    Well said Dreamer. LBG is my favorite thing Joe ever did, and the Eagles version is just an amazing performance. I'm gonna hold my vote for a little while until I can make a strategic decision.

    It is a crowd pleaser live, but a lot of that seems to be based on Joe's personality and his comedic chops more than its musical virtues. The song is literally a joke, or more accurately, a series of jokes.

    I guess I just don't look for deep lyrical meaning in music. I know I've shared a lot of it elsewhere on the board, but I like feel good, funny, party, upbeat, etc songs. To me that's just my style. I don't require much depth, after all I like Poison and KISS, so there you go. To me it's a great song and I could name 3 or so at least I'd like to see go before it. The fact it's a solo song doesn't bother me so much. It's much better as a band song, and I think an Eagles show without playing LBG is a travesty. Thankfully, they played it both times I saw them. I heard Joe play it solo live, nowhere near as good. It's a fun song, and I like that.

    Me too, NKIT. Let's not let LBG go down yet. I don't think the lyrics are silly, I think they are funny and clever. But, the bottom line is the song is included on the 'Live' album and we are supposed to be judging the performances, not the songs. So, although Saturday Night is a lovely song, Life's Been Good is a far more engaging, fun, and energetic live performance.

    I cast my vote for Saturday Night.

    Oh, you haven't been part of a Survivor contest before, have you? There's a lot of vote lobbying going on during the contest. All in jest, mind you... maybe.
