    I'm going with Brooke on this one. I also love NKIT... Glenn's voice, the beautiful harmonies (especially Randy's "tears on your shoulder, ooo"). Truthfully, if it had been closer, I don't know how I would have voted. I guess I just want to show some love to the song that gave me goosebumps at concerts so many years ago!

    I vote for Hotel California

    Well - If this had been a clean sweep, I would also have gone with NKIT - it is one of my top 5 favorite Eagles songs. However, I'm like Brooke ... I really believe that Hotel California should win the game. But, I'm not too sad because NKIT would probably win almost every time if it were on one of the other albums. So, to show some love ...

    I cast my vote for Hotel California.

    Well, the this final round turned out to be a landslide. There were great expectations - everybody was watching it. Well the runner has checked out, however, such an awesome song can never leave. But there's a new kid in town and everybody loves it, don't they? Yes - the winner of our Hotel California Survivor is ...

    Congrats to the winner.

    Both deserved to be at the end of the game.

    Brooke, I know you are shocked. It wasn't an easy decision. But I felt that for a couple different reasons, I'd vote for NKIT. Everyone knows how I feel about HC. But NKIT has grown on me so much over the last couple years, and I really feel it is still somewhat underrated, and while I don't feel HC is overrated at all, I feel NKIT deserved some love this time around and I really have always voted for HC. I honestly was planning on voting for Hotel California, right up until Dreamer posted the final two songs and said to vote for one of them. It wasn't something I had planned on doing until the last minute. It was an impulse vote.

    Yip, shocked for sure even though I also love NKIT and everything about it! I'd say it is also is one of my top 5 songs. Great game everyone! Tough one for sure!

    Congrats to NEW KID IN TOWN!

    My pleasure.

    I was thinking only in the fandom of hardcores could any Eagles song beat out Hotel California in a head-to-head competition. But, as I said earlier, New Kid in Town is a great song so I'm not too disappointed that it won. It is definitely worthy.

    Congrats to New Kid in Town!!!

    Yes, thank you to Dreamer and Soda for organizing and Dreamer for tallying the votes. I love Survivor, even if it's not an album I like. In this case, any reason to pull out Hotel California and listen to it all the way through is good enough for me.

    I sat out this game, but I checked in to see Dreamer's "you've been voted off" speeches (love them!). And I absolutely concur and love the results! Great game, everyone! Thanks, Dreamer!
