    Default Name That Eagles Tune

    We've locked the old thread for this game, so Iím going to take this opportunity to tighten up the rules of the game in this new thread. As a reminder, the way this works is that one person will post a line or two of lyrics from an Eagles song, and then the next person names the song the lyrics are from, and then posts more lyrics from either the same song or another song for the next person to answer. Please stick with songs that appear on an Eagles recording or recorded by a band member as a solo artist. You can use as much or as little of the line as you wish, but be sure that you include enough so that the next person can guess the song without having to do a web search. Also, please avoid using obscure, ordinary, or unrecognizable lyrics that could appear in lots of other song (examples: heís been, you a thing, or come and gone). If a clue remains unanswered for more than 24 hours, another member can skip it and post another clue to keep the game moving. Now, if you do want assistance, you can use the EOC ĎSearchí feature since every Eagles song ever recorded is in the EaglesOnlineCentral Lyrics Index. There is also a similar lyrics index for all of the solo songs on each of the individual member sites.

    Here's an example of how it works:

    1st poster:

    runnin' down the road tryin' to loosen my load

    2nd poster:

    Take It Easy

    ========================================

    So you keep on singing for the sake of the song


    And so on... So let's start anew!

    ----------------------------------------------------

    To search all of the EOC sites for a particular phrase, follow these steps:

    1. Highlight and copy the phrase to be searched.
    2. Go to EaglesOnlineCentral.
    3. Click the 'Search This Site' link.
    4. Paste the phrase into the 'Search' field.
    5. Type quotation marks before and after the phrase.
    6. Click 'Find' and wait for the results to appear.

    Reminder! Before posting, please check out the opening post. I agree DJ so I tightened up some of the game rules to, hopefully, make them clearer for our members.

    I'm going to kick off this new thread by bringing over was189's clue ...

    need those blues

    If your post was directed at me, Dreamer, and I have to assume it was, as you did not start the tread with my answer, I have gotten better about not posting obscure songs. I understand that this is not "Stump The Border" time here. My answer to the previous post is a bit obscure, actually. In that vein, DJ's answer is :

    Gotta Get Away

    Elizasong, you didn't answer WW's 'on the range' (anyone? I don't know it)? and you used an entire verse. I can't remember that being done before.

    I have to say though I only just noticed, going back to the previous thread, that you can use a line 'or two'. I have only ever used one line per clue.
