    I'm voting for Life In The Fast Lane.

    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. You did what you set out to do, and then some." -Don Henley

    The last 3 songs are all really masterpieces in their own rights so I think I will have to listen to all 3 again before I decide which to eliminate
    Thanks GA - Sometimes the lyrics in a song are very conducive to the little snippits and other times it gets rather challenging. As I've said before, if anyone has any ideas for a song when we're playing a game, feel free to PM me.

    And I got quite a giggle out of this. Brooke, it looks like you are going to have to remind Soda to remind you. The good news is the last round won't end until Monday.

    And last of all, my vote. As much as it pains me ...

    I cast my vote for Life in the Fast Lane.

    Default Re: Results for Round Six

    The next song to be eliminated in Hotel California Survivor is Life in the Fast Lane. "Life in the Fast Lane” they say we can be ruthless, they say we can be crude, but the tribe has spoken. We know you were eager for action and hot for the game, but all those outrageous parties must have made you too tired to make it. Now, it’s time to go up and down the highway and look for the stop sign to find your way off the island. The remaining two songs may return to camp.

    I vote for new kid in town. A seamless and brilliant song. The harmonies, the lyrics, the guitar fills and solo are all so good. Hotel california is a great song, but new kid in town is special to me.

    I just want to say that I'm happy that HC made it to the end, as it should have. The best song they ever did, IMO.

    I'm personally torn. HC literally saved my life and it's my favorite. It's also the song I credit taking the Eagles to superstar status and being their best work. NKIT, on the other hand, has grown on me. I used to put it with Tequila Sunrise and Lyin' Eyes as a song I didn't really like or get but I really have grown to love it over the last couple years. It's not really country (thankfully), it's more of a soft rock thing and I DO actually like the lyrics and Felder's guitar work on the song. I also am tempted to vote out of respect for Glenn. But I'd be selling the song short saying that's the only reason I would be voting for it, as it deserves to win based on how good it is and I'd be voting for all of it's qualities, not only in remembrance of Glenn. While I don't love it quite as much as HC, I think it's made it's way into my top 5 Eagles songs and as a hard rock guy - that's saying something. It's also a song I think doesn't get enough love from people other than Eagles fans. It's not as big as Take It Easy or Hotel California.

    The best two songs on the album made it to the end, IMO. Now I've got to make a decision. I will probably both shock some people by my choice, and maybe even upset others (because I've campaigned for the other song from the beginning) by my choice. I'm very happy with either song winning, and both deserve to be there. I've gotta go with my gut on this one, put the (potential) flame suit on, and go ahead and make my vote.

    I vote for New Kid In Town for the win.
