. To me, I feel that when I listen to BOML. And the harmonies........wow! So obviously........

    I cast my vote for Best of my Love

    Already Gone, of course! I'm not a big "Best of my Love" fan.

    I cast my vote for "Already Gone".
