    Default Celebration of One More Song

    Randy Meisner's One More Song was released 31 years ago today

    I know not everyone has this album but all the songs are on youtube. I'll link to them so everyone can have a listen

    1. Hearts on Fire
    2. Gotta Get Away
    3. Come On Back to Me
    4. Deep Inside My Heart
    5. I Need You Bad
    6. One More Song
    7. Trouble Ahead
    8. White Shoes
    9. Anyway Bye Bye

    I listened to the album to try and rank the songs in order of personal preference and my list turned out to be in the same order as the track list. I love the whole album so I rank all the songs pretty evenly.

    Thanks for those, wc. I'll have to try to find time to give these a listen. The only one I know is Hearts on Fire, and I love that one!

    Missed out on this earlier! I think this is Randy's best album. Here is my list, from most favorite to least favorite:

    1. Gotta Get Away - beautiful and moving; love the part that goes "this time in my life..."

    2. Deep Inside My Heart - I always liked Kim Carnes back in the 80s and she sounds great with Randy on this one; plus, I love the driving beat

    3. Hearts on Fire - catchy; love the "runnin' like a ragin' river" part

    4. Come on Back to Me - another catchy one; love the "you need someone who really loves you" part

    5. I Need You Bad - a nice soft song; like the sax

    6. One More Song - a little on the maudlin side, but still good. It made me think of the Eagles.

    7. Trouble Ahead - a little too "adult contemporary" for my tastes but not bad.

    8. White Shoes - cute idea but the song isn't as interesting as the others on the album.

    9. Anyway Bye Bye - downright boring.

    I see the bottom half of my list is the same as whitcap's!

    One of the things I like most about this album was that Randy co-wrote most of the songs on it. The only covers are the two Jack Tempchin ones (One More Song and White Shoes) and the Richie Furay one (Anyway Bye Bye.)

    Most of the songs on my list are interchangeable. I love the first eight pretty equally. White Shoes took a little while to grow on me but I love it now (Emmylou Harris's version is good too.)

    Anyway Bye Bye is my least favorite for the same reason Soda pointed out. Its one of the only songs Randy sings that I don't love although I do like it. I think I actually like Poco's version better.

    A little information on the title track. Jackson Browne was performing it live as early as 1974. Jackson was actually the one who suggested the song to Randy.

    Whitcap, thanks for starting this thread and thanks for all of the wonderful tidbits of trivia you provide. I didn't know that about Jackson .

    I had this album back in "the day". I can't remember if I bought it because one of the songs was being played on the radio or what, but I'm glad I did. I gave away my original album collection years ago (I know, I know...) but a couple of years ago I purchased three or four of these songs from Itunes. My favorite has always been Hearts On Fire, probably followed by Deep Inside My Heart, Come On Back to Me and Gotta Get Away. The others I didn't care enough for to re-purchase.

    And I dream I'm on vacation 'Cause I like the way that sounds,
    It's a perfect occupation for me.
