    I definitely prefer Get Over It to Hole In The World.

    Again, as usual, I think of the Eagles as a guitar band and not a vocal harmony band, so songs like GOI really cement that for me. I don't really care about harmony vocals all that much as a uptempo rock n' roll guy.

    I never listen to HOTW. I listen to GOI and SBR fairly often. I think GOI is underrated.

    It's funny how fans of the same band have such different perspectives. I love the guitar (and let's face it, the Eagles wouldn't be the Eagles without all the great guitar work and solos). Still, the lyrics and the vocals, especially the harmonies, are what matter most to me.

    I like and dislike different things about the three remaining songs, but one doesn't really stand out to me over the others, so I'm going to refrain from voting from here on in.

    Yeah I concur. I always saw the Eagles as a rock band more than a vocal band. My first few songs I ever listened to are all rockers (Hotel California, Take It Easy and their cover of Joe Walsh's Turn to Stone). In fact, for a rock band, their vocals are better than most! Many other rock bands' vocalists just scream! Those 3 songs I mentioned are what made me think, "they rock!" Only after that I listened to their ballads.

    Get Over It is my favorite HFO song, and arguably my favorite of all songs after reunification. I like how all 3 guitarists got a part in it. Felder's part particularly rocks, and those solos easily win over the repetitiveness of HITW (though that has decent vocals) and the fakeness, and fraudulent nature of SBR. I am surprised that no one cares about it tbh (no offence).

    Also, slightly off topic, the Seven Bridges Road version I listen to most often is 1980 Long Beach. They sounded so stellar and genuine there. And that high pitch of that bootleg (which is due to an error of the recorder btw) makes the effect more prominent to me for some reason. My favorite version of GOI is the Burbank DVD version.

    I am going out to dinner tonight, so I may be a little late getting the results of this round posted. They shouldn't be too late because I have everything ready to post as soon as I get in.

    It looks like Hole in the World will go down this time, which is my choice. I am honestly surprised it lasted this long. However, since it doesn't need my vote, I will vote strategically for my next choice ...

    I cast my vote for Get Over It.

    I care about it but the other people who expressed concern about it stated that they liked the song more than they were concerned about the fraudulence of it. So it's just you & me, it seems as well as Brooke who voted against it who it bothered the most.

    The next song to be eliminated in Non-Studio Album Songs Survivor is Hole in the World. “Hole in the World” the tribe has spoken and there is a hole in your world tonight. I know you are disappointed about all this fighting over who will be anointed, but remember love is just a state of mind. You won’t be reaching our promised land, so please leave the island immediately. The two finalist may return to camp.

    If they were in a time crunch and Glenn was MIA, I could see it happening esp. if Glenn had already expressed disinterest about it.

    Didn’t someone say Felder’s part was also doctored? I don’t think he could have mentioned Glenn’s parts being replaced without also having to mention his part was also faked—if he even knew about it himself.

    Actually several of us expressed reservations about it so we do care, but what can we do? I certainly don’t go out of my way to listen to this version anymore. However, I still believe the song to be better than many of the other candidates, plus it was a “new” song back when I bought my first Eagles album, so it holds some sentimental value for me. If SBR were going up against higher-caliber songs, then my vote would be different. It’s regrettable so much studio doctoring went on esp. b/c it probably wasn’t even necessary.

    My vote goes to Seven Bridges Road for the win.

    My vote goes to SBR. This song is so iconic in terms of just establishing the band’s harmonies. It’s doctored but it is largely authentic. You can just lesson to the first seconds of it and it is just gorgeous. Get over it is a good song, but It doesn’t stick with me as well. SBR is just so Eagles and thus takes my vote

    My vote goes to Get Over It for the win. Only thing to vote for here. The other is a pseudo-live track overdubbed to a large extent. Get Over It on the other hand is a genuine recording with no shady stuff behind it. Not to mention that GOI is Eagles written and it is ROCKING!!
