    Hmm...this is tough, I like both and I think they'd both deserve to win. However I think you've all convinced me, I'll go with New Kid in Town.

    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.
    I totally agree, itís an underrated song outside of hardcore eagles fans. Iíve never heard it on the radio or in public. But its one of the best songs they ever did.

    Austin thank you for your thoughtful commentary on both songs. I am a little shocked -but I think this song is so underrated and amazing. It did not win the Grammy for nothing. I agree with YEF - the harmonies, the lyrics, the guitar fills and solo are all brilliant.

    I hate to do this, but I'm voting for New Kid IN Town.

    I'm not voting for this song because its a Glenn song and its his only song on the album, but its one of my favorite Eagle songs and it ranks very high up there(like no. 1). I probably would had voted for this song no matter what. I love HC, but I love NKIT more.

    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.

    Wow, just WOW!

    As much as I love NKIT I have to vote for Hotel California.

    Obviously, it won't win now, but I feel it really should. HC made them in to the super group and is probably the most recognized song by the Eagles ever!

    Austin, I really can't believe it!

    And yes, I'm so glad this game lasted through today!
