    Default Mystery Songs

    I was just looking at Glenn's songwriter credits on the Hall of Fame page, and there were some songs I didn't recognize. They were the following:


    AIN'T NO LOVE
    Writer: Jack Tempchin, Glenn Frey
    Publisher: Red Cloud Music

    BOBBY BLUESMAN
    Writer: Glenn Frey
    Publisher: Stephen Cannell Music

    DON'T QUIT
    Writer: Glenn Frey
    Publisher: Red Cloud Music
    Description: 1 sound cassette + lyrics sheet
    Music Date of Creation: 1988

    GET UP KATE
    Writer: Glenn Frey
    Publisher: Red Cloud Music

    GRAND CANYON SOUNDTRACK
    Writer: Glenn Frey
    Publisher: Red Cloud Music
    Description: 1 sound cassette.
    Notes: Collection (music)
    Date of Creation: 1990

    I WON'T TAKE NO FOR AN ANSWER
    Writer: Max Gronenthal, Glenn Frey
    Publisher: Irving Music/Red Cloud Music/Too Tall Tunes

    LET'S GET HARRY
    Writer: Glenn Frey
    Publisher: EMI Worldtrax Music, Inc.

    WALTZIN'
    Writer: Scott Crago, Glenn Frey, Max Gronenthal
    Publisher: Irving Music/Red Cloud Music/Too Tall Tunes

    WHEN I HURT YOU, I HURT MYSELF
    Writer: Max Gronenthal, Glenn Frey
    Publisher: Irving Music/Red Cloud Music/Too Tall Tunes



    ----------

    I know that Max Gronenthal is Max Carl. I assume "Let's Get Harry" was for the film of the same name, "Bobby Bluesman" was for Wiseguy, and "Grand Canyon" was for Expedition Earth. As for the rest, maybe these were songs that were registered, but never released?

    That's an interesting list. It would be intriguing to know if any of them were released. What is also interesting is that four songs and the Grand Canyon soundtrack are credited to Glenn alone. When I looked at No Fun Aloud, it struck me that All Those Lies is the only song of all his published solo work that doesn't have a co-writer. Agua Tranquillo is the only other track I can see.

    I would love to hear Get Up Kate lol!

    lol! I thought of you when I saw that title, Kate!

    There are a few more that he wrote by himself that aren't from his solo career. Those are Run Boy Run and Rebecca from Longbranch Pennywhistle, and Chug All Night and Most of Us Are Sad from the first Eagles album. After that, he and Don Henley began writing together in earnest, and it seems that Glenn never really wanted to go back to writing alone. Hence we have only two songs - one of which is a 1-minute instrumental - written solely by him. Then, recently, we have No More Cloudy Days, which I believe he also wrote without collaborators. It will be interesting to see if he comes full circle with the new album.

    I don't know if the first song listed might be 'Ain't It Love'. I suspect those others might be from Max Carl's album.

    "Ain't It Love" is listed separately from "Ain't No Love," and I've checked Max Carl's albums and didn't find the above. However, it's possible I somehow missed one.

    Good grief. Fancy writing two songs with almost identical titles.

    Well, maybe he wrote them years apart or something! Besides, if one isn't released, it doesn't count, right? lol

    That Millenium concert music list looks amazing. Was any of it ever released? I've listened to the main theme from your site, Nancy, and gives a tantalising glimpse of what the rest might be like.
