    Default Eagles Song Survivor: Desperado

    Time for the Desperado Survivor, where we vote off the songs on the album until we get to the last one standing!

    If you're new, for a basic overview of the game, see this post: Survivor Overview

    I'm going to list all the songs on the album here. Vote for the song that you feel should be eliminated from the list. The song that gets the most votes will be taken off of the list (or, in the language of Survivor, "voted off of the island.") Each round, one more song will get axed, until there's only one left. Remember: you're voting for the one you think should GO, not the one you think should stay.

    Note: Do not criticize how/why other people vote. Their reasons are their own and they are free to vote however they like. Also, never attack a fellow poster. You can disagree without making it personal. Sometimes these games can get heated, but remember... it's still just a game.

    Each round will last 48 hours after posting to give people a chance to vote who don't post every day. That means that the first round will end at 8:00 Eastern time the day after tomorrow. If you miss a round, don't think you can't play. It's all good!

    Since there may be discussion posts, be sure to make it clear when you are casting your vote. Once the board clock strikes 8:00 pm Eastern on the second day, no more votes will be counted for that round - even if it's only seconds after. Your votes also cannot be changed once you have voted, even if you change your mind or make a mistake. Once it's on the record, that's it - so be careful!

    If you get confused about what round we are in, look at this post. I'll always update it to reflect the current round. Also feel free to post any questions if you don't understand what's going on.

    If there is a tiebreaker, then ALL votes from ALL previous rounds are tallied and whoever has the most prior votes is eliminated. Thatís the way itís done on the real show, thatís the way itís done here. If there is a complete tie with prior votes (Murphyís Law), then I'll have a sudden-death trivia question ready. The tie-breaker question will be asked one hour after results are in, if there is need for it. The first person who answers it correctly gets to break the tie. The odds of that happening are slim, but you never know, and it's good to be prepared. The exception is the last round. If the tiebreaker does not resolve the last round, then the tie will be allowed to stand.

    In order to avoid voter fraud and trolling, we require that you must be "a member in good standing" as defined by the Terms of Service for at least two weeks before the start of the game in order to cast a vote.


    The winner of the Desperado Survivor is Ö

    Doolin-Dalton/Desperado Reprise

    Songs Eliminated:
    Twenty-One 4/19
    Bitter Creek 4/21

    Outlaw Man 4/29
    Doolin'-Dalton 5/01
    Desperado 5/03

    Hope everyone enjoyed the game.

    Thanks for playing!

    I love every single song on this album. It's hard for me to pick one to vote for even now, and it's just going to get harder. This is going to be a tough game!

    That said, something's gotta go...

    I cast my vote for Twenty-One.

    I love the energy and the harmonies, but I voted for it because one line always bothered me: "I can't give a reason why I should ever wanna die." It doesn't seem to make sense in context - of course he can't. Why would he be thinking about wanting to die at that point? Just seems a bit awkward. Only flaw I could find, and a minor one at that, but I had to make a decision somehow.

    I'm with Soda on this one, love love love all the songs. This is probably one of my favorite cd's ever from any artists, any genre. But I vote for Twenty One as well. Its good and I love singing along with it in the car, but something has to be first.

    This IS my favorite album of all time and as such, it's hard to choose a song to go, but I'd have to agree with everyone else so far: "Twenty One" it is.

    I'm going with Twenty-One. I don't like that song. I love country, but too much banjo.

    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.

    There are a few I could choose to go first, but I'll go with everyone else here and vote for Twenty-One - too country for me also.
