    As I said before, I am pleased to see so many of my favorite Eagles songs in the top 5 of this game, although I'm a bit surprised. I have often said that I don't believe there are any bad Eagles songs, so it's always difficult for me to rank them. However, if I have to list them, I'd probably rate my top 5 as follows ...

    1. Hotel California
    2. Take It Easy
    3. Heartache Tonight
    4. New Kid in Town
    5. Take It to the Limit

    So, this game has also been hard for me because I really am trying to rate how much I like the performances, not the songs. And, as I also mentioned previously, I think Heartache Tonight and Take It Easy are the best performances of the remaining songs. They both rock and are fun, lively, and the band is giving it all they've got and the audience seems to really appreciate them. New Kid in Town is a great performance too - it is technically near perfect and Glenn's delivery is so passionate. However, I don't think it's quite a good as the other two in terms of connecting with the audience. So, although I'll wait to vote, I hope I can persuade some of you to consider my remarks when casting your vote.

    So this is getting pretty tough for me.

    I really have grown fond of NKIT over the years. And I love the electric version of TIE.

    But I have to save Heartache Tonight. I just feel it's energy in this version and it's a great classic rock song and I have to try to save it one more time.

    I'm probably wasting my vote this round, and I'm ok with that.

    I vote for Take It Easy.

    Eeeeekkkkk

    HEARTACHE TONIGHT

    Although it's one the songs we cannot say about overdubbing at all. I just hope that this would be one of those songs which were overdubbed less.

    Btw all, just for consideration...

    Take It Easy here has a good quarter of Walsh's solo cut off and the beginning of New Kid in Town's outro was overdubbed. Originally, Glenn didn't even sing anything after singing "There's a new kid in town". He just was silent. Then after 2 more repeats of that, then only he continued singing again.

    But you know what? That's the Eagles I love. I like that slight mistake very much. In spite of the quality, that's my favorite version of New Kid in Town, the original performance, tied with Capital Center 77. Glenn's voice was much better rougher. And Felder's guitar was squealing so wonderfully previously, but the released version was too subdued. I personally feel that the Eagles from 1976-77 were best for that. More mistakes, but more genuine nonetheless and much more powerful and energetic.

    I really feel that Heartache Tonight would've been much better have they tried to improvise in it and be a little bit more loose. I could've only imagined Walsh improvising during the slide solo like Rocky....
    The chemistry... nuff said

    So sad to see Take It To The Limit go...

    Btw, Dreamer, I love the announcements you make for the results of each round, they crack me up, I look forward to reading them each time. But this line just seemed extra sad this time.
    We know you've always been a dreamer, but now you are all alone.

    I cast my vote for New Kid In Town.
