    Oh my - This game just keeps getting worse. lol I absolutely love Out of Control - the song stands alone as the most rockin' energetic song on this album. Glenn attacks this one with such reckless abandon that it makes my head spin. This round is not over by a long shot, so if you want to save Out of Control, we can't afford to split the votes. So here I go again ... let's ban together and save this rockin' song ...

    SAVE OUT OF CONTROL!!!

    VOTE FOR SATURDAY NIGHT!!!



    So to make it official ...

    I cast my vote for Saturday Night.

    Just dropped by the site after being away for a very long time, and saw that you were in the process of a Desperado Survivor, so had to check that out. Desperado is my favorite Eagles album, and one of my very favorite albums of all-time.

    But then I was dismayed to see that in the first 3 rounds, 3 of the best songs on the album have already been eliminated. What?
    I know that it is hard to choose any songs to be eliminated from this album, because every song is great, there really are no 'weak' songs here. But still, both of Bernie's great songs were first 2 to go? Really?

    Bitter Creek - Bernie's best song, and THE underrated gem of the album. Just so cool. My pick for best song on the album.

    Twenty-One - Great bluegrass-inspired banjo tune. Fun, positive, upbeat ditty that perfectly sets the stage for the downward spiral that plays out through the rest of the album.

    Certain Kind of Fool - Randy's best song. A Classic.

    Again, although no weak songs here, I would have selected Saturday Night, Outlaw Man, and Out of Control (in that order) before any of those three already eliminated. Anyway, having been through these Survivor games before, I know that's just how these things go. Everyone has their own personal favorites and preferences, and it's all good music, always interesting, (and fun? - well not always).

    Ok, so moving forward, for this round, I would have to say that I select:

    Saturday Night for elimination.

    Okay, if I don't post this now, I'm likely to forget or not get back in time. After some consultation with another fan, I've decided to vote for... but this is so hard to do...

    I'm voting for Saturday Night.

    I love both of these songs so its a hard one to call. After listening to both again today (I love setting myself homework- Lol) reluctantly I have decided to vote off Saturday Night. I just love Glenn 's gutsy vocals on OOC so would love to see it survive just a little bit longer

    I vote for out of control. I think it’s time. The other songs are simply better in my opinion

    These are all great songs, but

    I cast my vote for Outlaw Man, primarily because it is the only song on the album composed entirely by someone outside the band. So in a sense, it is a bit less of an 'Eagles' song, and although theirs is the definitive 'classic' version, it still is basically a cover of singer-songwriter David Blue's original version of Outlaw Man. That does not diminish the song in any way, but that is enough to send it away before the rest of the other classic Eagles songs left in play, as far as I'm concerned.

    Well- I'm happy that things finally went my way in this game. I really am glad that Out of Control survived the last round and I hope it stays around for a while longer. I totally disagree that all of the other remaining songs are better. I think this song deserves to hang around because it is the lone song that has what I call the 3 R's - it's raw, raunchy, and rockin'. Glenn gives this song his all with the energetic and passionate delivery that sets it apart from many of the other songs on the album.

    However, at this point, the game is really hard. This is such a great album and I think all the songs are strong. So, I'll buy into B
    BKron's argument about Outlaw Man. Don't get me wrong, I love the song, but I love 'em all so this is as good a reason as any. I'll join in to try to save Out of Control ,,,

    I cast my vote for Outlaw Man.
