    Wow, the votes are really all over the place for this version of Survivor! I will also go with "Love Will Keep Us Alive." Tim sings it great, but it's too sappy of a song for my taste.

I think itís a pretty solid effort and I canít imagine it going before some of the others on the list.

    Ok, hereís my rather controversial choice: Love Will Keep Us Alive.

    Sorry, Timothy, I love your voice but I do not care for this song. It wasnít written by an Eagle and it doesnít sound like an Eagles song. Any band could have recorded it. Iím aware it was a hit on the AC charts but I donít think that says much other than ďweíre turning in our rock cred card and have arrived in Middle-Aged Snoozeville.Ē

    I wouldnít be surprised if Timothy himself rues the day he ever presented the song to the band cause now heís stuck with it for perpetuity.

    For the record, I completely agree with you. It is also sums up some of the reasons why I also dislike Please Come Home For Christmas.

    Funky New Year gets my vote.

    I could not listen to the studio version unfortunately, so I had to make do with the 1999 Millenium Concert version. And yeah. Lame lyrics, not really significant music, just not good. Probably the worst out of all the things here. Tbh, I don't even feel the atmosphere of New Year's in the song!

    Oh God. Almost of all these songs in this survivor are ones which I either don't really care for or don't like. Those extra songs I listed in the announcement thread are way better (IMO obviously). I will still play, but it'll be hard voting those least liked songs. Only the new HFO songs are up to the standard. I do like One Day at a Time though. Not so bad actually. Simple song with some decent guitar. And about Get You in the Mood, at least the mood and atmosphere was there.

    About Life's Been Good, I really like it done with the Eagles, but not the Eagles Live version. Bootlegs are much better. Joe's guitar had so much rawness in those, and it has been sucked out in this version. Not to mention: OVERDUBBING. I can't stand that from Eagles Live. I have the 1980 Santa Monica bootleg (July 29th, from where this recording was taken from). Clearly overdubbing is there in terms of lyrics and guitars as well. The lyrics are clearly overdubbed and guitars have been overdubbed over empty spots, as well as the last solo's piano and guitar were overdubbed. My personal favorite is 1980 The Forum (soundboard version). Way better and rawer.
    The chemistry... nuff said

    Dreamer, I pretty much agree with everything you said about this song. I never liked it, JMHO though.

    I vote for All Night Long. It's a simple little, banal kind of rocker. I'm not sure if I'd heard it before but if I had, I'd forgotten it immediately.

    I like Get you in the Mood. Yes, some of the lyrics are a bit cringeworthy, but compared to many rock songs (and All Night Long), it's ambitious. Like many of Glenn's songs, the focus is on what he could do for the girl rather than what she could do for him. I also like the mood and that it's so different from any other Eagles recording. I hear it as Glenn being inspired by being in the same studio with the same producer as Led Zeppelin.

    Funky New Year amuses me slightly, so I'll give it a pass for now.

    Learn to be Still is not a favourite but I'll give it points for being a proper song.

    I think "Funky New Year" has a great groove! Some of its lines are a hoot!

    "Been passin' 'round the bottle... make me feel brand new... the trouble with the new man is - he wants a hit, too!" lol!

    And the "hair hurts" is actually a tried-and-true joke... you're in so much pain that even your hair hurts.

    Whenever I hear it, I always want to move to the beat! Oh-woah-woah-it's-a- FUNKAY NEW YEAR!

    I agree with this sentiment. Itís just meant to be a non serious weird song, but I like the grove and the feel to it. I donít love it but itís interesting
