    You Never Cry Like A Lover

    I don't dislike this song, but compared to the others, it's my least favorite on the album. I like the guitar solo and the "broken down carousel" line, but I don't think Henley's vocal is as rich as it normally is and something about the subject matter rubs me the wrong way. I like all of the songs on On the Border, so this is really going to be tough!

    Voting for My Man. Very unpopular and probably everyone (being more aligned to Bernie rather than Felder and Walsh) will disagree. Very meaningful lyrics, but that is the only good thing. Very boring. I remember listening to it, and then briefly dozed off.

    Maybe I'm in a minority in that I like You Never Cry Like a Lover.

    My pick is Is it True.

    I love You Never Cry Like a Lover. SO I can't vote against.

    So I'm going to go with Midnight Flyer. Not one of my favorites. Maybe its the bluegrassish vibe of the song.

    Brothers for life. RIP Glenn

    I'm not sure I believe in fate, but I know that crossing paths with Glenn Lewis Frey in 1970 changed my life forever, and it eventually had an impact on the lives of millions of other people all over the planet. It will be very strange going forward in a world without him in it. But, I will be grateful, every day, that he was in my life. Rest in peace, my brother. You did what you set out to do, and then some." -Don Henley

    Nothing against the song but I feel it's the weakest one on the album.

    I vote for Midnight Flyer. Just don't really like the train whistle and feel it's the weakest song.

    I have always really liked You Never Cry Like a Lover.

    I'm not ready to vote yet, but, I agree with scottside and UTW that Is It True is the weakest song on this album. I don't dislike it, but it doesn't do that much for me musically and I'm not crazy about Randy's vocals either. To me, You Never Cry Like a Lover is stronger all around. I'm one that doesn't have a problem with the song's lyrics - I just interpret it as a lover's lament about a relationship that is falling apart. The lyrics that really rile me come from Is It True when Randy says he's willing to change some if it's important to her ... geez that would really give me some peace of mind if some guy said that to me.

    Anyway, I encourage everyone to vote for Is It True. It's still not too late and I'll join in if there is a chance to save YNCLAL.

    This is a hard Survivor! My vote is for On the Border. To me it is less organic sounding and more formulaic, like they needed another song. I don't like the funky R'nB guitar either.

    I'm voting for You Never Cry Like a Lover. There's not a "bad" song on the album, this is just personally my least favorite.

    Midnight Flyer.

    -----------

    Sorry, lost my cell signal before I could elaborate

    I actually like the song it is different and the way the band performed MF live at Cal Jam was awesome. They were all excellent especially Randy on the lead vocal.

    I'm choosing it as my least favorite of all the tracks.
